We focus on health and safety because we believe that everyone has the right to go home in the same condition as they started the day.

We aim to be an industry leader in health and safety outcomes to protect people, communities and environments. We expect all our employees and contractors to give paramount importance to their own health and safety and that of others to keep each other safe.

Our safety culture

We expect all our employees and contractors to give paramount importance to their own health and safety, and that of others. We look after each other and we keep each other safe. ‘Our Safety Culture’ describes the positive or effective "I will" behaviours that contribute to excellent health and safety performance and a strong safety culture.


Process safety

Process safety describes a framework for managing the integrity of facilities through disciplined application of systems and processes. We regularly review our facility designs to proactively identify risks. We apply rigorous inspection and maintenance schedules to identify risks and manage the integrity of our structures, equipment, piping and wells to prevent a loss of containment or hydrocarbon release.
