Across Petrofac, our aspiration is for zero safety incidents, and this is encapsulated in our vision, Horizon Zero. We aim to achieve zero harm to our people and assets, the local communities and environment.
You can find out more about our global safety campaign on our safety strategy page.
Petrofac benefits from a strong safety record. Our focus is to measure, monitor and reduce incidents and events that have the greatest potential to cause serious harm to our people, the environment, our assets and our business. We also acknowledge important achievements in safety performance such as long periods of time during which no LTIs occur.
Our 2017 safety highlights included:
We use our annual HSSEIA conference to share learning and to embed our safety focus. Our 2017 event was attended by 70 of our most senior leaders, including our Group Chief Executive.
The event centred on feedback from deep-dive workshops that were held across sites, offices and business units this year, where colleagues at all levels and in all functions were invited to share safety feedback.
All Petrofac safety policies and procedures apply equally to our suppliers and partners, as well as our own employees.
In 2017 we brought more rigour to these relationships with a new Contractor HSSEIA Management Standard, which sets clear expectations covering every stage of a project – from pre-qualification right through to close-out.
We continue to share expertise and reduce risk across the industry by collaborating with our peers. We are an active member of the UK Oil Spill Response Forum, and Step Change in Safety.
