QHSE Objectives

The main objective for our QHSE plan is to clarify all Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental items/actions connected to the marine operations, in order to ensure a safe and a healthy work environment for all personnel.

Clinton has adopted a zero-philosophy which implies that HSE objectives and overall HSE ambition is;

• Zero fatalities
• Zero injuries
• Any damage to assets and material properties
• Unnecessary environmental impact
• To ensure that there is emergency preparedness in case of an incident
• To fulfil all national and international requirements
• To fulfil all customer and international demands

Clinton has implemented these HSE goals to meet this ambition and all activities will be organised and planned so that accidents, injuries to people, damage to material assets or impact to external environment are prevented as well as ensuring that employees are protected against work related illnesses.

With active personnel and strong focus on QHSE work Clinton ensures that the long term goal is fulfilled:

• That each completed assignment will be a recommendation for future missions in the survey industry.

To be able to achieve this Clinton will:

• Focus on customer requirements, needs and expectations to deliver the services and products which has been committed.
• Create a customer - supplier relationship in which each employee is responsible for the quality of their own work. Ensure that the quality policy implemented by the requirements become known.
• To strives, think of and care for the environment and Clinton’s impact on this, including emissions.

Risk Management Approach

Clinton aims to perform work without loss of life or harm to health, without damage to plant and equipment, without unplanned emissions or discharges to the environment. Accidents will be minimized by means of a thorough risk identification process with a strong connection from early planning to performance at work place. The process is explained in the diagram given in Figure 3 and through the description given below.

During the tendering phase Clinton performs a Risk Assessment for the overall project. When awarded the contract the Project Risk Assessment is then used as a basis for the QHSE Plan and Pre-Operation phase preparations. A HIRA (Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment) is performed prior to the start of the project. The HIRA meeting includes all departments and personnel active in all phases of the project.

Environmental Considerations

When performing work Clinton will be aware of the following requirements related to Environment:

• Environmental friendly materials will be given priority. Using materials or substances which cause breach of regulations, will not take place.
• Follow-up of Environmental performance will be included as part of the general HSE activities.
• All potential sources of pollution will be identified and easily available for control in order to detect irregularities prior to possible discharge and damage.
• Clinton will report when spill of oil or hazardous substances, polluted water or irregular waste are discovered. All situations including risk of breach of environmental regulations will be notified to client.
• Emergency preparedness will be established to minimize adverse effects if a polluting situation should occur.


Clinton shall promptly notify the client of any injury requiring hospital treatment, death, significant damage or near misses, however caused, to any person, environment or property that occurs on any site/onboard. Following such notification, Clinton assures to submit a report giving full details of the incident and its causes. Procedures for such reporting are part of Clintons QHSE management system.

Clinton will prior to any offshore work issue a Company Emergency Notification Plan. This plan shall be used if an QHSE incident occurs or an accident causing a fatal and/or a permanent disabled situation for personnel, vessel, equipment, 3rd part or environment. If such incidents occur, Clinton ensures that the client’s representative or the client’s 24 hour emergency telephone is contacted without delay (day/night) by the operation manager, or a person in position to do so. A copy of the Emergency notification plan shall be on the notice board on the vessel bridge.

Near miss incidents or accidents (not necessarily causing a fatal and/or a permanent disabled situation for personnel, vessel, equipment, 3rd part or environment) will be notified to the client representative onboard the vessel without undue delay.

All accidents and improvements will be reported through Clintons NCR system and sent to the Client within 24 hours.
The system is web based and easy accessed via smartphones as an app.
This will increase the use of QHSE as a tool to drive the quality forward and minimize accidents in a cost effective way by minimize the number of manual interaction and personnel involved in the administrations of a QHSE system.
