We do not compromise on safety – no job is worth an injury

ETL is committed to providing a safe workplace and protecting the wellbeing of our employees and contractors while delivering the highest quality services and solutions to our customers.

Health and Safety

ETL Group’s business culture is underpinned by the philosophy that no job is worth an injury and the belief that all injuries are preventable.

With people working in often demanding and challenging environments, ETL’s commitment to health and safety encompasses our employees and everyone affected by our activities, including contractors and visitors. With decades of experience in offshore work, ETL understands and provides the extra procedures and measures required to provide an environment and safety level that will protect people and be responsive should an emergency occur.

We are extremely proud of our safety record since our inception. During this time we have been responsible for more than 450 offtakes equating to approximately 30 million of barrels of oil without injury.

We believe that a safe and healthy workforce builds business success and are committed to continuing our commitment to zero harm.


ETL is very aware of the sensitive work our people conduct both on and offshore and our goal of zero harm extends beyond the safety of our people to the safety and protection of the environment.

We take great care to minimise environmental risks through our rigid operations procedures. In the area of offshore operations we have developed stringent procedures to manage the cargo transfer of crude oil from an FPSO/FSO to an offtake tanker in a safe and controlled manner. Through our diligence, training and attention to safe practices, we are proud to have managed over 450 oil cargo transfers in Taranaki since 1997 with a NIL oil spill count.

Similar procedures and controls are in place for the management and transfer of hazardous goods across Port Taranaki wharfs through our stevedoring operations.

We strive for continuous improvement to maintain quality processes and practices that in turn improve our effectiveness and efficiency of our performance. For ETL this commitment to excellence differentiates our brand and service as exceeding our competitors’.
