PROTECTION OF THE HUMAN HEALTH, ENVIRONMENT, SAFETY AND SECURITY (HESS)
HESS is one of the foundations of all of our business activities. Our internal and external stakeholders - from employees, leaders and contract partners to our customers and our communities – expect and demand that we excel in protection of human health, environment, safety and security. Excellence in HESS requires commitment, a supportive culture, and systems and processes that enable everyone working within and alongside YFCO to meet this expectation. The main elements of our HESS programs are explained in more detail below.
- Corrective Maintenance
- Application Modernization
- Application Enhancement
- Migration Services
Culture is a critical factor within any organization. Without the right culture, no organization can achieve its goals and ambitions, even with excellent processes and systems. That is why YFCO strives to promote a culture where HESS excellence is owned, valued and inherent in everything we do, so that HESS is a core value for everyone involved. YFCO is expected to reinforce its commitment to an incident-free workplace by ensuring that every activity is subject to strict HESS risk management principles and procedures, conducted with the extreme care and compliance even if this implies more time and effort.
YFCO is committed to maintaining the highest Environment, Health, Safety & Security (HESS) standards throughout the organization. To inspire this mindset in everyone who works for or with YFCO. In keeping with this ambition, we also believe in prompt, full and transparent reporting of any non-compliance with our requirements and obligations, which drives our efforts and journey towards HESS improvement.
HESS MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Clear and comprehensive HESS risk management systems are necessary to ensure that everyone understands and consistently implements the actions and procedures necessary to achieve HESS excellence. To this end, YFCO is developing healthy environmental, safety and security management system for all YFCO production and commercial facilities and operations. The foundation and core principles of HESSMS are to:
- Provide safe, stable, and compliant operation
- Minimize environmental impact
- Go beyond compliance
- Identify and appropriately manage risks
- Ensure hard, perfect security and crisis management systems
- Guarantee good relationships with the communities in which we operate
YFCO Management reviews of HESS performance are conducted periodically by senior leaders and across all levels of the organization and are key to program success for both compliance and performance. The following items, amongst others, are reviewed periodically:
- Be consistent with accountability.
- Be willing to proclaim that something needs to be done
- Make positive choices or decisions to act.
- Think deeply about the consequences of each choice.
- Set high expectations for yourself and your team.
- Conduct a meeting to follow up actions and results.
- Completion of corrective actions.
