Operating Management System (OMS)

The OMS is the cornerstone of our commitment to managing potential hazards and risks inherent to our operations and achieving excellence in performance, and establishes common worldwide expectations for addressing these risks.  It defines expectations and requirements for our business lines and guides line management behaviors to manage, prioritize and continuously improve our efforts to protect people and the environment.  It provides us with one systematic and controlled holistic approach for how we manage our business with respect to safety, risk management and operational integrity.

The OMS framework is ultimately designed to set out What is expected and to provide the How to meet these expectations in the form of processes, procedures and practices. Conformance to our OMS is a dynamic process designed to continuously improve our corporate standards, manage risk and driver performance improvements.  As part of this process, the OMS framework will be periodically reviewed to assess the overall effectiveness of the system, and will be updated as required.

The Seabed Geosolutions OMS framework is comprised of:

  • The Fundamentals:  These are four processes which are considered critical characteristics of an effective OMS.

  • The Elements: These include ten Elements which contain underlying principles and a set of expectations.  The expectations are translated into procedures and practices.
