We live safety

We take an active stand on safety

We want our employees and contractors to be out of harm’s way at work, and their families to trust that we’ll bring them home. And we want our customers and partners to be confident that we strive to keep lives and assets out of risk, no matter where they are. Every day we learn more, towards safer ways to operate.

When our business was founded in 1904, the world we operated in could be a dangerous place. Going to sea put lives and ships in peril, and returning home safely was not something you could take for granted. We’ve learned a lot since then, and we keep learning. As we have continued to grow around the world our businesses have become much more complex, the risks have changed, become more diverse, and securing a safe workplace requires constant vigilance.

That’s why, as a company, we take an active stand on safety.

There can be no compromise on this. We can live with delays and the costs of stopping unsafe operations, but we will not accept the consequences of risking the lives or health of people, or harming the world we live in. That’s why we never rest on our journey. Every day we learn more, making strides towards safer ways to operate. It’s central to how we do business. It is a prerequisite, not merely a priority.

That’s what we mean when we say that we live safety.
