Environmental Health Inspectors from the Environmental Health Section of the Rivers State Ministry of Environment, led by an Assistant Director, visited our Port Harcourt office in May 2019 for the second quarter Environmental Health and Safety Audit.
The primary aim was to verify the level of our conformity to environmental health and safety regulations, and more importantly, ascertain how well Bell Oil & Gas (BOG) protects the health of workers.
During the inspection, the inspectors focused on pest control, industrial hygiene and water sanitation. They went through documentations using their checklist which covered several areas among which are basic organizational information, structure, culture, services, major chemical/equipment in use, types of waste generated, method of waste collection and disposal, staff health facilities and surveillance, implementation of health and safety management system, source of water supply and treatment, pest and rodent control, compliance with waste management laws, proof of registration of agent and fumigation certificate for the quarter, building sanitation and potable water analysis, among others.
They were impressed with the level of compliance in BOG. Our premises was certified fit at the end and we were advised on continual improvement. The officers also commended the organization for being in good standing with the Ministry over the years.
