Delivering real achievements in environment, health and safety

DELIVERING REAL ACHIEVEMENTS

IN ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH AND SAFETY

Our commitment to improved EHS has shown itself in new and interesting ways; specifically in the development of new products and services which have allowed us to be able to provide solutions that encompass your changing requirements. At the forefront of our continued EHS focus is an increasing use of "Intelligent solutions" that has opened new avenues in the improving of service to customers, which at the same time improves safety, and minimizes emissions thereby benefitting the environment.

TECHNOLOGY AIDING PERFORMANCE

Through increased software development we have been able to invest in such items as training simulators and 3D simulations, as well as remote equipment monitoring and servicing. This has meant that operators may be effectively trained on equipment before they start to actually use it; work flow may be simulated in order to make operations more efficient; and equipment pro-actively serviced in order to minimize unnecessary journeys and operational downtime. Operational risk is thus reduced, safety enhanced and emissions minimized.
