the three major challenges
The Three Major Challenges
  • 1. Identifying clear corporate goals
  • 2. Choosing the correct standards and models, and creating an integrated composite model
  • 3. Establishing strong lines of communication and effective mechanisms for decision-making
1 identifying clear corporate goals
1. Identifying Clear Corporate Goals
  • Neither environmental or OHS problems are well served with solely reactive processes
  • Linkages between EH&S goals and core business objectives are mandatory
  • Strengthening core business objectives with sound EH&S policy should be the focus
2 choosing standards
2. Choosing Standards
  • There are both integrated and individual standards suitable for EHS program development
  • Industry models are important for substantive foundations
  • Recognized international standards are crucial for external recognition
  • The ultimate system should combine these 2 with organizational needs
standards in oil gas
Standards in Oil & Gas
  • The API Model EHS is a good starting point, so are the CAPP programs
  • ISO 14001 should be used as one of the underlying models
  • BS 8800 is the most suitable & recognized OHS system standard
  • ISO 9000 can also be helpful
  • All of these share many common elements
integrating different standards
Integrating Different Standards
  • The key to integration is to find the commonalties among and between the standards
  • Re-organizing the various standards into a workable whole is the key
  • Administrative and management elements share many common characteristics
  • Substantive elements can simply be grouped into functional divisions
3 communication and authority
3. Communication and Authority
  • The third challenge is perhaps the source of the crucial difference between effective and superficial systems
  • Top-down communications are just as important as bottom-up reporting
  • Employee buy-in will not be accomplished without delegation of responsibility
  • Continual improvement demands this
authority and responsibility
Authority and Responsibility
  • Adherence to procedures is not enough
  • Real responsibility must be granted for effective management
  • Action plans require participation throughout the organization
  • Simple ideas are more likely to be implemented
steps in system development
Steps in System Development
  • 1. Approve goals and objectives
  • 2. Grant authority and establish clear reporting structures
  • 3. Use existing “best practices” as a starting point
  • 4. Develop both top AND bottom features first: high level system functions AND strengthened existing operating procedures

Let us Help You
  • We have proven ideas to help put these concepts into practice
  • We do not believe that outside structures should impede internal processes
  • We focus our efforts on capacity-building, not the traditional consulting model
