Health and Safety are our absolute priority.

We have only one way of working: safely.

For Motive Offshore Group, health, safety, environmental protection, and quality are central in our day-to-day operations, as set out in our HSEQ Policy.

We take a proactive approach by integrating HSEQ-related goals, strategies, and action plans across all projects and activities managed and carried out by the Motive Offshore Group.

Through a cooperative and committed mindset, with every employee responsible for playing their part, we continually improve our HSE culture and meet our targets of zero incidents and zero harm.

Our success can be attributed to effective employee engagement, a thorough risk management process, and heavy investment in training and the reinforcement of desired HSEQ behaviours.
