Safety is a core value and our safety results place us at the top our industry.

We nurture a culture of safety starting at the moment of recruitment; with every employee's job description including an individual set of safety obligations focused on keeping them, their collegues, and the community safe.

Leadership in safety is embedded in the roles of all our managers. In addition to traditional safety metrics, their performance is tracked in relation to the number of safety audits they carry out personally, and how many ‘SafeTalks’ they deliver. 

Our site safety teams are structured and resourced effectively, while our Site Safety Managers are core members of our project leadership groups and have a powerful voice across all site activities. 

Every project maintains an HSE Risk Register and our teams work from a comprehensive set of Safe Operating Procedures, Safe Work Instructions, and JSEAs. These are all accessible 24/7 via our online library.
