HSSE leadership at Antero starts at the very top of the organization, with executives and senior management driving the HSSE culture of the company. A focus on health, safety, security, and preservation of the environment (HSSE) puts people and the community first. It is the right thing to do and also makes good business sense. Dedicated environmental stewardship and a strong safety culture reduces risk and enhances productivity. We have earned a reputation as a safe and environmentally responsible operator through continuous emphasis on our HSSE performance. This reputation also makes Antero an employer of choice in Appalachia.
Corporate and field senior staff members, including the Chairman/CEO and President/Director for Antero Midstream, congregate weekly in an Antero operations meeting which begins with reviews of Antero HSSE incidents, incident rates, and initiatives. The tone for our safety culture and environmental sensitivity is set at the top of the organization.
Antero’s senior management is active in several committees, such as the Corporate Sustainability Committee (CSC) and the Field HSSE Committee (FHSSEC). The CSC consists of the Chief Administrative Officer/SVP of Appalachian Region, SVP of Production, VP of Operations, VP of HSSE, along with other key senior staff. The CSC committee reviews and provides feedback on our HSSE initiatives to drive improvement in our evolving safety and environmental work practices for employees and contractors. The CSC meetings are well attended and occur quarterly.
The Field HSSE Committee consists of thirty key senior field staff who are responsible for reviewing and updating new programs and technology in support of Antero’s commitment to achieving the best safety and environmental practices in the industry. This Antero committee meets once a quarter to review relevant items from Antero’s safe and environmental work practices, management of change, safety and environmental data systems, and key leading and lagging performance indicators. The Field Committee and VP of HSSE presents new initiatives to the CSC for approval.
