Staff safety training

Personal safety

Our people often work in demanding roles and extreme conditions. They may have many different hazards to manage, whether in offshore locations, construction work in remote locations, or the transport of people, equipment and products. Whatever they do, they always ensure that they can operate safely before they start work.

Process safety

Process safety starts at the early design phase of building facilities and continues throughout their life cycle, making sure they are operated safely, well maintained, and inspected regularly to identify and deal with any potential process safety hazards.

Transport safety

Safety is a key concern for our road, maritime and aviation activities.

Moving large numbers of people, products and equipment by road, rail, sea, and air poses safety risks. We develop best-practice standards within Shell and work with others, such as specialist contractors, industry bodies, non-governmental organisations, and governments, to reduce transport safety risks.
