Compliance & Management

(HSE Audits)

Helping companies meet with Health, Safety & Environmental regulations


In today’s business environment, companies are under growing pressure to comply with Health, Safety and Environment regulations. Increasingly, they are looking for an integrated approach to these issues to keep their compliance costs low, avoid potential litigation and even to protect their corporate image.


What is HSE Compliance Management?

The main aim of HSE Compliance Management is to reduce a company’s risk of litigation. This is achieved by making sure the company complies with relevant regulations and by helping reduce the number of accidents occurring in the workplace. To facilitate the process for clients, Bureau Veritas constantly monitors changes to the law and carries out detailed assessments to check compliance. The best examples of good practice are noted, and used as benchmarks for other sites that need improvement in this domain
