Shell is Britain’s highest ever earning company, announcing profits of £13.9b, but the oil giant is being accused by its workforce of “a severe lack of commitment to safety”.

One Royal Dutch Shell insider alleges that critical safety systems on one platform aren’t working properly and the safety culture at Shell has shifted from ‘doing the right thing’ to ‘mend and make do’.

The company has inisted the claims are unfounded and safety is its top priority.
