Health & Safety

We believe that safety is an integral part of our business. Hammerhead recognizes the need for training, guidance, and resource allocation to ensure that our safety standards evolve with the changing circumstances and needs of our Industry.

We partner with contractors who share our safety values. In accordance with this principle, we do not differentiate among contractors, service providers, and employees when it comes to reporting injuries and have consistently maintained a Total Recordable Industry Frequency (TRIF) well below industry average.

Our goal is to achieve and sustain an injury-free workplace as we continue our safety journey to become a safety leader and a partner of choice.

Stakeholder & Community Engagement

We work hard to establish positive, stable relationships based on mutual trust and understanding with all stakeholders, including members of the local communities and Indigenous communities. Our goal is to establish mutually beneficial collaborations and facilitate positive outcomes that are the result of consultation, negotiation, and dedication to resolving differences.

Hammerhead is committed to supporting economic and social initiatives that provide benefits for our stakeholders. With a long-term investment approach, we are growing with our community through hiring local employees, sourcing local service providers and contractors, supporting local Indigenous contractors, and supporting local development through tax contributions and revenue generation.

Indigenous Relations

We are committed to working collaboratively with Indigenous communities in an atmosphere of integrity, honour, and respect. We strive to facilitate constructive dialogues that will result in a better understanding of the impact of our projects in the area.

Equitable development of resources requires looking forward with a view to sustainable and responsible management of the environment, but it also requires looking back. The unique history and knowledge of the Indigenous communities in our areas of operations can help us shape a sustainable and equitable approach to resource development.
