Our People

Refining NZ employs a team of around 300, supported by strong relationships with local contracting companies.

We are committed to providing a safe working environment and strong learning culture to help get our people home safely every day, and to reach their full potential.

Keeping our people safe

We are continually striving to deliver a world-class health and safety performance in order to keep and people and our refinery safe. Our performance is underpinned by our people – who hold safety and wellbeing as a core value, are passionate about staying safe and intervene to protect their workmates.

We support our people with training, world-class health and safety management systems, a dedicated Health, Safety and Environmental team, Emergency Services team (industrial fire brigade), security team, and on-site occupational health centre.

Our commitment to health and safety is set out in our company policy.

As a Major Hazard Facility we are accountable for ensuring the processes we follow and the things we do are safe.  This is outlined in our Safety Case.

Embedding high performance

We are focused on embedding a high-performance workplace culture built around diversity of outlook and experience. Fostering diversity  – through our values and behaviours as well as training and development – supports innovation, better decision making and results.

Our culture is supported by set of values we can all work to.
