Keeping our employees safe and well is our top priority, no matter where they are working. Most of our employees work on Turnaround activities, Maintenance activities and work shop activities away from home – good working and living conditions help to bring about a safer and more productive working environment.

We provide safe and excellent accommodation & welfare facilities for our employees who work away from home. This helps to establish a consistent standard for people who build our facilities around the world.

We also make sure that any employee or contractor working for SMH has access to medical expertise within four hours from where they work – no matter how remote their work location may be. This is possible using advanced telemedicine technology. The technology help doctors better diagnose illness and injuries in the field by bringing specialist medical expertise, through video connection, to some of the remote places where we have operations. It is reducing the need to evacuate people from these locations, while saving lives.



Our people often work in demanding roles and extreme conditions. They may have many different hazards to manage, whether in project locations, construction work in remote locations, or the transport of people, equipment and products. Whatever they do, they always ensure that they can operate safely before they start work.

Everyone who works for us, or with us, has an important part to play in making SMH a safer place to work. We expect people to take personal responsibility in three areas:

  • to comply with the safety rules and regulations relevant to their work;
  • to intervene to prevent unsafe conditions; and
  • to respect fellow workers and the communities in which we work.

Leading the way

Leaders across Shell, at all levels, have a key role to play in understanding the critical safety risks they are accountable to manage, and in ensuring their teams understand their safety responsibilities. Our leadership development programs help leaders to develop a clear safety vision and to continuously reinforce the importance of a safety-first culture at work to employees . Through a culture of care, we ensure our workforce is motivated to perform at its best, delivering quality work in a safe way.

Safety is our top priority every day, and each year we run an annual safety day that gives our employees the opportunity to learn how they can manage the safety hazards in their work and share ideas with each other. We also recognize outstanding performance in safety across SMH with our safety awards and rewards. These attract submissions that recognize the achievements of SMH employees.
