Safety is embedded in everything we do at Chevron Bangladesh. Our safety culture is based on two unwavering principles:

  • Do it safely or not at all
  • There is always time to do it right.

We do not compromise on safety, because getting results the right way makes us who we are.

We are committed to protecting our people and developing a workplace that is incident and injury free. To achieve this, we work together as one team to send our employees and contractors home safe from work every day.

At Chevron, we believe that incidents are preventable, and we have policies, processes, tools and behavioral expectations in place to assist us in achieving that goal. We call the systematic management of process safety, reliability and integrity, environment, efficiency, security and stakeholders to achieve world-class performance Operational Excellence (OE) – and it drives everything we do.
