Prosafe adopts a zero mindset philosophy when it comes to HSSEQ. We believe that active preventive efforts will allow our business to operate with minimal negative consequences for people’s life and health, the natural environment and material assets. Responsibility for and contributions to achieving the company’s goals rests with all employees.
This commitment is further described in the company’s Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality Policy (HSSEQ Policy).
Prosafe operates in accordance with policy, procedures, routines and guidance documents hosted in our Integrated Management System (IMS). Our IMS is accredited according to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
A systematic approach towards effective health, safety and environment work is a high priority responsibility for line management within Prosafe. Active and visible involvement by management at all levels is a key factor in achieving our company’s goals. Prosafe managers are expected to lead by example and facilitate good working practices through engagement and efficient utilisation of the required resources to assure safe and efficient operations.
Managers must show in practice that safety takes precedence over profits and schedules. Should a conflict arise between operations and safety, the latter must always be given first priority. No safety rules may be broken and no short cuts may be taken to complete jobs quickly.
A pro-active culture
We emphasise commitment and embrace participation at all levels of the organisation to ensure that all employees and sub-contractors perform their work in a safe manner, contributing actively to reducing risk and taking action when undesirable conditions, acts or behaviours are observed.
We want Prosafe to be known for its proactive culture in which HSSEQ is an integral part with our behaviours and actions characterised by respect, trust and concern for others. We insist that employees take the time needed to evaluate risk in their work and ensure that their colleagues are aware of the potentially hazardous operations we are involved in.
Colleagues must function as safety barriers, and call for interruption of work when they observe unsafe behaviour or conditions to prevent such situations from developing into accidents. We empower people to take action.
Through the participation and contribution of the entire workforce, and open and close collaboration with customers, sub-contractors and authorities, we will create proprietary attitudes and achieve continuous improvement.
We are committed to reducing risk and learning lessons when things go wrong. We believe that transparency is the best form of accident prevention.
Accidents and undesirable incidents are reported and followed up in a systematic manner in order to continue building a culture and environment that promotes learning. Safety for people, the environment and material assets must be created and re-created every day and demonstrable in our actions and behaviours.
