Safety commitments

Safety commitments

Our eight safety commitments outline the attitude and behaviour we expect to see from anyone who works with us and for us. They empower workers to speak up if they feel the work they’re asked to do is unsafe.

The commitments are a promise from every leader at Cenovus to every worker at any level of the company that we value safety above all else. Our commitment to workers and their families is that they return home safely every day. Working at Cenovus really does mean working safely.

Life-saving rules

Cenovus follows the life-saving rules recommended by Energy Safety Canada.. The rules are designed to prevent injuries and significant incidents at our operations and across our industry.

The 10 life-saving rules help us manage the risks associated with the work we do every day. We provide support materials to our staff and outline accountabilities for leaders to verify the rules are being followed as we conduct our work. The 10 life-saving rules are:
