Challenges for HSE ambitious corporates
Operational Excellence in Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) is no longer a process solely driven by public opinion and government policy. More and more industrial corporates see that sustainable production is the only way forward in society and at this moment in time a means to positively distinguish yourself as an organization.
But how to combine an ambition for Zero Incidents with challenging production targets and necessary cost reductions. Over the years we collected plenty of evidence to show that operational excellence in production and in HSE can go hand in hand: improved HSE performance helps to optimize processes, save money, save lives and limit damage to the environment. In short, it leads to achievements you can be proud of.
In practice, many HSE processes are not only related to primary processes, but also to one another. However, a lack of transparency means that the various people involved often operate within the confines of their own individual disciplines.
