HSE Management System

Our HSE Management System (HSEMS) outlines the structured approach necessary for all our operations to manage HSE risks and drive HSE improvement in a consistent and systematic manner. Each element defines the requirements of all employees and stakeholders to achieve the outcome in a clear and comprehensive manner. Our HSE Management System is modeled after OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 standards. This approach helps us realize the HSE aspects of our vision, mission and values.



Golden Safety Rules

L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering has in place 15 mandatory Golden Safety Rules, which are followed by all the employees and contractors. These rules are formulated based on the mapping of high-risk activities. The rules set out simple and clear “Do’s” and “Don’ts” covering activities with high risk and are deemed to be safety-critical and with zero tolerance for any deviation. Strict compliance with these rules is ensured through the management system, not just for the employees but also for the contract workforce.


Safety Innovation School

L&T Hydrocarbon Engineering's Safety Innovation School provides Occupational Health and Safety training to our employees and contractors. SIS training programmes are different from formal theoretical safety training as the focus is on experiential learning, i.e. learning by doing & experiencing.
