Life Saving Commitments

Life Saving Commitments 


GPC have 8 Life Saving Commitments that support the expected behaviours required at work so we can return home safely for the moments that matter. Life Saving Commitments are a set of clear statements that empower you to take personal responsibility for your safety. As well as our Life Saving Commitments, we encourage everyone to embrace 4 key safety behaviours as outlined below.

Key Safety Behaviours:
  1. Be a Risk Manager

  2. Operate with Respect

  3. PPE Compliance

  4. Authority to Stop Unsafe Work
