At a chemical site, there are hazards and risks that must be assessed to ensure a safe working environment. Strict regulations and procedures also apply. Safety takes top priority at our sites. We aim to prevent all accidents through well thought-out preventive measures.
The 12 Life-Saving Rules (LSRs) are the outcome of a review of processes that present a particular hazard potential. These rules were developed based on the outcome of these analyses and in consideration of the international standards in the oil and gas industry.
The 12 Life-Saving Rules have proved effective in preventing serious accidents and have become a part of our safety culture. Everyone – employees, contractors, suppliers and visitors – is a part of this culture. The aim is to develop a culture of open communication in which near-miss events are reported. This helps us to work on becoming even more effective in preventing accidents.
