HSE-MS Manual
Our manual is the primary reference for BPC, Health, Safety and Environmental Management System (HSE-MS). It has been designed to make managers consider HSE in all aspects of their work, and therefore to achieve the companys published objectives. It can be used as a reference document for: Learning and understanding BPC systems Planning for HSE requirements of new projects Control of Hazards and Management of risk Activity Planning and Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) HSE audits Incident Reporting and Investigations. Increasing safety awareness for existing staff Competence setting Review and improvement of HSE systems.

All personnel, especially the senior managers and staff should make themselves familiar with the content and work hard to put the system into effect. The HSE-MS describes how HSE is managed in BPC, and includes how BPC manages its sub-contractors and suppliers. BPC system is designed to link with client and other HSE management systems, and BPC realizes the need for all the systems to work together to manage each separate project. Sub-contractors are expected to have their own HSE-MS, and BPC HSE-MS provides links to ensure that all companies on a contract can work together . If a sub-contractor has no HSE-MS, then BPC will manage that operation in the same way as its own. It is certain that projects can only be completed successfully if all companies work together.
