Message from the Managing Director
Safety is one of our core values, and we believe that by working together with integrity, we will
create an incident-free workplace every day, everywhere.
We can make this a reality if we have the right attitude to health, safety, environmental and security management: by following instructions and procedures; by upholding our own high standards and never taking shortcuts; by helping others who may be new to a particular worksite and by challenging those who disregard our rules. We all have a part to play. NBEL via its management teams will help you succeed by setting safety priorities as part of the project work execution.
I believe that safety, quality and good management are inextricably linked. A safe worksite is a well run worksite. A well-run worksite is a safe place to work.
NBEL manages HSE issues across our business and utilizes the key management principles at all of our worksites. Day to day management of HSE is a line management responsibility supported by our HSE professionals.
Remember: it is vital to maintain your safety focus at all times. If we all do so, we can create a business which is second to none in terms of safe project delivery.
