Our ultimate goal is focused on reaching the point where zero incidents is the expected “normal” result of operations.

Target 10

In February 2015, Scientific Drilling launched its new HSE Management System known as Target 10. The primary objective of this management system is to sustain a dynamic safety culture that encourages employees to actively participate in the prevention of incidents. Target 10 is comprised of ten focus areas (targets) which are scaled to suit the size and scope of our organization. It serves as the foundational program for our continual improvement efforts in HSE across the enterprise. Each target includes standards (minimum requirements), work instructions, forms, checklists, and training materials.
Target 10 not only helps define and standardize our risk-based processes, it functions as the primary method used to communicate the company’s HSE expectations to our employees. These expectations, called “Target Commitments”, represent the safe work behaviors each employee is asked to demonstrate while performing their duties.
