  • striving for global best practice
  • ensuring continuous improvement by measuring, evaluating and reporting our performance progress against objectives and targets
  • using risk management processes to identify, assess and manage risks
  • consulting with our people, partners, and customers to improve the safety and sustainability of our working environments
  • learning from and providing appropriate training to our people, partners and customers
  • reporting, investigating, learning from and responding to work related injuries, illnesses, near misses, hazards and environmental incidents
