Workplace Health & Safety Policy
Norships key objective is to ensure the uncompromising safety of all those that work in or interface with its sites and operations.
Wherever we work we must make sure that we maintain a safe, healthy and sustainable working environment and promote a positive culture.
To achieve this all our people are empowered to continually improve our safety systems, safety culture and overall safety performance.
To do this, we will consult and work with relevant stakeholders, including the local community on relevant issues which affect their safety, in order to develop and effectively implement safety management systems that meet or exceed community expectations and all applicable legislative requirements, codes of practice and standards.
Our people are not only responsible for their own safety but also that of their fellow workers, our customers and the broader community in relation to our business activities.
It is the responsibility of all our people to comply with the safety systems and processes that support this policy and to identify hazards and manage risks effectively.

Security is everyone’s responsibility and Norship expects that all employees will contribute to continual security improvements.
The underlying security management principles of Norship are:
- Identification and management of risks associated with perceived exposure of critical infrastructure and operations;
- Effective management of criminal activity directed at customers, staff, other stakeholders or infrastructure;
- Effective management of emergencies;
- Appropriate definition and management of interfaces between different organizations and organizational elements;
- Integration of response to managing site security;
- Protection of customer, worker and public health and safety; and
- Protection of property from criminal damage
- Appropriate vetting, verification and security clearances of personnel
- Build and operate IT/ IS infrastructure to ensure access is controlled and the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data is maintained
- Appropriate reporting and feedback mechanisms
The implementation of these principles requires compliance with operational aspects, infrastructure aspects, mobile plant aspects and interfaces with other operations.
This preparedness is achieved through the effective promulgation of the Security Policy and associated Plans, training, emergency preparedness and effective stakeholder management.
Security performance will be monitored, evaluated and reviewed in pursuit of continuous security improvements.
Norship requires the ongoing vigilance of all its employees to provide secure services to all those who interface with our operations.
