0 Management Summary and Introduction

0.1 Objectives of the HSE MS
The objectives of the NNPC Health, Safety and Environment Management System (HSE MS) are:

• To demonstrate the existence of a systematic HSE MS in place for NNPC designed to
ensure compliance with applicable legislation and relevant NNPC policies within a
single document;
• To achieve continuous HSE performance improvement;
• To show that Environmental, Safety and Occupational Health hazards are evaluated
and managed in accordance with ISO 14001: 2004 and OHSAS 18001: 2007
requirements;
• To show that there are controls in place for identified hazards and effects;
• To demonstrate that all hazards which may be Low, Medium or High have been
identified and assessed with suitable control measures put in place to reduce the risk
to As Low as Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).


0.2 Introduction
This HSE MS covers all operations in NNPC’s, SBUs and CSUs.

The process of preparing the HSE MS included field visits, gap analysis, HAZID and HEMP
workshops of in-house stakeholders preceded by a kick off meeting held at NNPC Towers. The
workshops were held in the following order:
1. HAZID workshop on 3-4 August 2011 held in Abuja,
2. HEMP workshops on 17-18 August 2011 held in Abuja and,
3. HEMP workshop on 6-8 September 2011 in Port Harcourt.

Field visits were conducted per project schedule.

The guideline used for preparing this HSE MS is the E&P Forum Guidelines for the Development
and Application of Health, Safety and Environmental Management Systems.

NNPC recognizes that there are inherent risks associated with her operations and has therefore
subscribed to the principle of risk acceptance, which is the point at which no more can be done
to reduce risk. NNPC therefore subscribes to reducing risks to the principle of As Low AS
Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).

The risk acceptance criteria used in this Management System is as per industry practice adopted
from E & P companies operating in the same region and environment. This is described in
Section 4 of this document.

The hazard register is located in Appendix 8 of this document.

This HSE MS demonstrates that the objectives stated above have been adequately assessed.

0.2.1 Custodian
The HSE MS custodian is responsible for maintaining the HSE MS document, he/she ensures
that revisions and updates to the document are done when needed and ensures the document
is controlled and available to all NNPC staff.

0.2.2 Review
The HSE MS shall be reviewed under the following conditions:
• Changes in operations and organizational structure
• Audit conducted gives rise to remedial works
• Significant changes to the HSE MS or facility
• Introduction of a new activity not already considered

A review of the entire HSE MS will be conducted every three (3) years. As a minimum the
contents of the HSE MS will be reviewed for accuracy, the revised document will be re-issued.

0.2.3 HSE MS Sections
The HSE MS has seven (7) sections; they are briefly described below and are based on the E&P
Forum Guidelines for the Development and Application of Health, Safety and Environmental
Management Systems Report No. 6.36/210.

The diagram and table shows the key elements needed to effectively manage HSE in NNPC’s
operations.

A culture of proactive HSE management will be promoted if staff and contractors believe senior
management to be driving sound HSE performance. This belief is developed and enhanced by
visible leadership that starts at senior management level and cascades down to supervisor level
which includes leading by example.

Proactive target setting that involves consultation with staff and contractors and is driven by
individual and team performance appraisal further enhances this. Informed involvement is
through personally overseeing the development of the HSE Management System, reviewing
implementation at site level and in allocating appropriate resources to meet targets.

This chapter addresses the top-down commitment and management actions necessary for the
success of NNPC's HSE MS implementation.

All top Management, i.e. Managing Directors or Chief Executives of NNPC and it's subsidiary
Companies shall provide strong and visible leadership to promote a culture in which all
employees share a commitment to HSE. They shall do this through setting a personal example,
demonstrating commitment to implementing the HSE-MS, communicating the HSE expectations
with employees, discussing and reviewing progress against specific HSE targets and
demonstrating personal participation in HSE activities, structured HSE meetings and site visits
which is one of the critical success factors for ensuring that Policy objectives are met.
Top/Senior management and supervisors shall be regarded as fully committed to HSE by all staff
and contractors. They are to be seen as providing a leading role towards constant improvement
through leadership and action planning. They shall show informed involvement in all HSE issues,
to demonstrate leadership and commitment

SECTION 4

Evaluation and Risk Management

4.1 Identification of Hazards and Effects
(ISO14001: 2004 Clause 4.3.1, OHSAS18001: 2007 Clause 4.3.1)

The scope of the Hazard identification and hazards and effects management process includes all
NNPC’s activities, over which NNPC has control. The Hazard register contains an assessment of
all hazards identified from the activities of NNPC operations.

Identification of hazards begins from planning to abandonment, including potential hazards
linked to past activities. Environmental Impact Assessments/Environmental Audits are conducted
for projects. Reports of the audits are available in the SBUs/CSUs.

NNPC has a procedure that systematically identifies and evaluates hazards and their effects
arising from its activities, with necessary control/recovery measures.

The procedure/process considers:
• Routine and non-routine activities,
• Activities of individuals with access to the workplace (including contractors and
visitors),
• Identified hazards from outside the workplace that may adversely affect the health
and safety of people within the workplace,
• Hazards created in the workplace area by work-related activities under the control of
NNPC,
• Previous assessments conducted – EIA, HRA etc.
• Infrastructure, equipment and materials in the workplace
• Changes or proposed changes in NNPC – activities or materials
• Changes to the HSE MS
• Applicable legislations relating to risk assessment and implementation of necessary
controls
• Ergonomics, work organization
• Company standards and policies, Exploration and Production companies best practices
and guidelines
• Local and International standards

Preventive, mitigation and recovery measures are put in place to eliminate or reduce risk to As
Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).

NNPC staffs were fully involved in the hazard identification process, a workshop was held on the
3-4 of August 2011 at Rockview Hotel, Abuja. The Hazard and Effects workshop was held on the
17-18 August 2011 at NNPC Towers, Abuja. A second Hazard and Effects workshop was held on
the 6-8 September 2011 at the Arts in Science Head Office located in Port Harcourt.

The list of participants who attended the workshops are located in Appendix 4. The Hazard list
and Hazards and Effects Register, are located in Appendix 7 and 8 respectively.
NNPC HSE Management System
This document if printed is not a controlled document Page 18 of 79

The steps used by NNPC for the HAZID and HEMP is seen in the figure below:


Figure 4: Principles of Hazard Identification


The principles of Identify, Evaluate, Control and Recover are the basis of Hazard Identification.
The final hazard list was reached using various methods; a pre-set checklist was used to identify
hazards, with new hazards added and non-applicable hazards removed during the process
through a process of brainstorming, discussion, analysis of NNPC’s operations with input from
experienced professionals using company information and relevant standards.

The output of the HAZID is a hazard register that defines the hazards associated with NNPC’s
activities; which will be used throughout the development and implementation of this
Management System, but also serves as a key planning tool in other business processes like
contract management, developing HSE MS or Cases for SBUs/CSUs.


4.2 Evaluation of Risk
(ISO14001: 2004 Clause 4.3.1, OHSAS18001: 2007 Clause 4.3.1)

NNPC has a Risk Assessment Matrix document that describes and defines the RAM, how to use
it with definitions of risk terminology used. The Risk Assessment Matrix (RAM) below is used to
qualitatively rank and assess identified hazards in NNPC.

The RAM is a two dimensional graphical representation of risk as a product of potential
frequency of occurrence (likelihood) and potential consequence in terms of severity of impact.
Four exposure categories are used: People, Assets, Environment and Reputation in the
assessment, historical records (of similar operations) are used to estimate probability of
occurrence; a combination of the two gives a picture of the risk to manage.

NNPC has a procedure for identifying and evaluating risks and effects of identified hazards.

The identified hazards are assessed against effects to:
People (Occupational Health & Safety – Acute or Chronic)
Potential health effects to people include ergonomic factors, life style factors, biological,
psychological and physical effects, accidents and incidents. These have been assessed in line
with OHSAS18001: 2007.
Environment
This could be acute or chronic effect, emissions to water, air and land (controlled and
uncontrolled), noise, dust, generation of wastes from activities. These have been assessed in
line with ISO14001: 2004.
Assets (safety)
Deviations from normal operating parameters may lead to accidents, which can affect the
physical assets of the organization. For example fire, damaged equipment etc.
Company reputation.
Non-compliance to statutory provisions such as issues bordering on environmental non-
compliance can impact negatively on the company’s reputation.

The NNPC hazard checklist and register are located in Appendix 7 and 8 respectively.

4.3 Recording Hazards and Effects
(ISO14001: 2004 Clause 4.3.1; OHSAS18001: 2007 Clause 4.3.1.7)

NNPC has a procedure for documenting hazards and effects arising from its operations, outlining
measures to reduce them to ALARP.

The type of information recorded includes identification of hazards, assessment of risk
associated with identified hazards, control measures to be taken to reduce risk and
determination of competency requirements for implementing the controls.

The records kept include Hazards and Effects Register, Risk Register, Investigation, Inspection
and Audit Reports. The records can be found in each SBU/CSU.

A record of the identified Remedial Actions from the shortfall of the HSE MS are managed
independently of the HSE MS and tracked to close out by Group HSE.

4.3a Legal Requirements
(ISO14001: 2004 Clause 4.3.2; OHSAS18001: 2007 Clause 4.3.2)

The organization has a procedure for identifying and recording statutory requirements and
codes applicable to HSE aspects of its operations. The HSE department regularly reviews the
information. These requirements are considered in the development and implementation of her
Management System.

NNPC communicates this information to its staff through the HSE MS.

NNPC’s Group Safety and Environmental Protection Policy contain a commitment to complying
with applicable HSE rules and regulations relating to its operations.

NNPC adheres to applicable Nigerian and International legislations.

4.4 Objectives, Performance Criteria and Plan
(ISO14001: 2004 Clause 4.3.3, OHSAS18001: 2007 Clause 4.3.3)

NNPC has a procedure for developing HSE objectives and performance criteria in all SBUs/CSUs.
They are developed in view of company policy, strategic HSE objectives, HSE risks, legal
requirements, and operational and business needs.

HSE Objectives are reviewed yearly, to ensure they remain applicable and achievable. A HSE
Plan is developed in order to achieve set objectives.

NNPC’s HSE performance indicators are used to monitor progress in achieving its set objectives
and targets.

The HSE Objectives, performance criteria and plan are communicated to staff through email,
meetings and awareness sessions to relevant personnel.

4.5 Risk Reduction Measures
(ISO14001: 2004 Clause 4.4.6, OHSAS18001: 2007 Clause 4.3.1.6, 4.4.6)

The aim of risk reduction measures is to manage HSE risks in order to fulfill NNPC’S HSE policy
commitments, achieve its objectives, and comply with applicable legal requirements.
NNPC risk reduction philosophy, how it determines the efficacy of existing controls and if new
controls are needed is included in the procedure for identifying and assessing hazards. This
includes prevention, mitigation and emergency response measures to ALARP.

Identified risk reduction measures, have competent persons responsible for their maintenance
and implementation, there are operational procedures, which manage identified controls, which
are available in the SBUs and CSUs. Risk reduction measures are regularly tested and reviewed,
through a drill program. The results of the drills are recorded and reviewed with improvements
made as needed.

The hierarchy of controls is as follows:
• Elimination (e.g. use of lifting aids to eliminate manual lifting)
• Substitution (e.g. change of substance)
• Engineering controls (e.g. valves)
• Administrative controls (e.g. warning signs, procedures)
• Personal Protective Equipment (PPE e.g. hearing protection)

When applying risk reduction measures in NNPC consideration is given to the relative cost, risk
reduction benefits and reliability of the options available.
