Improving health, safety and wellbeing

At SHV Energy we are all responsible for looking after each other and the environment. The health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, contractors and customers is our topmost priority.

Safeguarding the wellbeing of the employees who make our business operations possible, as well as our customers, is a key part of ensuring our impact on the world around us is as positive as possible. It is our ambition and determination to have zero incidents. 

To support this goal, all employees, and contractors of SHV Energy are empowered, encouraged and expected not to work in any unsafe situation, or any circumstance that they believe to be unsafe. 

“Nothing is so urgent or important that we cannot take the time to do it safely.”

Bram Gräber

CEO SHV Energy

Our activities

At SHV Energy, we believe that taking care of the health of our employees makes good business sense.  Our occupational health programme focuses on promoting and maintaining health and wellbeing to prevent occupational illnesses in the workplace.  In addition to following global guidance, each of our businesses is required to develop and implement a risk-based occupational health programme.
Our responsibility to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all our stakeholders includes our employees, contractors, and customers. Ensuring that our customers know how to use our products safely is important. A review of our past customer incidents helped us to understand how to make our products safer and better educate our customers to achieve our 2030 goal of no fatalities, injuries, occupational illnesses or disablement due to our products or operations.
CARE focuses on empowering our colleagues to take personal ownership of safety by actively looking after one another, and fostering a work environment free of injuries, and a just and fair culture where health and safety is proactively managed. Ultimately, our strategy is built upon the belief, expressed by our CEO Bram Graber, that "nothing is so urgent or important that we cannot take the time to do it safety."
Process safety management is key to our success. To support that, we implemented a company-wide standard for operational discipline and process safety to ensure that the highest standards of technical safety are respected within our operations, particularly where it relates to the prevention of any uncontrolled release and the secure containment of certain products. These standards were applied to our locations assessed with the highest process safety risk and they continue to be applied today. They are also prioritised in a phased manner at other lower risk locations. The primary focus of these standards is to safeguard the health and safety of our workers.
