Health & Safety Performance

Data is at the core of Antero’s Safety Management System. We continually track, trend, and analyze not only our health and safety performance, but the health and safety performance of our contractors. We use leading and lagging indicators to pinpoint opportunities for improvement and continually strive for health and safety excellence.

We track, trend, and analyze employee and contractor health and safety performance. We use leading and lagging indicators to pinpoint opportunities for improvement to our safety program. We track fatalities, lost time incidents, total recordable incidents, near misses, and their respective rates.

As part of our behavior-based safety program, we track and evaluate near misses—those events that did not result in injury, illness, or damage, inclusive of spills, but under slightly different circumstances, would have had the potential to do so.
