In addition to an inherently safe design of methods, equipment, processes and procedures; Kreuz Subsea invests in training and competences for building high reliable project management teams, onshore and offshore thereby ensuring containment of unexpected events. Irrespective of rank, our Team Members are trained to cross-check the work plans, to continuously assess the effectiveness of the barriers, to intervene as and when required and to manage the changes safely. Exemplarity in individual behaviour and excellence in supervision are among the core principles which make our performance.
In addition to external and internal audits, we maintain and improve safety by using reliable planned maintenance systems, by encouraging active reporting of unsafe conditions and incidents (including near misses), and via thorough incident investigation with transparent root cause analysis.
As part of our integrated risk management culture, we are committed to excellence for emergency preparedness and response.
