PNG-LNG project safety

Health and safety

We conduct our business in a manner that protects the health and safety of our workforce. This is a core value and business driver, one that shapes decision-making at every level.

With a workforce drawn together from diverse cultures, work backgrounds and experience levels, the Project provides programs and services to help our workforce perform in a safe and healthy manner. We also incorporate workforce and community health considerations into Project planning, understanding that a healthy workforce benefits the Project and the broader community.

The Project’s safety philosophy is an ongoing commitment to creating a work environment where “Nobody Gets Hurt”.

We provide workers with the knowledge and tools to execute each work activity safely, and strive to prevent all accidents, injuries, and occupational illnesses through the active participation of every employee.

We manage the risks associated with our operations through the implementation of our Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS), which monitors, benchmarks and measures our performance in 11 different elements that address aspects of our operations. The OIMS framework establishes common worldwide expectations for addressing safety, security, health, environmental, and social risks in every aspect of our business, guiding the activities of our employees and driving our operations from top to bottom.

Safety Champions

The PNG LNG Project Safety Champions program plays a vital role in promoting a positive work safety culture. The program identifies opinion leaders and natural role models within the Project’s fieldwork groups and encourages them to instill within their teams a strong adherence to safety.

By the end of 2013, more than 2,000 Safety Champions had attended a multiday training course, focused around core safety fundamentals, communication skills, and additional techniques to support their supervisors and work groups. Exceptional Safety Champions are selected as Champions of Champions, representing the very best from each of the programs.

The Safety Champions program inspired me down a new career path and I began studying during myrecreational leave. Now I am working to complete my Certificate Level IV in Occupational Health and Safety and new opportunities have opened up for me.
