SAFEMODE is our in-house initiative for ensuring that all of our site personnel endorse a working safely behavioural culture.

Health and safety is at the core of our business. We demand that we work safely without compromise. We prioritise the wellbeing of our people and we are committed to sending them home safe and sound every day by nurturing a behavioural culture that lives and breathes health and safety. This is at the heart of everything that we do which we call ‘working in SAFEMODE’.

We are committed to keeping our RIDDOR accident frequency rate close to zero. It is incumbent on us to always create a safe place of work, engage safe systems of work and utilise safe plant and equipment. We recognise that any accident or incident is one too many and we continually strive to eliminate the possibility of any dangerous occurrence.

The key objectives for us ‘working in SAFEMODE’ are to:

  • Send our people home safe and sound every day
