QHSE MS Overview
Element 1 Management Commitment
Managers at all levels of the organization are responsible for identifying and managing the risks associated with the health and safety of our employees, the impact of our businesses on the natural environment and the protection of the Company’s tangible and intangible assets.
Element 2 Communications
In order to evaluate and manage risk, there must be an effective communications system to ensure relevant and up-to-date information is circulated to the worksite and throughout the organization
Element 3 Employee Recruitment, Training, & Development
To continually improve our business, the right people must be selected, recruited, trained, developed and retained.
Element 4 Hazard & Risk Management
Risk is inherent in everything we do. We believe risks can be mitigated through the consistent application of sound management strategies.
Element 5 Emergency Planning, Preparedness, & Response
To minimize the consequences of an emergency or crisis, response efforts must be organized, planned, and executed in an effective manner.
Element 6 Incident Management
Planned post incident management strategies serve to mitigate the negative aspect of incidents. Learning from events and taking appropriate actions result in improved prevention strategies and overall QHSE performance.
Element 7 Evaluation & System Compliance
Periodic review and measurement of existing QHSE systems and compliance with those systems is critical in identifying unmanaged risks. The effectiveness of the management system is determined by measuring a combination of leading and lagging indicators.
