Safety, Health and protection of the Environment

Safety, Health and the protection of the Environment (SHE) is the number one value in all NSMP operations. Working with our Operator ( we are committed to world class SHE standards and avoiding all cases of workplace ill health, injuries and incidents, including damage to the environment (both onshore and offshore). This is achieved by supporting our Operator in creating working conditions that encourage positive attitudes and contributions from all personnel and is underpinned by our Safety, Health and Environmental Policies.

Both the Teesside Gas Processing Plant and the St Fergus site are classed as top tier Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) sites, and as such the management and operation of the sites must comply with the COMAH Regulations. This requires that Safety Cases are submitted to the HSE, who regularly visit and audit the sites. We have in place the operations and maintenance structure, training program, systems and procedures (including Incident Control Plans) required to comply with the COMAH Regulations and to provide an appropriate establishment and the staff competence to deal with emergencies.
