What is an HSE management system?

HSE stands for Health, Safety, Environment and Quality. An HSE Management System is a tool aimed at quality, occupational health and safety, and the environment to prevent or mitigate both human and economic losses arising from accidents, adverse occupational exposures, and environmental events. The goal of the HSE Management System is to ensure that the organisation complies with the relevant legislation and regulations in the field of occupational health and safety and the environment.

Why HSE Management?

The intent of HSE management is to prevent illness and injury by reducing the risk of unnecessary recordable and potential lawsuits with some degree of integration and systematization of health and safety 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.
