Health, Safety, Environment & Quality

At CRC-Evans Offshore we place high value on health, safety, environment and quality as well as promoting a safe working environment for all personnel. Smart and fair behaviour towards others is the dominant component of our working relationships. We create goodwill when we place more value on successful continuance of relationships rather than any on ‘issue of the day.’

Generation of teamwork is based upon the triple pillars of:

  • Valuing diversity of background, behaviour and thought in order to generate innovative and creative solutions to problems and risk

  • The generation of strongly held common values

  • The instigation of a ‘no blame’ culture to remove the fear of failure

A high level of health, safety, environmental and quality awareness at all levels is essential and this can only happen through ensuring openness and the dissemination of information and knowledge to all through the guiding principles behind our communications policy that are inclusiveness, rapidity and accuracy.

Ultimately, the responsibility for behaving safely at all times and contributing towards a safe working environment and a quality product rests with each of us. At CRC-Evans Offshore, we are all responsible for safety.

Our number one priority is safety; we must remain focused on exceeding customer expectations.


Personal Responsibility

CRC-Evans Offshore success in achieving its performance targets, maintaining a solid Customer base and winning new business is fundamentally based on our highly trained and motivated management and workforce, their positive attitude, active participation and commitment to a SAFE working environment that achieves a ZERO tolerance for incidences or accidents and delivery of a quality service.

The Company expects individuals to take responsibility for their own and their colleagues health and safety whilst at work and actively encourages our people to challenge or stop any activities that are, or they consider to be unsafe. As a minimum our people are required to:

  • Stop any activity where there is a potential safety concern
  • Set a personal example at all times with respect to Health, Safety and the Environment

  • Avoid improvisation / short cuts which entail unauthorized and unnecessary risks
  • Become responsible for the safety of yourself and others who may be affected by your acts or omissions
  • Keep your workplace tidy
  • Co-operate with management by participating in worksite meetings and keeping up-to-date with all health, safety and environmental information circulated to you
  • Use the correct tools/equipment for the work in hand, including the relevant safety equipment and protective clothing provided
  • Segregate and place waste in the appropriate container
  • Clean up / report spills
  • Immediately report any defects in tools, equipment or plant to your supervisor
  • Report ALL incidents to your Supervisor no matter how trivial they may appear
  • Co-operate in the investigation of any incidents with a view to introducing measures to prevent recurrence
  • Raise any HSE concerns immediately with your Supervisor
  • Assist us in meeting our Environmental targets to reduce energy consumption and waste by switching off lights and equipment after use and placing waste in the appropriate container
  • Suggest ways of eliminating or minimizing hazards, and improving environmental performance

It is published at all company controlled locations and customer sites that we operate on.

Everyone joining the company is made aware that Health, Safety, Environment and Quality are line management responsibilities and everyone within the company is responsible for protecting the environment, looking after their own health and safety and that of their colleagues, ensuring the quality of their work, and for working towards set health, safety, environmental and quality objectives.

HSE Principles

CRC-Evans Offshore success in achieving its performance targets, maintaining a solid Customer base and winning new business is fundamentally based on our highly trained and motivated management and workforce, their positive attitude, active participation and commitment to a Safe Working Environment that achieves Zero Harm whilst delivering a Quality Service.

We have started a campaign to improve our operations in a breakthrough way to achieve and maintain performance above and beyond both our competitors and our Customers’ expectations by ‘RAISING the BAR’ and reinforcing our main Safety Principle that ‘We are All Responsible for Safety’ through our straightforward formula:


Going forward, we expect all operations and activities to be carried out taking into account our Safety Principles which are as follows:

We are ALL Responsible for Safety
Our Company Management Systems are built around the principle that Safety is a Line Management Responsibility – put another way, everyone from the Managing Director to our apprentices are responsible for safety. Everyone must continue to ‘Raise the Bar’ to ensure that we never become complaisant where the health, safety and welfare of our people is concerned.

We believe ALL Accidents are Preventable
As a Company we believe that ALL Accidents and Incidents are preventable. To make something safe takes action and requires someone to do something. That something is to recognise what can cause an injury (the hazard) and then take steps to control it in a manner that ensures nobody gets hurt. To create such a workplace we need leadership and leadership is at ALL levels. Will YOU be that someone who takes action to engage and challenge the people you work with?

We will continuously strive to raise the bar and improve our standards – we will never lower them
At CRC-Evans Offshore, we have a very positive safety culture and whilst acknowledging that we sometimes work in areas that have differing cultures from our own, we must be certain to maintain our high standards and never accept anything less.

No activity is so important that we cannot take the time to plan it and carry it out safely
There is nothing that we do both as a Company and as individuals that falls out-with the above principle, so we must ensure that this principle is adhered to no matter what pressures we may come under. How long does it take to plan any activity? It takes as long as it takes, there is no time limit to analyse the task, assess and mitigate the risks. No activity will start until everyone involved in the task understands what is going to happen, what their responsibilities are and all involved agree that it is safe to start.

If in doubt, safety takes priority
Where safety is concerned, for CRC-Evans Offshore, compliance is not enough, it is the bare minimum. Do we really want to be known an organisation that does just the bare minimum where the welfare and health and safety of our people are concerned? Conformance is more than just complying with documented safety and quality procedures; it is about understanding the consequences for yourself, your colleagues and the Company if they are not followed.

Stop any activity where there is a potential safety concern or you are unsure what is happening
If we ensure that our people, our Partners and Customers all understand that CRC-Evans Offshore always make safety the number one priority, having this understanding will provide our people with the confidence to challenge others who either are not following HSEQ procedures or are failing to give proper consideration to health, safety, environmental and quality issues. It will also highlight to our Partners and Customers that our people will have the confidence to challenge them where necessary.

Management of change – Stop the activity and re-assess
As part of our safe systems of work, we have in place standard 'Stop the Job Triggers' which are ‘Any change to the planned activity’ and ‘Any change in personnel’ to ensure that all activities are carried out safely, efficiently and right first time. Any additional 'Triggers' identified at Tool-Box Talks must also lead to stopping the job to to ensure any additional hazards that may occur are assessed, mitigated through suitable control measures and controlled.

As a Company, if we plan, manage and carry out all our activities with the above Safety Principles in mind at all times, we will succeed in Raising the Bar, we will succeed in setting Industry est Practice, and we will be known as an organisation that does much more than the bare minimum to protect the health, safety and welfare of our People, Contractors, Partners and Customers.

This is a cornerstone initiative for CRC-Evans Offshore and every one of our people has full support from us and our 100% backing in implementing these Safety Principles.
