The safety of our employees and contractors is an essential part in the way we do business.

The complexity of the refining industry involves a higher level of risk to health, safety and environment. Rompetrol continually evaluates its health and safety principles and procedures throughout all its operations to ensure that they are according to the best standards in the industry. We strive to improve our results by applying a uniform occupational health and safety policy, both within the Group entities and in relation to our subcontractors.

Our policies, procedures and practices support our commitments to human rights observance and create opportunities for each and every employee to be productive and secure and to develop professionally, regardless of gender, nationality, age or other factors.
