Work for an Industry Leader


At Canadian Natural we believe our employees are the key to unlocking asset potential. As one of the largest independent crude oil and natural gas producers in the world, our balanced mix of natural gas, light oil, heavy oil, in situ oil sands production and oil sands mining creates opportunity for people who want to be part of a challenging and competitive industry. Join our team as we continue to create value through innovation by "doing it right" with fun and integrity in North America, the North Sea, and Offshore Africa.

Health and Safety

Safety is a core value at Canadian Natural and is paramount in all our activities. Our goal is No harm to people and No safety incidents. We conduct our operations in a way that will protect the health and safety of employees, contractors, the public and the environment.

Our commitment to safety starts at the top of our organization with Canadian Natural's management leadership. To support our main goals, our Safety and Asset Integrity Department integrates occupational safety, asset integrity and process safety.

We believe it is important to do it right. To provide a safe and accident-free workplace, we make safety a fundamental part of the full lifecycle of work. We are committed to implementing a high standard of health and safety through continuous improvement. 

Our Safety Teams work with employees and contractors to identify hazards and develop safe work procedures. We believe everyone is responsible for their own and other people's safety. We can all contribute to a safer work place by conducting our work in a safe manner and ensuring that the people we work with and the communities we operate in are also safe. 

Safety awareness and communications are crucial in maintaining our strong safety culture. Field employees and management training are part of our strategy to increase safety and awareness and minimize risks and injuries.

To reach high standards of environmental performance and meet regulatory compliance, we adhere to the principles of continuous improvement, efficient operations and technological innovation.

Our Environmental team works together with Management and all our operating divisions to ensure environmental stewardship is factored into our decision making process. In 2010, we initiated an Environmental Excellence program to enhance our environmental performance, improve communications and awareness and manage potential impacts to water, air and land. We are seeing positive and improved results across our operations.

Our Environmental Excellence initiative focuses on working together to proactively manage our liabilities, reclaim our footprint, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, protect biodiversity and use water efficiently. It is also important to promote an environmental culture. We foster a culture of environmental awareness where everyone has a vital role to play in identifying and mitigating environmental impacts from our operations. We emphasize environmental awareness through employee training, due diligence and communications on environmental priorities.
