We continue to implement our Accommodation and Welfare Guide, published in 2014, which provides guidance on the living conditions for employees and contractors who work away from home. This helps to establish a consistent standard for people who build our facilities around the world.

We also make sure that any employee or contractor working for Shell has access to medical expertise within four hours from where they work – no matter how remote their work location may be. This is possible using advanced telemedicine technology. The technology help doctors better diagnose illness and injuries in the field by bringing specialist medical expertise, through video connection, to some of the remote places where we have operations. It is reducing the need to evacuate people from these locations, while saving lives.
