Zero Harm

Contract Resources' key value is zero harm; focused on care for Health, Safety, Community and Environment with a target of zero incidents. This is achieved utilising a fulltime safety management team to provide internationally recognised and respected safety training programmes and systems to ISO-9001.

  • Our purpose-built training facilities are equal to, or better than, any available in the industry today.
  • Contract Resources frequently provides site safety and rescue teams during shutdowns and other hazardous activities.
  • Highly-skilled trainers make use of superior, unique in-house facilities to provide specialised, tailored training and refresher courses to OSHA and NZ/AUS standards. These include confined space entry, breathing apparatus (hard helmet and soft mask systems), work in inert atmospheres, torquing and tensioning, advanced first aid and rescue techniques, fall arrest and height safety training, dogman, rigging and load lifting, rope access, gas detection and monitoring, and other specific training.
  • Basic Offshore Safety Induction Emergency Training (BOSIET), and T-BOSIET; for tropical waters, allows Contract Resources’ staff to safely work offshore and all our training providers are OPITO Approved.
  • CR has adopted the new industry standard Common Safety Training Programme (CSTP) for all new offshore employees. Our existing offshore technicians have completed the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and safety behaviour observation process to achieve their CSTP cards.
