Operating Safely

Governance & Management Systems

The ConocoPhillips Health Safety and Environment (HSE) Policy is our foundational HSE document. A component of this policy, the HSE Management System Standard, provides corporate expectations for each business unit’s HSE management system and is the primary tool that our business units use to execute the contents and commitments contained within the company’s HSE policy. The HSE management system adheres to a continuous improvement life cycle and includes key elements such as risk assessment, incident and near miss reporting and investigation, on-site job safety analysis, HSE training, audits, and annual review and goal setting.

We maintain a multi-tiered risk based HSE audit program encompassing regulatory and management system compliance audits at both the corporate and business unit levels. Our program also includes external insurance risk assessments. We also commission independent, limited assurance audits of our corporate level processes for collating and reporting aggregated HSE data presented in ConocoPhillips’ Sustainability Report.
