Health and safety of our workers is our first priority.

At Nexen, we’re committed to anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and controlling workplace environmental health hazards that may cause illness or impair the well-being of our employees, contractors or the community members who live or work near our operations.

Promoting Healthy Work Environments

We’ve developed an occupational health management system that works to promote healthy work environments, protect the health and well-being of employees and prevent occupational injuries and illnesses. This system assesses and manages individual health risks; work environment health risks; and organizational health issues that may pose a risk to our business (i.e. transmittable diseases).

We’ve also established an industrial hygiene management system that anticipates, recognizes, evaluates and controls workplace environmental health hazards or stressors. The components of this program include:

  • hazard identification and monitoring
  • risk evaluation
  • control plan development and implementation
  • employee training
  • evaluation of controls
