Duty of care

  • We understand that many of our industry’s health, safety and environment professionals are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation.

Submissions and entries are now open for the APPEA 2020 Environment and Safety Excellence Awards.

Australia’s oil and gas industry has an unwavering commitment to the highest environment, health and safety standards.

Proactive environment and safety management measures are now embedded into the day-to-day existence of Australia’s innovative oil and gas industry.

APPEA’s Environment and Safety Excellence Awards aim to reflect and support the safety and environmental principles and leadership of the Australian oil and gas industry by highlighting outstanding examples of performance.

A company that wins an APPEA Safety or Environment Award will be a visible example of these principles being “lived” and serve as a role model for others in the industry.
