HSE System Overview

The philosophy of the HSE Management System is that policy is stated, standards determine the level of performance required to realize the policy requirements, and local procedures/work instructions and training of staff are put in place to enable compliance with standards. The standards are mandatory and generic, whereas the procedures are optional and specific to the operations.

The HSE Steering Committee, comprising of the Directors, General Managers and Department Heads of EKL is responsible for over viewing the implementation of the HSE Management System in the organization and has the following remit:

  • Provide policies, standards and guidance for their implementation
  • Establish performance objectives for the Company and monitor progress for their implementation.
  • Provide technical and administrative support when needed for the effective attainment of these objectives.
  • Ensure development/implementation of procedures for compliance with legislative requirements and National Environment Quality Standards (NEQS).
