Core Laboratories is committed and accountable for promoting a culture centric on the health and safety of our employees and the environment. We are
pro-active towards identifying and managing risks through recognition, evaluation, and education. We empower our employees by fostering a sense of
responsibility for managing their own work environment through open communication, and a management supported zero-accident culture.
In 2021, Core Lab recorded a TRIR of 0.48 and LTIR of 0.20 slightly up from previous years. Core Laboratories has continued to operate as an essential
business with timely delivery of products and services to our clients during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have also implemented a continuity plan across our
global organization to protect the health of employees while servicing our clients. The business disruptions described above have halted, impacted or
restricted operational workflows because of quarantine protocols, restricted travel, delays in product delivery, projects delays, as well as cost cutting
measures. This operational stress from COVID-19 impacts, along with a significant reduction in manhours, has resulted an increase to recordable incident
rates in 2021.
Safety Goals: Path to Zero
Core Lab will establish goals and targets based on 3-year averages. It is our view that sustainability of our safety program must be measured over longer
periods of time and that high performance safety cultures display solid downward trends over time.
Trends for both LTIR and TRIR have continue movement towards growing sustainable safety cultures within all business units. Core Lab firmly believes
trending of 3-year averages best shows the sustainability of the safety program over time by removing the short-term peaks and valleys. This provides a more
stable and measurable LTIR and TRIR, avoiding safety expectations on performance based on just one good or bad year. Core Lab goals are set with the
expectation of driving down these averages in 2022.
Core Lab recorded another year without a fatality. The number one goal of Core Laboratories is to prevent all incidents, but especially those with
significant impact to the environment, our employees, and their families.
