Health, Safety, Security & Environment

At Botswana Oil Limited (BOL) Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) is our top priority. This is in recognition of its importance to our business, partners, employees and the communities within which we operate. BOL has zero tolerance to HSSE incidents and strives to maintain:

  • zero injuries
  • zero fatalities
  • zero workplace illnesses
  • and zero spills or environmental pollution.

All aspects of our business are managed in a safe, healthy and environmentally responsible manner in accordance with statutory requirement. Therefore, we endeavour to create and maintain a safe, clean and healthy workplace and environment.

The BOL HSSE Policy defines our HSSE commitment and safety culture. We know that successful management of HSSE in the workplace requires commitment, consultation and co-operation of all company stakeholders.

We encourage all stakeholders active in the BOL workplace whether these are employees or contractors to appreciate the need for HSSE systems and their contribution to making the workplace safer.

The BOL HSSE Policy is important as it: 

  • Demonstrates that BOL is meeting its health, safety and environmental obligations and is committed to working within set HSSE principles;
  • Defines BOL roles and responsibilities and confirms that safe systems of work are recorded, communicated to employees and implemented in a consistent way throughout the business;
  • And guides the business to manage employees more effectively by defining acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in the workplace.

In its effort to meet the above commitment BOL is currently developing an HSSE Management System which will be a set of standards, procedures and guidelines on how to implement HSSE in the organisation.
