The Baker Hughes HSE&S Management System (HSE&S MS) is an enterprise-wide framework that drives continual improvement in our HSE performance and legal compliance in our facilities and operations world-wide.
Our HSE&S MS comprises 15 elements and operational control procedures that detail the minimum standards for controlling safety and environmental risk in our operations. The MS documents are communicated to all employees.
Our HSE&S MS aligns with the requirements of ISO 14001, the Environmental Management System standard; OHSAS 18001, the Health and Safety Management System standard; and ISO 9001, the Quality Management System standard.
Many of our facilities around the world have gone a step further and obtained external certification of their management system according to these standards. At year-end 2012, 67 Baker Hughes facilities were certified to ISO 14001 (the environmental management system), and 20 facilities were certified to OHSAS 18001 (the occupational health and safety management system). These certifications represent operations in a number of regions and product lines.

To achieve greater efficiency, 20 chemical sites with ISO 14001 certification were successfully transferred to a multisite certification under a single certification body during 2012. The remaining sites will transition during 2013 and 2014.
