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 so to keep each other safe.

Woodside’s behaviour framework, ‘Our Safety Culture’, helps everyone, including our contractors, understand the role they play in strengthening Woodside’s safety culture. Woodside’s strong focus on process safety ensures risks are managed at all our facilities. This involves making the safety of our people inherent in the design phase, through development and into the production life-cycle. A healthy and productive workforce remains an important factor in Woodside’s continuing success as we aspire to lead the way with effective, informative and enjoyable health and well-being initiatives.

Our HSE outcomes are made up of what happens every day: the decisions we make, the actions we take, and how we are feeling - physically and mentally.

Perfect HSE

Our Progress

Over the last five years, we have significantly improved our safety performance, achieving a 60% reduction in our total recordable injury rate. This record comes not from luck, but from our belief that all incidents and occupational illnesses are preventable, from making safety inherent in the design of our facilities, from our robust policies and procedures, and from our commitment to year-on-year improvement. Our Sustainable Development Report contains more information on our performance, activities and focus areas.

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.

Woodside acknowledges Indigenous people's connections to land, water and community. We pay our respects to ancestors and elders - past, present and emerging. We recognise the many contributions Indigenous people make to our business, as community members and employees.
