Well-Safe Solutions offers a specialist well abandonment service that allows operators to meet the challenges and regulatory requirements around decommissioning. It offers the complete plug and abandonment (P&A) capability under one roof, from front-end engineering and design through to project execution. The company first signed the Armed Forces Covenant on 11 October 2023. By signing the Covenant, it became one of the 11,500+ organisations to pledge support to the Armed Forces community. 

Its commitment to honouring the Covenant includes pledges to: 

  • Promote the fact it is an Armed Forces-friendly organisation.
  • Support the employment of Veterans and Service leavers.
  • Support employees who are members of the Reserve Forces; granting additional paid/unpaid leave for training; supporting mobilisations and deployment; encourage members of staff to become Reservists.
  • Support Armed Forces charities.

Well-Safe Solutions also received the ERS Bronze Award. The ERS Awards encourage employers to support Defence and inspire others to do the same. The prestigious Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards are for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to Defence and the Armed Forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

Samantha said: “Signing the Armed Forces Covenant and receiving ERS Bronze means a great deal to Well-Safe Solutions.

“Attracting and retaining key talent from outwith the decommissioning sector is crucial to our success, as diversity of experience and skillsets enables us to unlock safer, smarter and more efficient ways of working.

“Well-Safe Solutions greatly appreciates the resilience, experience and comprehensive training each member of the Armed Forces exhibits.”
