Maire Tecnimont Group has launched Safethink, a communication campaign and a new brand aiming to maximize our Health, Safety & Environmental culture.
We were looking for something that could clearly distil the multiple facets of our HSE identity: a definition, a character, a symbol. But none of these options seemed to do best represent the corporate safety vision and message. That’s why we created a new word: Safethink, expressing in a concept the basis for every single action we take. Excellence in safety means we cannot afford to make the wrong choice; we must always make the right choice. Every decision is important, especially when it concerns the safety of all people working with us. Our new Safethink brand helps each of us actively think about safety, reinforcing our shared HSE identity.
The Safethink campaign aims to promote HSE practices through four cycles from offices to construction sites focusing on different themes: Tools, Behaviours, Environment and Social Accountability.
SAFETHINK RULES FOR LIFE
During the second HSE communication campaign focused on behaviours we defined and launched for sites the “Safethink Rules for Life” consisting in a selection of 10 safety rules that the Group considers of primary importance for the prevention of accidents.
The rules were not simply taken from those defined by IOGP (International Association of Oil&- Gas Producers) but have been customized to reflect our context. In fact, additional rules have been defined and ad hoc pictograms have been created, to emphasize the distinctiveness of our safety culture.
Their implementation promotes our most important goal: protecting workers’ lives.
HSE AWARENESS PROGRAM
We launched a five-year plan with the aim of defining a new approach to HSE culture in order to fa- cilitate general empowerment of HSE awareness at Maire Tecnimont. The “HSE Awareness Program” breaks down into a series of initiatives.
These are “training nuggets” sent by e-mail on a weekly basis to all Group employees to enrich awareness of procedures and promote good practices on HSE and SA8000 issues, both in the workplace and outside. In 2019, we published 29 Safety Tips.
HSE SOCIAL INITIATIVES
These social gatherings on HSE and SA8000 issues are geared toward the development of local areas, carrying out activities that tangibly express the values of our Group. We have organized a series of HSE social initiatives in some schools in Central Italy.
These are “training mini-packages” on HSE and SA8000 issues, delivered with a pleasant and fresh communication style about work-life and extracurricular activities. They are usually used as ice-breakers at the opening of meetings with customers, suppliers, etc.
HSE COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN
As mentioned about Safethink, our communication campaigns keep a strong focus on HSE and Social Accountability issues. We launched two communication campaigns in 2019, aimed at all employees at headquarters and on construction sites.
BE SAFE PROGRAM
It’s a program implemented for sister companies’ projects to promote a “Working in safety” approach and increase knowledge on safety issues. It’s based on the involvement of field supervisors in the detection and management of HSE non-compliance.
HSE CELEBRATION DAYS
These are specific events during which we reward excellent HSE performances during construction projects.
“Reinforce Awareness in Safety & Environment” is an intensive program, launched for a Tecnimont ExxonMobil project and aimed at spreading and strengthening HSE awareness through team building activities. Workshops on specific safety aspects is the format we have chosen to deliver this program.
