Health and safety

At KCA Deutag we believe that we can be free from incidents and accidents every day in all our operations worldwide if we all do our jobs correctly. 

The way that we plan and carry out our activities should have the purpose of achieving our vision of safe, effective and trouble-free operations every day in a way which causes no harm to the environment.

Health and safety is a core value and therefore our top priority is to ensure that everyone working on behalf of the company goes home uninjured at the end of the day having caused no harm to the environment. Everybody has a responsibility to lead by example and take actions to ensure our operations are incident free. Each individual must make sure their own actions are safe and they must stop and challenge anyone they see acting in an unsafe way.

Effective operations are also safe operations. Both are good for our commercial success. Doing things the right way, even when nobody is watching, is part of our culture. Conducting open and honest investigations when things go wrong is a vital part of making sure we get better and better. Recognising when things go well and sharing our successes is an important part of achieving excellence across the whole company.

Our leaders make sure there is integrity throughout our operations and that we have the right people, the right equipment which is maintained correctly and the right materials in the right place at the right time to achieve it. We all have a part to play in achieving that plan and if we do then we can operate safely and without incidents. There should be no unpleasant surprises on a KCA Deutag operation.

We can achieve safe, effective and trouble-free operations by following our #OneTeamWay approach, working to our WE CARE core values and complying with our worldwide standards and management systems. If we all do this we can achieve our aim of every day being an accident and incident free day.
