The Challenge

Chevron New Zealand is the parent company that delivers the Caltex brand in New Zealand.

Globally, Chevron is committed to zero harm on any Caltex sites. Contractor performance is a key management challenge for Chevron and they recognised the need to improve their contractor management system in New Zealand.

ECL Group Solution

ECL Group has worked closely with Chevron New Zealand to deliver training programmes both in-house and on Caltex sites to improve health and safety standards.

A key strategy to reduce subcontractors has resulted in the ECL Group providing a wider range of services to Chevron New Zealand, and a single point of accountability.


Chevron New Zealand now has a significantly improved health and safety system and culture. Substantial lowering of incidents has been achieved, reflecting a safer work environment on Caltex commercial and retail sites.
