TOTALENERGIES USES SAFETOLOAD

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PLATFORM
SAFETOLOAD FOR OIL EXPLORATION OF
TOTALENERGIES IN CONGO BRAZZAVILLE

The Republic of Congo, also known as Congo Brazzaville, is a central African country with significant petroleum and natural gas reserves. It is a landscape marked by vast tropical rainforests, a vibrant culture, and bustling urban centers. Congo Brazzaville is the third-largest oil-producing country in Sub-Saharan Africa, and the petroleum sector is a cornerstone of its economy.

TotalEnergies, a global leader in the energy sector, has established a significant presence in Congo Brazzaville, contributing to the country’s economic growth and development. However, the energy exploration activities come with a set of safety challenges, including the management of a complex fleet of vehicles in diverse and often harsh environments. Ensuring the safety of these operations is critical, given the potential risks associated with the transportation and handling of hazardous materials.

Strengthening security at TotalEnergies: Audits, Extensions and Self-Inspections

To conduct comprehensive Audit de Conformité Matériel (ACM) – Equipment Compliance Audit – on the TotalEnergies fleet.
To extend the safety checks to heavy-duty vehicles rented by the company.
To implement “Quick Check” controls for self-inspection by vehicle drivers, fostering responsible behavior and continuous safety practices.

Challenges: Adaptation and Adoption for Safety in Oil Exploration

Adapting the SafeToLoad platform for the specific needs of petroleum exploration activities, which involve a diverse range of heavy-duty and specialized vehicles. Ensuring the adoption of self-inspection routines by drivers, requiring a shift towards more responsible and safety-conscious behaviors.

Customization and Controls for Safety in Oil Exploration

The SafeToLoad platform was customized to facilitate ACM checks, covering a wide array of vehicles used in petroleum exploration, as seen in the provided checklist screenshot.

These checks include, but are not limited to:

  • ACM – Forklift
  • ACM – Truck
  • ACM – Mobile Crane
  • ACM – Grader
  • ACM – EP Trailer
  • ACM – Steelbro Trailer
  • ACM – Backhoe Loader
  • ACM – Light Vehicle

The “Quick Check” controls were also developed to empower drivers with the ability to perform regular safety assessments on their vehicles. This initiative is part of a broader project aimed at embedding a culture of safety and responsibility within the daily operations of petroleum exploration.
