Safety forms the core of our culture and guides the way we work.
Effective safety, health and environmental leadership is essential in everything that we do. In all our activities we are actively committed to stringent health and safety standards. Line managers are responsible and accountable for ensuring compliance with all health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) policies and procedures. We will always communicate openly on HSEQ issues with our stakeholders and share with them our experience and knowledge of successful initiatives.
We have an HSEQ Committee which oversees all matters relating to the safety of our working environment and practices. This Committee is chaired by the Chief Executive Officer and establishes procedures and guiding principles as it deems necessary to carry out our HSEQ policy. We maintain assessment, self-evaluation and audit programmes to monitor the company compliance with this policy. A compliance audit report is presented to the Subsea 7 S.A. Board of Directors at least once a year.
Compliance with relevant legislation
Our standards comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where we operate.
We strive to mitigate the impact of any foreseeable hazards which may endanger health, safety and the environment, or could affect the quality of the products and services we provide. This is achieved through formal risk assessments.
We provide training and development that are appropriate for each individual's duties and responsibilities – this will always include HSEQ training. Line managers ensure appropriate training is provided and also complete individual competency evaluation in line with company standards.
