HSE for Youth
The Schlumberger HSE for Youth program mobilizes employees and their spouses to share expertise within our communities. It informs and empowers young people to make responsible, safe, globally and personally considered decisions regarding Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) issues.
More than 4,000 young people participated in 199 HSE for Youth workshops held in 41 countries in 2017. More than 677 parents and other volunteers helped organize the workshops teaching children to stay alert, think calmly, and act quickly to protect themselves when at home, in school, or elsewhere in the community. Participants included more than 400 children of our customers, 1,600 children from local communities including schools and orphanages, and about 2,000 children of Schlumberger employees. The workshops on nine HSE for Youth topics are helping thousands of children learn about personal safety through games and fun activities. The latest workshop, developed in 2017 on the topic of first aid, is being well-received.
HSE for Youth by the Numbers
HSE for Youth in Action
Two fire trucks and an ambulance attended an HSE for Youth event in Houston, where approximately 25 children of Schlumberger employees learned first-aid techniques that focused on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and choking. During the workshop, two of the firefighters raced each other to don firefighting gear, and the children practiced a number of first-aid techniques on mannequins. Using the Company’s proprietary “Risk Ring” methodology, the children also learned about making safe choices. The event finished with a pizza party and certificates of completion for the children.
Additionally, Schlumberger employees and more than 150 of their teen and pre-teen children got together with the families of Addax Petroleum, a Schlumberger customer in Douala, Cameroon, for a HSE for Youth workshop and year-end celebration. Schlumberger frequently invites the children of customers and people in local communities to take part in HSE for Youth workshops, but this was the first time Addax invited an oilfield services company to attend its annual year-end event.
