Health, Safety, and Environment
Oil States is committed to business conduct that actively promotes and protects the Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) of its employees, contractors, business partners, visitors and the communities where we work. Specifically, we are committed to the following:
  • The setting of global targets for continuous HSE improvement
  • Employee participation through safety committees, behavior-based observations, and STOP work authority amongst other programs
  • Global conformance with Oil States’ HSE management system or an internationally-recognized / certified management system and compliance with all applicable national, state, and international HSE laws and regulations
  • A systematic approach to the management of HSE but with local and individual responsibility and accountability for the HSE programs
We are transparent in our communications about our HSE commitment to employees, contractors, vendors, and customers and solicit their input in improving our HSE program. Employee participation is a vital element in the success of our HSE process. Where existing laws and regulations are not adequate to assure protection of human health, safety, and the environment, Oil States will establish or follow existing internal policies and procedures to assure such protection.

Environment
Oil States’ commitment to environmental matters is an integral part of our culture and business practices. It’s our policy to ensure that integrity of our processes and facilities are protective of the environment. We strive to prevent releases to the atmosphere, land, or water and will employ waste minimization techniques wherever possible.

Anti-Bribery
It is our policy to comply with all applicable anti-bribery laws, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act, the Brazilian Clean Companies Act, and all applicable local laws where Oil States operates. It is also our policy to require agents, consultants, representatives, contractors, distributors and joint venture partners who work on our behalf to comply with these same laws.
