protecting people

our commitment to health and safety

Protecting people and the environment is one of our Chevron values.

Safety is embedded in everything we do at Chevron Australia. Our safety culture is based on two unwavering principles: do it safely or not at all; and there is always time to do it right.

We do not compromise on safety, because getting results the right way makes us who we are.

We are committed to protecting our people and developing a workplace that is incident and injury free. To achieve this, we work together as one team to send our employees and contractors home safe from work every day.

At Chevron, we believe that incidents are preventable, and we have policies, processes, tools and behavioural expectations in place to assist us in achieving that goal. We call the systematic management of process safety, reliability and integrity, environment, efficiency, security and stakeholders to achieve world-class performance Operational Excellence (OE) and it drives everything we do.

OE is based on the following focus areas:

eliminate fatalities, serious injuries and illnesses

eliminate high-consequence process safety incidents and operate with industry-leading reliability

assess and manage significant environmental risks

use energy and resources efficiently

prevent high-consequence security and cybersecurity incidents

address OE business risks through stakeholder engagement and issues management
