Providing physical resources – tools, equipment, materials – so employees can work safely
Creating a supportive psychosocial work environment – schedules, workloads, recognition – so employees do not work under undue stress
Driving remains the biggest contributor to fatalities . To reinforce the expectation of safe driving by all employees at all times, our driving standard focuses on reducing risks such as fatigue and distractions, emphasises not using phones while driving, hands-free or not, and reinforces the need to wear seat belts at all time.
Our HSSE Strategic Plan aims to build on our strong foundation, while recognizing the challenges presented by our broad and diverse business and the impact this brings to the HSSE system.
