Health and safety

Excellence in HSE is integral to everything we do. It is our most important shared value. We aim to be safer today than we were yesterday and safer tomorrow than we are today.

HSE excellence

We take our duty of care to the people who work for us extremely seriously. We are embedding safety culture across the business with zero tolerance for accidents, damage or harm to our people. Our goal is to conduct our business activities with no harm to people, minimal impact on the environment and zero accidents, today and in the future.

Developing best practice

We believe that all incidents are preventable. Everyone at Neptune, from top to bottom, commits to our HSE policies and works collaboratively to ensure they are enforced.

Incidents and near misses are recorded, investigated and analysed through our global incident management system. We act on any findings to push incident probability ever lower. Our continued pursuit of safety unites us across countries, departments and teams in a single shared purpose.

Operating safely

Neptune is reinforcing good practice on health and safety through a Group-led safety culture programme. A continuing communications programme ensures Group and local responsibilities are understood and acted on. A global HSE steering committee, which includes country MDs, oversees the safety culture programme. It meets regularly to set high-level principles and measure safety performance.

Reducing our environmental footprint

Neptune is committed to minimising our impact on the environment: through pollution prevention, by reducing natural resource consumption and emissions, and through recycling and waste reduction initiatives.

We comply with all relevant international and regional environmental regulations wherever we operate. In some cases, we apply our own, more stringent, standards. The Group is committed to ongoing improvement to achieve best practice on all environmental issues. We’ve structured the business to anticipate change through continuous improvement.
