Health and safety

The health and safety of our people is imperative to our business. Striving for excellence in health and safety makes good business sense at a number of levels: it results in higher performing teams and more reliable operations and activities; and it makes us an attractive business partner.

We are committed to continually improving the standards of health and safety in the workplace.

Our vision and goals for health and safety and how we commit to achieve them are set out in our global HS&E policy.

This describes how performance improvement is delivered through a strategy that focuses on three areas:

Capability and culture
To instil HS&E at the heart of everything we do, we need consistent, visible leadership and commitment from managers at all levels. We must also engage effectively on HS&E with all our employees.

Systems and processes
As we continue to grow there is an even greater need for robust HS&E management. We continually strengthen our HS&E management system, running effective assurance programmes and sharing what we learn from incidents.

Risk-based improvement programmes
We implement prioritised work programmes focused on key areas of risk. Recent examples include electrical safety, control of contractors and process safety.

We regard the health and safety of our employees and those working on our premises, or on our behalf, as paramount.
