BOC undertakes regular 'PROSPER' audits at all of its main production sites, which reviews the site energy efficiency as well as reliability and safety issues. PROSPER is an acronym for Prioritised Review of Operations, Safety, Productivity, Efficiency and Reliability.
Risks that our plants might pose to employees and companies or people in the vicinity must be systematically identified and evaluated. Our management system, aims to
- identify the maximum potential hazards and manage them effectively
- measure risks and introduce controls that minimise these risks as far as possible
Monitoring the maximum potential hazards encompasses all key aspects of occupational health and safety. As a minimum requirement, all BOC locations that store or process hazardous substances (including pipeline transport) must possess a valid licence awarded following an internal audit. There are three categories of licences with category 1 representing the greatest hazard potential.
