ConocoPhillips Australia

Health & Safety

At ConocoPhillips we believe that all workplace accidents are preventable. Our health and safety programs not only focus on improving work practices - they strive to make every employee’s health and safety a top priority, and to eliminate all unsafe incidents.

We believe that no task is so urgent or important that our employees cannot take the time to do it safely. We aim for a workplace where all employees can return home each day in the same condition that they came to work.

 Guided by the company’s SPIRIT Values, our standard always starts with Safety. Safety is more than ensuring we finish each day incident- and injury-free: It’s “the way we work” around the world.

 Our Australia Business Unit President believes that if we can work incident free for one day, then we can work for many months and even years, without incident.

ConocoPhillips Australia was awarded the annual Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association’s (APPEA) Award for Safety for an unprecedented four consecutive years. This annual award recognises excellence in safety performance and innovation in safety management.

Focusing on safe behaviour is vital if we are to prevent accidents and improve our safety performance. As a result, ConocoPhillips develops programs that emphasise personal responsibility and empower our employees to foster a safe working environment at all times. We strive to develop a culture where each employee, at all levels of the organisation, takes responsibility for both their own safety and that of their work colleagues.

To support development of this culture, our Australian Business Units have introduced employee-driven, behavioural-based safety processes involving peer-to-peer observation and feedback aimed at identifying and eliminating unsafe behaviours.
