HSE Management System
A comprehensive strategy for a safe and sustainable future with an integrated HSE management system
Why HSE Management?
The intent of HSE management is to prevent illness and injury by reducing the risks with integration and systematization of health, safety and environmental management practices. HSE management system trains employees, consolidates the risk assessment procedures, and determines Health & Safety incident reporting processes.
Standards in setting up an HSE management system
The basis of the HSE management system starts with ISO 9001 certification. ISO 9001 can be used by every type of organization, irrespective of its size. The goal is to improve business operations by ensuring that the customers consistently receive high-quality products and services.
ISO 14001 provides a tool for organizations to improve their environmental performance while complying with any applicable legislation. ComplianceQuest helps companies identify, analyze, monitor and mitigate the existing and potential hazards and risks by capturing and reporting on environmental audits and incidents anywhere, anytime. Just like ISO 9001, the new 14001 also focuses on the impact on economic performance and reputation, managing operational risk as well as environmental, safety and society outcomes.
OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45001, a new workplace health and safety standard, is a tool designed to allow organizations to adapt work health and safety management systems to their work efficiently. This will also help companies to automate their electronic reporting and OSHA incident recording.
What is an HSE policy?
Growth and sustainability depend on customer satisfaction and the quality of its economic performance. Businesses need an HSE policy that can help them improve employee safety and morale and should include the following components:
Staff involvement and empowerment at all organization levels
Monitoring of customers’ confidence and suppliers’ compliance
Laws, regulations, standards & other requirements compliance
Risk analysis & risk prevention
Continuous improvement in performances, cost reduction and quality work life
Best Practices for HSE Management
We will summarize the key elements of best practices in HSE management:
Management should have a clear understanding of the key H&S issues for their business and be continually developing their skills and knowledge. They should understand H&S policy and develop a strategy by setting standards, monitoring performance and internal control.
Culture, standards & values
Management should set the right tone at the top and establish an open culture across the organization with a high level of communication both internally and externally on H&S issues.
Management should drive the H&S agenda by understanding the risks and opportunities associated with H&S matters and any market pressures which might compromise the values and standards, and ultimately establish a strategy to respond.
Management should ensure that H&S risks are managed and controlled adequately and the existing internal control and audit structures should be reviewed by the audit committee.
Outstanding execution and solution coverage
We implemented this software where I work and have been overall happy with the outcome. After taking a day or two workings to learn the software, you’ll never want to go back to your old ways! There’s also a huge library of training videos provided with the subscription, and an easy to use ticket portal. Moving to CQ HSE was worth the effort and will pay for itself within the year, but what really matters is that we have a fully functional HSE software that can grow and evolve with the business. The mobile features and real-time data capture provides great accessibility to the HSE program for all levels of staff.
