HSEC GovernanceHSEC Governance

At BlueScope Steel, we know that our success as a company depends on how effectively and responsibly we work with our employees and the communities in which we operate to meet our health, safety, environment and community commitments.

The Health, Safety and Environment Committee (HSE Committee) is a Committee of the Board of Directors formed to assist the Board in fulfilling its oversight governance responsibilities in these important areas.

The Chairman of the HSE Committee is Ron McNeilly. Due to the importance of health, safety and the environment to BlueScope Steel, all Directors are members of the HSE Committee. The HSE Committee meets regularly.

BlueScope Steel's Health, Safety, Environment and Community (HSEC) Policy outlines the Company's goals and our actions to achieve its goals in these areas.

The Policy commits BlueScope Steel to continual improvement in our performance. We aspire to zero harm to our people. We are committed to the efficient use of resources, reducing and preventing pollution, and product stewardship. We strive to be valued corporate citizens in our communities and respect the values and cultural heritage of local people.

To meet these commitments, we have put in place management systems and standards. We identify, assess and manage our risks. We set performance targets, regularly monitor and publicly report on our progress, and seek to comply with all relevant industry standards and legal requirements. We aim to engage with stakeholders to build relationships based on honesty, openness and mutual trust.

BlueScope's HSEC Policy can be viewed at:

Our Health, Safety and Environment Management Standards, which include specific performance requirements and auditable criteria, apply to all our sites and operations and to major activities by contractors under our management.

We conduct a series of audits each year across a wide range of the Company's operations and activities to ensure the Health, Safety and Environment Management Standards are being applied adequately and effectively, and to verify performance.

Any concerns and complaints related to such matters are recorded as incidents and investigated.
