From the top to the bottom of the Saltel employee hierarchy, everyone is trained and required to follow both the Saltel and customer QHSE requirements. Directly under the accountability of the president, the QHSE manager is in charge of general QHSE system definition, updates and extensions. He determines bi-annual objectives and KPI’s and then presents them to the management steering committee. He ensures that QHSE requirements are all understood and applied by all employees in every Saltel facility.

Our SWS organigram is implemented in each Saltel facility:

  • SWS facility manager: usually the base manager in operations dedicated facilities, he/she is in charge of local organization of the SWS process. He provides training for new employees, defines local accountabilities and organizes SWS monthly meetings. These meetings deal with customer HSE incidents, near-misses, and hazardous situations detected in any activity of the concerned facility. Each subject is discussed and tracked in the meeting minutes. Incidents and near-misses are processed in our dedicated tool (IntraKnow) and leads to the planning of curative / corrective and preventive actions. A review of previous issues is made and the efficiency of actions is evaluated.
  • SWS zone manager: responsible for hazardous situations and near-misses in his zone / activities. He is in charge of collecting and detecting issues, and ensures that actions are conducted within the defined planning parameters.


During operations, the following management chain is established:

  • Operations supervisors: QHSE leader during the entire job, he conducts the Job Safety analysis, creates and ensures a safe environment for employees to bring HSE concerns forward and hold each other accountable. He manages contractors or customer representatives to ensure they are properly qualified, trained and monitored to meet the requirements.
  • Frontline employees: Participate in safety meetings, inspections and observations to help improve the safety performance of the organization. Consistently demonstrate the Key Behaviors (Accountability, Responsibility and Feedback).
