The Life-Saving Rules are not new rules. They have been picked out because they target activities where failure to comply with safety rules has the highest potential for serious injury or death.
Having the same 12 Life-Saving Rules across Shell is a powerful way of ensuring a consistent culture of compliance.

Life?Saving Rules are being briefed to all employees, contractors and sub-contractors before the end of June. At the end of briefings everyone must confirm that they have attended the session ? for example, by signing a register..

The Life-Saving Rules will be fully enforced from July 1, 2009.

Compliance is mandatory for everyone while on Shell business or on Shell sites. There are serious consequences if Life-Saving Rules are breached ? will cover this in more detail later in this session.
We must still comply with all other safety rules. If any national law requires an even higher level of compliance we meet that national requirement.

The Life-Saving Rules target 12 high-risk activities at work where it is proven that failure to comply has the highest potential for serious injury or death.

12 Group-Wide Life-Saving Rules: all equally important, no implied rankingThese rules are not new. By driving a simplified, standardised set of Life-Saving rules across the Group we intend to achieve a culture of compliance

Failure to comply with any Shell Life-Saving Rule will result in disciplinary action. For employees of contractors or sub-contractors, this means removal from site and disqualification?from future Shell work.
