SAFETY & COMPETENCY

SAFETY & COMPETENCY

Safety, a sensitive issue for many, but not for us. Why? Because it’s simply fundamental to everything we do.

A massive proportion of our onsite activities are carried out in the air, installing components from derrick members, CMC’s through to the installation and rig up of travel equipment.

So you will appreciate that we probably take safety of our people and our operations a little more serious than most. This is achieved in part through a dedicated training academy and fully qualified training staff, as well as a SMS that has been evolved through years of experience and field feedback, which still continues as that system continues to evolve.

We can say a lot of things about what we do and what we don’t do, but that’s what everyone else does. Take a look at our investment in the safety of our personnel and the Industry accreditations that have been achieved from that listed below.
Safety comes before everything, always.
