Incidents and Spills

At Santos we focus on the prevention of incidents and spills.

To minimise the risk of incidents and spills, appropriate training and equipment monitoring and maintenance programs are implemented.

Santos’ Environment, Health and Safety Management System incident investigation and response standard defines the robust system in place to investigate and respond to incidents. This increases awareness of the incident, generates opportunities for continuous improvement and reduces the risk of recurrence. All incidents, near misses and hazards are required to be reported into the company incident management system and risks are incorporated into site hazard risk registers.

Santos has established strategic relationships with national and international organisations to provide quick access to personnel and equipment in the event of a spill.

We transparently report and publicly disclose environmental incidents, spill volumes and any fines incurred in our annual sustainability report.
