We apply risk estimation tools in order to reduce HES risks in the workplace.
In ASF, we hold the belief that development of each worker through training and understanding of our processes and products, will result in improved quality and safe behaviour.
ASF is dedicated to a systematic and continuous improvement of our HSEQ management system and our HSEQ results, so that we can fulfil requirements and expectations of our interested parties, because we hold this a core prerequisite to succeed both operationally and economically.
Therefore, we also work actively with worker’s and workers representatives’ consultation and participation.
We define improvement targets for safety/injuries, quality, working environment, occupational health and external environment, and see to it that workers comply with company utilities and processes that help reduce negative impact on the external environment, like emissions, waste sorting and consumption of fossil fuels. We have defined processes to help ensure that we are compliant with national/international HSEQ-legislation.
This policy is implemented in all parts of our organization. Its purpose to strengthen worker’s understanding and to serve as basis for a systematic and committed continuous improvement of our HSEQ-achievements.
You shall always make time to work safely!
Agility Subsea Fabrication’s objective is to carry out all activities in our companies without negative exposure to health and the working environment, injuries to staff or damage to equipment, materials, facilities or the external environment (zero tolerance). In order to achieve this, ASF has carried out risk analyses to identify dangers related to facilities and work that will be carried out. The result will be work methods and procedures that systematically prevent injuries and damages.
The work methods and procedures will be verified through systematic audits and inspections. Non-compliance shall be reported and followed up with necessary measures. In instances of serious or repeated breaches of our best practice rules, disciplinary action will be considered. ASF has a zero tolerance policy in relation to serious breaches of some of our safety rules.
Our safety philosophy is based on people as the most important aspect of working life and that a person’s most valuable asset is good health. Health, safety and the work and external environments (HSE) are important keywords in our company. The following principles apply, based on this philosophy:
- When planning and carrying out work, conditions should be put in place to ensure that there is no danger to life or health.
- Each individual worker shall always make time to work safely.
- There shall always be at least two people present when carrying out work in the industry or offshore (with the exception of carrying out service tasks).
- Undesirable incidents, injuries and accidents shall always lead to corrective measures to prevent recurrence.
- Safety shall be a part of the daily work and shall be prioritised ahead of production.
- Carrying out and following up safety activities is a daily line management task.
- Each individual worker is responsible for working in accordance with the prevailing procedures, instructions and our best practice rules.
- Each individual worker shall protect the environment by considering the carrying out of the various activities.
Good results within health, safety and the work and external environments are largely dependent on each individual worker’s understanding, acceptance and actions based on individual responsibility.
We have established a safety manual to cover the basic safety rules, instructions, directives and procedures that have been developed based on years of experience from our own activities as well as research into workplace accidents in the engineering industry.
All temporary and permanent staff must understand and comply with HSE rules and requirements. The rules in this manual do not prevent accident and injuries! We must all be alert to unforeseen circumstances and situations.
Through good co-operation, we strive to our number one objective: an injury-free company. The safety manual is available in English, Norwegian, Polish and Romanian.
HSE safety rules (Golden Rules) describe how we shall behave and work regarding HSE in the company.
The safety of our staff shall always be our top priority, and each individual is expected to take adequate time to create good safety procedures for himself and his colleagues. In other words, we would like there to be an ongoing improvement within the areas of health, safety, work and external environments. To achieve this, we require positive and active participation from all staff in Agility Subsea Fabrication.
