Community and the environment matter to Obsidian Energy, and the company is committed to impacting the communities where it operates in a positive way. To support their passion to do so the company has put together the Community Matters Program, which represents a solid commitment to respect the communities it works in. The program is helpful in the way it reminds the company’s workforce as well as its contractors about the importance of paying attention to the concerns of the community and encouraging open communication with locals who want to know more about what the company is doing. Obsidian Energy even has a toll-free number as well as email where community members can get answers to their concerns or questions.
Obsidian Energy also focuses on the health and safety of its employees and the communities it operates in. By working on improving safety standards and raising awareness, the company is constantly updating how it operates and the ways that it prevents any serious accidents from happening.
