We believe safety is a Core Value and Business Priority, that all accidents are preventable, all employees must have ownership of safety and that safety is performance-based and must be managed.
We provide safety leadership, measure and evaluate leading indicators, proactively manage safety and continually improve, have effective Safety Management Systems for employees and contractors and meet or exceed compliance with health and safety regulatory requirements. For us, safety excellence is also operational excellence.
The Health and Safety Policy, in conjunction with our safety goal, sets out the overall objectives and principles for occupational, health and safety management within our safety system, identifying key responsibilities for management, operating site managers, employees and contractors.
We track common safety statistics, and the focus of our attention on the leading indicators of safety performance. These include near-miss incident recording and field level hazard & risk assessment activities that have a demonstrated correlation with safety improvement.
As a primary resource industry, many of the hazards and risks in manufacturing facilities cannot be eliminated. Hazards and risks must be mitigated or controlled by procedures and practices, which rely on human factors or fixed barriers.
Our approach is that all accidents are preventable, all employees must have ownership of safety and that safety is performance-based and must be managed. We actively update safety systems and programs to effectively manage and maintain safe workspaces and continuously improve performance. We use systems, communications, equipment safeguarding, training, and best-practice sharing to improve every location’s ability to monitor their risk tolerance, identify hazards, mitigate hazards and learn from incidents.
