With more than 12 million hours worked for more than seven years, SOFEC has an unrivaled safety record with zero environmental incidents and zero work-related fatalities.
SOFEC strives for Zero Loss Incidents because all work-related incidents are preventable with effective safety, health, and environmental policies, procedures, and practices.
To achieve this high standard, SOFEC commits to:
- Provide health, safety, and environmental frameworks to exceed health, safety, and environmental set by OSHA, the Oil and Gas Producers (OGP), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and numerous others
- Ensure all employees and subcontractors are trained and understand their health, safety, and environmental responsibilities, including STOP WORK authority
- Diligently prevent all loss incidents and maintain effective emergency preparedness, response, and recovery programs
- Identify, analyze, and effectively manage all risks arising from SOFEC activities
- Actively protect the environment in our areas of work by preventing pollution while promoting the efficient use of energy and natural resources
Our health, safety, and environmental performance is monitored, reviewed, and reported against set objectives and targets dedicated to continual health, safety, and environmental performance improvement.
As the industry experts, we offer safe, reliable, and innovative mooring and fluid transfer systems for global offshore energy companies operating further offshore, in deeper waters and in harsher environments than considered possible only a few years ago.
