Safety is our number one value and the highest priority in everything we do. We believe that our work is never so urgent or important that we cannot take the time to do it safely and in an environmentally responsible manner. We are committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of not only everyone who works for us, but also the wider community.
In 2009, 2010 and 2011 and 2012, ConocoPhillips Australia was awarded the annual Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association’s (APPEA) Award for Safety. 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, we have introduced the WAVES (We All Value Each Other’s Safety) program. WAVES is an employee-driven, behavioural-based safety process involving peer-to-peer observation and feedback aimed at identifying and eliminating unsafe behaviours.
