HSE is more than a value. It is our identity.

Our HSE Policy specifies the principles, objectives and targets, roles and responsibilities, as well as the management criteria necessary to supervise each HSE issue.

We pursue our objectives and targets with the direct involvement of all staff in each area: design, purchasing, construction, and commissioning of our plants. Workplace safety is therefore not only a priority but is a fundamental value that each of us practices every day. We strive to increase the involvement of our colleagues, customers and subcontractors, because HSE values must be a shared by all. Maire Tecnimont has successfully created an innovative "Safethink" brand as the basis of a new, shared HSE culture and identity. Our challenge going forward is to strengthen that culture through a deeper campaign to put a human face on HSE and get all employees and stakeholders involved. We want to make sure this new HSE vision is adopted by each of us in every single activity.

Training is at the heart of our path, which is essential to ensure the development of professional skills and abilities for all employees of the group. For this reason, our program includes specific courses to improve HSE knowledge, divided by job and role of the employees involved.

Over the past three years, we have dedicated more than 7 million hours to training, and from 2020 we have enhanced the awareness plan launched in 2018. With this in mind, the "Safethink" brand has evolved, becoming the cultural basis of our awareness program, representing the core around which all program initiatives are based.

Health and Safety performance

Over the past three years, the aggregate hours worked at the Group's offices and sites totaled more than 301 million.


HEADQUARTERS MAN-HOURS EMPLOYEES 7,485,863 8,169,147 8,349,884
SITE MAN-HOURS EMPLOYEES & SUB-CONTRACTOR 132,635,629 105,483,828 39,220,459
TOTAL MAN-HOURS WORKED 140,121,492 113,652,975 47,570,343


In 2020, the Group recorded 39 million Long Term Injury (LTI)-free working hours for the Hydrocarbons Business Unit. This strong track record was the result of a huge effort made in health and safety issues. Our average Long Term Injury Rate (LTIR) is consistently below the industry’s average, and in 2020 we reached a peak of excellence with zero injuries recorded. In addition, using the same benchmark data in 2019 for 2020, the recorded Total Recorded Injury Rate (TRIR) indicator is 9 times lower than the benchmark.

By their very nature, events classifiable in the LTI category are infrequent. Therefore, in order to statistically depict their trend over time, we need to adopt a much longer observation period than a single year. To this end, the IOGP (International Association of Oil & Gas Producers), whose statistical analysis we use as an industry benchmark in the HSE field, has adopted the 5-year rolling formula for the LTIR indicator, and our organization has done the same.


An analysis trendlines in recent years confirms the Group's commitment to excellence in reducing accidents. In fact, our values remain consistently well below the IOGP benchmarks, and in the last five years the trend has clearly been downward, as is immediately visible in the graph above.
