FOREWORD TO THIRD EDITION
It is the organization’s view that effective SHE performance is the foundation upon which all other business priorities are based. An emphasis shall always be placed on the SHE issues associated with any activity which is to be undertaken. It shall be clear that operating costs, production requirements, product quality and other priorities shall not be allowed to compromise SHE performance. The Third Edition of the manual supersedes the Second Edition. This Third Edition has been issued following consultation and discussions across the organization. During the review process, the objective has been to ensure that this manual continues to build upon existing good practices and learning from previous experiences. A number of key changes are highlighted below: • • • • • • • • • Updating has been undertaken to reflect the latest organisational changes (November 2009) together with the related modified reporting requirements. In terms of SHE management system structures, the Corporate SHE Committee and the SHE Management Framework appear for the first time.

The Petroplus triangle which shows how Operational excellence can only be based on the establishment of a firm foundation of SHE excellence is included in the Introduction. In order to improve leadership and governance of SHE processes, there is now a requirement for each site to appoint a member of their management team to be responsible for each standard within this manual. There has been an increase in the focus on process safety which has been reflected in a number of modified standards. A new standard on “SHE risk management” has been created to ensure that systems are in place to identify, assess and appropriately mitigate SHE risks. There is a more detailed standard highlighting expectations with regards to monitoring SHE Performance across the organization which includes auditing processes. A more detailed standard setting the expectations of investigation and follow-up of SHE incidents has been developed to ensure that root causes are more effectively identified and evaluated so as to prevent recurrent incidents.

THE SHE MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK
The SHE Management Framework defines roles and responsibilities of the corporate and functional organizations to help Petroplus drive towards “Zero Harm”. The corporate organization defines and communicates requirements in relation to vision, principles and SHE Policy and standards for managing the safety, health and environmental risks associated with our business activities. The Petroplus entities implement and incorporate the corporate requirements into their business activities.
Petroplus Board Executive Committee Corporate SHE
Corporate function will define and communicate SHE requirements, including Corporate SHE Policy and Corporate SHE Management System containing clear non-negotiable SHE standards. This will require sufficient resourcing, communication and setting of corporate key performance indicators.

LEADERSHIP Senior managers and supervisors must lead by example and demonstrate behaviours that will drive continual improvement in SHE performance. Managers and supervisors must set high standards for SHE, actively engage with the workforce, and identify and correct unsafe behaviors or situations. All unsafe practices and incidents will be investigated to understand what happened and why. All necessary steps will be taken to prevent a recurrence and learning shall be communicated to ensure that all Petroplus entities benefit from the outcomes of these investigations. Managers and supervisors at all levels in the organization have a responsibility to abide by the principles as defined by the standards. They must be embraced and embedded into the organization and, as leaders, managers and supervisors must pursue the development of a safety culture which reflects our vision and principles. We believe that everybody should understand their SHE responsibilities and clear accountabilities should be established.

2.3

SHE POLICY The Petroplus Corporate SHE Policy defines the organization’s SHE strategy and corporate governance structure for managing SHE risks within the company.

2.4

SHE STANDARDS A set of common mandatory standards have been developed that are incorporated into the Corporate SHE Management System Manual. Functional line managers at all levels have the responsibility of implementing and maintaining the standards. The standards form the basis for the development, improvement and application of comprehensive, integrated SHE Management systems throughout all operations. The standards have been developed from pre-existing Petroplus standards and industry recognised good practice. These standards principally identify duties to have systems to ensure safe and environmentally responsible management of activities, in certain specific areas of SHE risk. There must be both: i) systems in place and ii) effective compliance with those systems, in order to satisfy this requirement. In a number of areas of SHE risk, these requirements are specified in detail as a result of: a) b) c) A need for uniform practices across Petroplus. A need to emphasise certain issues which might give rise to a long term corporate business risk. An understanding that in certain areas, compliance with government regulations may not be sufficient to deliver the level of performance and liability limitation which the Company requires.

The SHE Standards are to be found in Part 2 of this manual.

2.5

LOCAL SHE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS The SHE standards are implemented via local SHE Management systems which define the arrangements in place for managing SHE risks. The SHE Management systems need to incorporate local legal requirements and also take into account good management practice.

AND PROCESS DESIGN SUMMARY OF STANDARD There shall be formal systems for the management of projects and the design of all new facilities. Appropriate post-commissioning checks to review whether the project has been implemented safely and with low environmental impact and also whether the project has had any unforeseen impacts on other activities such as operations or maintenance. local codes and regulations. BUILDINGS.RDSHE 7 – NEW PLANT. buildings. where instrumented protection changes or additions are part of the project Design review of the as built project The depth and breadth of the relevant risk assessments and hazard studies will be determined by the nature of the project. this study may conclude that further SHE assessments are not required. Commissioning procedures and checklists including formal acceptance of the project from the commissioning Manager by the operations team. including: a) A pre-sanction SHE assessment for inclusion with the expenditure proposal. c) d) e) Appropriate pre-commissioning checks. • An assessment of the SHE implications of a project shall be conducted. A Commissioning Manager shall be appointed who will be responsible and accountable for the commissioning of a project including all SHE aspects. in accordance with IEC 61511. 7. Principles to be followed • A Project Manager shall be appointed who will be responsible and accountable for the implementation of a project from inception to completion of commissioning. Studies shall be carried out in order to eliminate or reduce risks to “as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP)”. In exceptional circumstances. but not be limited to: • • • Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) studies where changes to the process or its control are involved Safety Integrity Level (SIL) assessments. EQUIPMENT. equipment and processes. Design and construction shall be in accordance with relevant engineering guidelines. These will need to be systematic and should include. plants. More detailed SHE studies as the detailed design progresses after sanction. including all SHE aspects. b) .1 SHE ASPECTS OF PROJECTS Duty Site Managers shall ensure that SHE risks are fully considered and addressed at all stages in the management of projects.

No significant changes in population. fire or release of toxic material. operating instructions written and operating staff trained in the use of newly installed equipment. Risk assessments must be carried out by competent personnel who have received appropriate training. Identified unacceptable risks have to be eliminated. It is a key principle that projects which interact with and/or entail modifications to existing plant should not compromise the SHE standards of the plant concerned. A Project SHE Dossier should be assembled for a project. 7. Principles to be followed Arrangements shall take into account the hazards and risks to buildings and those persons within such buildings who are associated with both the existing activities or any proposed new activity.2 LOCATION AND USE OF BUILDINGS Duty Site Managers shall ensure that management responsibilities and arrangements are in place for authorising changes in population and the location and use of buildings.Any significant departure from the above five processes should be authorised by the Site Engineering Manager or equivalent. then these residual risks should be recorded. or plant on the site should take place without formal risk assessment and written approval from the Site Manager. Prior to the use and location of temporary buildings a formal study must take place to ensure that acceptable protection is provided to the occupants from an identified explosion. including temporary accommodation. Where any significant hazards to people or the environment remain. . This risk assessment should take the form of a formal occupied buildings study. which includes a record of all Hazard Studies and the Environmental Impact Statement together with other relevant SHE data. wherever this is reasonably practicable. The master Project SHE Dossier should be filed by the Project Manager for future reference and review The Project Manager must ensure that the changes made by the project have been explained. or minimised. Developments and development proposals external to the site are required to be monitored so that appropriate action can be taken to minimise impact on existing and proposed refinery activities. land use.

Any material change to manning levels on the plants • • • • . A management of change (MOC) system helps ensure that changes do not inadvertently introduce new hazards or unknowingly increase the risk of existing hazards. steam or piped services. whether temporary or permanent. or which could affect the control or integrity of the plant or storage facility in any foreseeable transient or steady running situation. corridors.1 THE DEFINITION OF “PLANT CHANGE” OR “MODIFICATION” Duty To ensure that when a modification is made the risk of a process safety incident is not increased Site Managers shall ensure that all personnel are aware of what constitutes a plant change or modification and also of the need to carry out risk assessments on plant changes or modifications. They shall further ensure that personnel are aware that authorisation is required from Site managers with authority before any plant change is implemented. Any alteration or change in specification. Necessary risk assessments using the corporate risk assessment matrix shall be carried out. to plant hardware or a component there of. Any change to buildings. Shift Managers and all technical and managerial staff are trained in the use of the site plant change or modification system. Shift Supervisors. In addition. appropriate design considerations made. There shall be arrangements in place to ensure that both permanent and temporary change is managed in such a way that it does not compromise SHE. including the removal or addition of equipment. The introduction of new substances into part of the process or plant equipment.

In particular. they will be able to decide if implementation of the Crisis Management Plan is appropriate. as a priority. Site Managers shall ensure that procedures exist to manage such “Major Incidents”. each one of which will be managed by a named individual: • “Operational” – The Incident Controller at the location of the incident manages the direct response to the incident itself. pool fire and tank seal roof fire. . 14. b) Restoration and recovery exercises shall be included on a periodic basis to ensure that this phase of incident management is covered. This might apply as a result of an inability to bring the incident under control within a limited timescale or because the implications or results are significant and require communication. Such procedures shall include. reporting of the incident to corporate Petroplus management immediately following the decision to declare a Major Incident.Principles a) Emergency exercises should be carried out regularly and should be based on incident scenarios identified in pre-incident plans. c) Reviews of exercises or practices shall be published and. • • CORP-SHE-001 “Major Incident Response Procedure” The Emergency Contact list These documents are to be found on Sharepoint under the SHE Portal. b) Petroplus recognises three levels of response to incidents.

1. With respect to Major Incidents. In the event of a major oil spill. it is more likely that pro-active briefings will be necessary with the local population and media. Requirements in the event of media briefings are referred to above in paragraph 14. due to the severe implications of a Major Incident. This company has global reach and a capability to provide expert assistance around the clock. For new plant. Any briefing should always have the approval of the SRM. communication from the site shall be as required by the Crisis Management Team. Following the initial response to the Major Incident an investigation team shall be established using the guidance contained within CORP–SHE–002 “Investigation of Serious Incidents”. . the strategic aspects of the incident would be managed by a Crisis Management Team (CMT) comprised of senior managers from the Company. In such cases. In such an eventuality. further escalation to “Company Crisis” would be possible on the authorisation of an Executive Committee member. In order to provide 24/7 cover. Arrangements must be made to support such briefings. b) Fire Protection Appropriate separation distances should be provided and maintained between potential sources of fire and equipment or facilities that could be affected. above. or other high profile shipping incident. the fire assessment could be carried out as part of the Hazard Studies. Site Main Controllers should be trained to give public statements and have achieved the necessary standard of competence. the Shipping Manager and Corporate SHE Manager have access to Oil Spill Response Ltd (OSRL). of which Petroplus is a shareholder. together with the appropriate means of handling such materials so that fire can be avoided. the following topics should be considered under the fire hazard assessment: a) Fire Prevention The fire and explosion hazards of materials used on site should be made known to those who work with them.6 FIRE SAFETY MANAGEMENT Duty Site Managers shall ensure that any assessments of the fire hazards associated with the site are carried out and periodically reviewed. Contact details are provided in CORP–SHE–001 and contact should be made through the above links with that company.2 i.g) Where deemed necessary. this is likely to require a minimum of 3 people at each site to be trained.

1. In the event that SHE risks defined by the corporate risk assessment matrix as “serious” are identified.RDSHE 15 – SHE RISK MANAGEMENT SUMMARY OF STANDARD Risk management is the active process of identifying. . Site Managers shall ensure written risk assessments are seen as a means of demonstrating that appropriate consideration has been given to the management of risks. Such demonstration is a vital aspect of our licence to operate and written risk assessments shall be produced for the most serious risks. Site Managers shall ensure risk assessments can vary in complexity from a simple mental risk assessment to formal studies such as HAZOP and Quantified Risk Assessment. When these residual risks are significant. processes and personnel. The type of risk assessment required will depend on the risk being assessed. where appropriate the site shall document the basis for continued operation. Site Managers shall ensure all personnel. an authority approval sign-off shall be in place which accepts the remaining risk. Principles to be followed: All sites shall establish and maintain systems for the identification of SHE risks.1 SHE RISK MANAGEMENT Duty Site Managers shall ensure that SHE risks are identified. Plans must be in place to reduce these risks to an acceptable level in a timely manner. both before and during the work. Risk assessment processes shall be carried out on routine and non-routine activities and before changes to operations. assessing. All SHE risk management processes shall be developed in consultation with competent persons and applied using a consistent approach and documented in a systematic way. are responsible for undertaking risk assessment on their activities. assessed and appropriately mitigated. the assessment of these risks and the implementation of appropriate control measures to ensure that remaining risk is reduced to a tolerable level. communicating and managing the risks facing our organisation to ensure that the company meets its objectives. including contractors. The risk analysis shall define the residual risks which remain after the control measures have been put in place.

These methods shall be formally developed. installations.2 CORPORATE RISK MATRIX Duty Site Managers and their management teams shall ensure that hazards are risk assessed using the corporate risk assessment matrix (CRAM). competency and training requirements. . Guidance for the use of the CRAM is contained within CORP-SHE-003. The results of SHE risk assessment processes should be considered when establishing awareness. SHE risk assessment processes shall consider routine and non-routine activities. All sites shall ensure that the results of the SHE risk assessment processes are fully communicated to all relevant persons. implemented and maintained by competent persons and shall include the prioritisation and classification of risks to determine the level of significance. work organisation. commissioning and operation of the workplace and human behaviour as appropriate. procedures.Sites shall ensure methods used for identification of SHE risks and their assessments are appropriate to the nature and extent of the task. contractors. planned and unplanned changes. Where work activities are involved this shall be before the start of the activity. all equipment and facilities. changes to products. The hierarchy of control should be used to reduce the risk to tolerable levels. the design. 1. visitors and local communities and neighbouring businesses should also form part of the overall SHE risk assessment process.

as needed. may or may not have been sufficiently investigated to prevent the current incident. Principles to be followed The minimum level of investigation carried out following an incident should be in accordance with IMPACT system requirements. All investigations should be recorded on the IMPACT system. to prevent a similar occurrence. Where it is established that a repeat incident has occurred. . Investigations should identify and prioritise corrective and preventative actions to reduce or eliminate the risk and recurrence of a similar incident. All sites shall ensure that competent management level employee(s) sign off the investigation process to demonstrate that an appropriate review and assessment has been undertaken as appropriate.RDSHE 16 – INCIDENT INVESTIGATION AND FOLLOW-UP SUMMARY OF STANDARD Arrangements for the investigation and follow-up of SHE incidents need to be in place to ensure that incidents are sufficiently investigated and to identify root causes of such incidents so that actions may be taken. Investigations should identify the contributing factors. A process for managing lessons learnt from SHE incidents is also an important part of preventing incidents from occurring on site. The root cause techniques used should take into consideration human factors by determining the reason for any intentional or unintentional human behaviour determined during the investigation process as being potentially contributing factors to the incident. Each Investigation lead should consult with the site’s Petroplus Attorney to ensure that legal defences are not compromised during initial and further internal and external investigation processes. Investigations should be conducted by competent persons who have received adequate training. a review of actions associated with previous events. Where appropriate following completion of an incident investigation the results of the root cause analysis undertaken shall be recorded in accordance with the Corporate Root Cause Verification Model in IMPACT. This should include any persons involved in the incident whenever possible.1 THE INVESTIGATION OF SHE INCIDENTS Duty Site Managers shall ensure that all incidents are investigated appropriately and in a timely manner following such incidents. and preventative action steps recommended from prior incidents. 16. immediate and root causes of the incident as a basis for recommendations to prevent recurrence.

16. See RDSHE 3 Communication. There should be procedures to investigate all complaints from members of the public and report back to the complainant on the outcome of the investigation. Each action identified should be reviewed against the appropriate standard in the Corporate SHE Management System Manual to identify any gaps in current management systems. This information shall be reported to management to assist in identifying and assessing the existing or proposed additional control measures. In the event of a significant incident or near miss work shall cease and shall only be allowed to continue once the necessary actions. A periodic review of the effectiveness of corrective and preventative actions shall be undertaken. have been undertaken to reduce the risk of recurrence. . such as ‘high learning events’ are communicated to the other sites within Petroplus. including re-evaluation of any relevant risk assessments. All recommended action steps are to be recorded on the IMPACT system and followed up until completed. There should also be a periodic review of control measures implemented to ensure that they remain effective and appropriate.16. there shall be systems in place to effectively communicate this information to all relevant personnel. Where an action has been identified that results in a change to existing systems or procedures. Principles to be followed Any corrective or preventative action identified during an investigation shall be thoroughly reviewed prior to implementation to ensure that the action is appropriate to the nature and extent of the hazards and associated risk. Work shall only be permitted to recommence following formal authorisation from appropriate level of management. All sites should use the IMPACT system to physically track action items to ensure that they have been adequately completed and implemented.2 THE MANAGEMENT OF CORRECTIVE ACTIONS FOLLOWING SHE INCIDENTS Duty Site Managers shall ensure that corrective and preventative actions are identified and implemented following an incident investigation. such as lessons learned that have been communicated from Corporate SHE and other Petroplus sites are acted upon accordingly. Each site should have mechanisms in place to ensure that important SHE information.3 THE COMMUNICATION OF SHE INCIDENTS Duty Each site should ensure that important SHE information. A record should be kept of actions taken to prevent recurrence of the condition that caused the complaint. All relevant information following an incident investigation will be gathered and analysed to identify lessons learned and to identify major trends on a periodic basis.
