Overview

We believe leadership is fundamental to good safety performance. Hurricane encourages a workplace where:

  • we plan and prepare for the unexpected;
  • we work on a ‘lessons learned’ basis, investigating events where
    our safeguards may have failed; and
  • we will stop work rather than conduct activities that are in conflict with our policy and business standards.

Our focus is on making accountabilities and responsibilities clear so that everyone can contribute positively to the safety culture we are building at Hurricane.

Our approach

As a responsible employer that prioritises the health and safety duties of our personnel, we take our duties very seriously. Health and safety is regularly monitored throughout our operations and risks are assessed and managed through our health and safety framework, based on a continual cycle of improvement.

Health and safety risks are assessed and managed through our health and safety framework, based on a continual cycle of improvement. Work-related hazards are identified and risks assessed through our Risk and Opportunity Management Procedure, office-based risk assessments, COSHH risk assessments and fire risk assessments. Assessments are undertaken for new and existing offshore projects and from office health and safety and fire perspectives, covering employees and contractors working in Hurricane offices.

It is the responsibility of the Company’s Group HSSEQ Manager and Group Environmental Manager to identify, evaluate and document HSE legislation and other compliance obligations where Hurricane has legal responsibility. Our Register of HSE Legislation summarises all legal obligations that apply to the HSE aspects and risks associated with our petroleum activities identified within the HSEMS. These include approved codes of practice and guidance issued by government regulators.
