Health and Safety
Safety is our most important corporate value.
That’s why we align ourselves with and support programs that help protect the health and safety of our employees and contractors as well as benefit the health and safety of those living in the communities near our operations.
Across our operations, we are working to deeply embed a culture of safety, one guided by our long-standing principle that our work is never so urgent or important that we cannot take time to do it safely and in an environmentally responsible manner.
STARS Air Ambulance
Keeping our people safe is a top priority in everything we do and knowing emergency medical services are a call away if needed provides tremendous peace of mind. CPC has been a supporter of STARS Air Ambulance since 1989, providing more than $3 million in funding. Our support for STARS aligns with our SPIRIT values, particularly safety and people. As a company, we will not be satisfied until we have zero injuries, occupational illnesses or serious incidents in our work. In the meantime, accidents can happen, and when they do, we count on STARS to be there. Having STARS close by not only benefits ConocoPhillips, it also benefits each man, woman and child living in the surrounding communities – whether that's Calgary or Fort St. John.
Local Helicopter Emergency Response Organization Foundation
At ConocoPhillips Canada, we are proud to support Local Helicopter Emergency Response Organization (HERO) Foundation. Local HERO Foundation exists to promote and deliver 24/7 emergency helicopter services for the people of Northeastern Alberta. Using the best aircraft, technologies and aviation practices they enable emergency personnel to respond quickly for medical emergencies, search and rescue, law enforcement and environmental damage. We are pleased to support this foundation which aligns with our company's SPIRIT values and supports communities in Northeastern Alberta, where many of our staff live and work.
D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) – BC Society
We have supported D.A.R.E. in BC since 2011. D.A.R.E. is a registered Canadian charity whose purpose is to empower children with the critical thinking and life skills necessary to choose a drug-free life. The Society's primary mission is to support the RCMP's delivery of D.A.R.E.’s keepin it REAL (kiR) program to BC school children in Grades 5/6. Since its inception, more than 100,000 students have gone through the program, making it the most widely delivered youth drug prevention program in BC.
Mothers Against Drunk Driving
We are proud to support Mothers Against Drunk Driving’s (MADD) School Assembly Program, which educates students on the importance of safe driving, along with the devastating impacts of driving while under the influence. Our support has helped run the program in schools in northeast British Columbia near our Montney development and Fort McMurray, Alberta near our Surmont oil sands joint venture. Annually, one million students from grades 7 to 12 in 2,000 schools across Canada benefit from this program.
City of Calgary Fire Department – Safety Education Program
Since 2007, we have collaborated with the City of Calgary Fire Department to support their Safety Education Program. As part of our support, we participate in the Fire Safety Trailer program, a mobile classroom that travels around Calgary to teach citizens about fire safety. The trailer is brought to schools and community events, where it allows participants to experience an actual fire situation. We also provide financial support for the development and translation of multilingual educational materials (e.g., brochures, posters, web copy, social media posts, videos) to help promote public and fire safety messaging.
