Ebook: HSE

Overview

Risk management programs are usually part of a facility's Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) program. (Some companies use the initials in a different order, i.e., SHE, HES, or EHS. The choice is not important. In the United Kingdom, the letters 'HSE' generally refer to the regulatory agency the Health and Safety Executive.)

Although Health, Safety and Environmental issues are often grouped together, and although HSE activities are often directed by a single manager, the three topics are actually quite distinct from one another. Table 1 shows who or what is covered by each of the elements of HSE, and outlines the geographical scope and time line for each of those elements.
