Our values are quite simply how we do everything. They give us a point of connection every day and keep us focused on what makes this place, such a special place to work. The other really cool thing about the TIGER values, is that they have a long history in Health and Safety – which of course is super important to us as we operate a vital piece of national infrastructure.
Sometimes process safety is stylised as a tiger while personal safety is depicted as a Lion. Lions hunt in the open and can be seen, tigers sneak around in depths of the jungle and are very difficult to see. Both need to be respected but you will not see the Tiger coming. Process safety needs constant focus and we are really proud of how we hold this as a core part of how we operate.
Our people have a fundamental deep seated Pride in looking after assets of national importance. Our people take ownership in keeping the gas flowing, as the most important thing we do is to look after the people of Aotearoa by providing them with energy that is safe and reliable.
