(HSE) Management System Development and Implementation:
Pegasus' "three bucket" model
Pegasus helps companies develop state of the art HSE Management Systems based on international standards such as ISO 18001, or specifically for the oil and gas industry, the IOGP guidelines for the development of HSE Management Systems. However, whether starting from ground zero or where comprehensive and robust HSE Management Systems already exist, Pegasus helps turn expectations into reality. To achieve this, Pegasus employs its "three bucket" model to illustrate that the documented standards contained in the HSE Management System are as much for senior executives (Visible Leadership) and they are for middle managers and line supervisors - both being necessary to create the supporting Operating Culture. The HSE Management System should never be viewed as a more comprehensive HSE Manual, but the basis for continuous improvement in reducing the company's exposure to its principal risks. Furthermore, the management of safety is not achieved via a stand alone function, but more via a cross-functional process and the HSE Management System - if well designed - should illustrate the varied and numerous accountable functions often involved to deliver this. The "three bucket model" illustrates that leadership must first create and sustain a working environment that enables employees to consistently do the right thing before establishing specific ways of work designed to ensure operations are consistently executed to the correct standard. In other words, the HSE Management System is simply a collection of aspirational statements until such time it is converted into both leadership and line manager / supervisor actions.
