Security

We work in some challenging environments with fast-changing security issues.

Our aim is to protect our employees, partners and assets in a responsible manner, and to prevent any security-related disruption to our operations.

Our security team is closely integrated into the wider HSSEIA community, and our Security Policy sets out the responsibilities of our leadership and each of our business units.

The success of our approach is demonstrated by the fact that, in 2017, there were no significant security incidents to report.

Enhancing protection

To reflect the fast-changing security environment, we continue to review and refine our approach to security. Developments in 2017 included:

  • Launching new security focal point training for senior personnel at any sites where the threat does not warrant a dedicated Project Security Manager
  • Updating our Managing Our Security Risks handbook which provides guidance to those people responsible for managing our security risks and protecting our assets
  • Implementing a series of security assurance visits to conduct independent security assurance and validation surveys, and identify opportunities for improvement
  • Developing a new emergency response and crisis management
  • Refreshing our travel policies
  • Increasing the awareness of security issues through an internal campaign
  • Warehouse and laydown yard security measures
