Safety Culture

• a continued focus on process safety, as well as streamlined business processes to assess and mitigate risk; and • reinforcing the corporate framework for safety communication and awareness to inform and support operational areas. In addition to a focus on safety, SaskEnergy takes a number of specific actions toward emergency preparedness. Through the corporate Emergency Management Program, SaskEnergy develops, trains and practices for emergencies to minimize their effects to customers, employees and communities. Some key actions include: • emergency response training for key staff; • incident command training, table top exercises and full-scale exercises; • natural gas awareness training for first responders throughout Saskatchewan; and • cooperative and coordinated emergency response efforts with other utilities, ministries and agencies in the province. The Injury Severity Rate is a new measure being reported beginning in 2021-22. It measures the number of lost worker days, due to injury, per 100 workers.

Employee and public safety are at the core of SaskEnergy’s work activities. Hazard identification, risk assessment and mitigation, and sharing learnings to promote awareness and continual improvement are safety priorities throughout the organization. At the end of the 2020-21 fiscal year, SaskEnergy achieved a Total Recordable Injury Frequency Rate (TRIF) of 1.43, meaning there were 1.43 recordable injuries for every 100 full-time employees. This is a decrease from both the 2019-20 TRIF of 2.31 and the TRIF target of 1.88, and is the lowest TRIF in the Corporation’s history. SaskEnergy believes that a strong safety culture informs individual and collective decisions made each day by employees and contractors, and will ultimately result in success in this priority area. Key safety initiatives undertaken include: • public safety efforts to continue to decrease the number of third-party line contacts with buried infrastructure; • collaboration with industry peers and third-party consultants to measure, evaluate and effectively manage safety culture;
