Safety is a core value at SPM, and we believe it is possible to work without serious injuries. Our objective is “Zero Injuries” in all our operations.

Our vision for safety: “together with our employees and contractors, we will create an injury and illness-free workplace where everyone goes home safe and healthy every day”.

At SPM safety is about people - not numbers. We recognize that our employees and contractors play a key role in achieving our safety objectives, and we are committed towards building a safety culture where everyone knows that they can make a difference and where all have the knowledge, competence and desire to work safely.
