Health & Safety Management System
Our H&S Framework defines our approach to safety and keeps safety central to all aspects of our business. There are four elements to the Framework as described below.
1. H&S DOCUMENTATION
Our H&S actions and expectations are established through several standards and procedures including but not limited to:
- Contractor H&S Management Standard
- Incident Management Standard
- Industrial Hygiene Standard
- Management of Change Standard
- Occupational Health Management Standard
- Process Hazard Analysis Standard
- Process Safety Management Standard
- Risk Management Standard
Our standards are designed to fulfill regulatory requirements for both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA).
2. TRAINING AND COMPETENCY
Safety training is essential to protect the well-being of our employees. In addition to the enterprise-wide required safety training, employees working on-site receive additional site-specific training to develop workplace safety competency. We train employees to make them aware of our occupational health tools and services, such as first-aid kits and tips for how to maintain good general health at work. Select employees trained in hazard recognition are responsible for surveying our operations for potential safety hazards, reporting those identified, and developing a solution with management.
3. GOVERNANCE AND ASSURANCE
Cheniere’s assurance process helps us assess our safety performance and identify opportunities to improve H&S processes and programs. We conduct site-based assessments, functional verifications, and audits, and request employee feedback to determine program effectiveness. Management reviews our assessments annually and recommends corrective actions.
4. CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
Continuous improvement is embedded in every aspect of H&S at Cheniere. We continuously seek ways to improve our programs and leverage lessons learned, strengthen our safety culture, and increase employee engagement as we work toward leading safety performance.
