CULTURE & TRAINING
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.
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.

By-passing safety controls
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 of it. In 2019, we published a total of 29 Safety Tips.
To adapt to the rapidly evolving scenario following the Covid-19 emergency, our Group launched a spin-off of its proprietary Safethink brand and adapted it to the current situation with Safethinkcovid-19 and the related HSE campaign, which was also carried out in 2021 on a range of dedicated information and awareness-building topics.
World Day for Safety and Health at Work
We have participated twice in the world day promoted by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in order to spread and strengthen our commitment to these issues.
Maire Tecnimont Group HSE Workshop
Our Site Managers and HSE Managers have taken part in four editions of our Group HSE Workshop.
HSE & SA8000 Multi-site Certifications
A dual goal achieved by our Group in HSE and Social Accountability, which improves the synergies between the various companies. Surveillance audits were carried out by a third-party body during 2021 which confirmed our Group’s maintenance of and strong commitment to both HSE & SA8000 management systems.
A total of more than 285 hours of information provided to around 200 employees, with the aim of reinforcing the policies and behaviors to be followed within our Group’s corporate offices, as well as all updates and additional requirements. In addition, a series of brief summaries on general HSE topics and Covid-19-related measures were provided to client personnel at corporate offices.
Train the Trainer
A 24-hour safety-related course awarding a nationally recognized qualification for internal HSE training courses. In addition to providing training principles, methods, techniques, and tools, the course covered the topics of behavioral safety and the motivation for safe conduct with a view to developing an ever-increasing safety culture.
Stop & Coach Program
An innovative program aimed at driving safety awareness by increasing the engagement and onboarding of our colleagues, clients, and subcontractors through a participatory approach.
The new Safethink soul is dedicated specifically to unconventional and emotional training for workers, contributing to our macro-objective of humanizing HSE by working on attitudinal and cultural change.
