Safety is the core value at the heart of performance across bp

Safety is our number one priority

A healthy and safe workplace is the right and responsibility of everyone in trading & shipping. We do it safely, healthily and with mitigated impact to our environment, or we don’t do it at all.  


We care deeply about how we deliver energy to the world. Above everything, that starts with safety and excellence in our operations. This is fundamental to our success. 


Our approach is built on respect, being consistent and having the courage to do the right thing.  


We have a determination to learn and to do things better. We depend upon developing and deploying the best technology and building long-lasting relationships. We are committed to making a real difference in providing the energy the world needs today, and in the changing world of tomorrow. We work as one team.  


Our health, safety, environmental & quality (HSEQ) strategy is underpinned by our bp safety leadership principles. Together: 

  • we genuinely care about each other 
  • we will not compromise our focus on safety
  • we encourage people to speak up   
  • we understand how work actually happens 
  • we learn why mistakes occur and respond supportively
