Text on Screen: Safety starts with people


Richard: Here at Hess safety starts with and ends with people. This is the people that we work with, the communities in which we work and the big world around us.


Text on Screen: It’s about the way we work


Patience: Safety is about more than just the absence of incidents. It's about the way we work. It's about working in a way that is structured, deliberate, and thinking things through.


Richard: Number one, each one of us have a responsibility to know our jobs. And it sounds very simple but that's essential. And number two, that we follow the procedures that we have. Following those procedures keep us safe. And number three, if we're not clear or if we're unsure, you have to stop a job.


Text on Screen: The courage to stop the job


Lucy: I think there's a bit of a stigma that, you know, if you stop something due to some concern over safety or you shy away from doing something because you're concerned for your own safety, you're not considered to be brave or you're not willing to take risks. That's really not what it's about. It's about having the courage to actually say, "No, this is not safe. And we shouldn't work until it is safe."


David: So I'll often say to engineers, if it really doesn't feel right, it isn't right. Let's trust your intuition. If there's any concern that you may have, raise it. It's something that is important to you, it's important to us. So, my message to young engineers is to trust your intuition. If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't right.


Patience: Operating safely isn't just a priority.


Richard: It is our mission.


Lucy: It's who we are.
