					    HSE Management System

    Showa Shell Sekiyu Group has established and put into practice an “HSE Management System
    (HSE-MS)” conforming to its equivalent of the Shell Group, which coordinates our health, safety
    and environmental activities.
                  Setting objectives   /      Plan   /      Do   /     Check    /        Resetting objectives

          This system is meant for voluntary and continuous improvement of our performance fol-
    lowing the mechanism of so-called PDC cycle.
          At planning and execution stages, a methodology called HEMP (Hazard and Effect
    Management Process) is applied, which consists of identification of all potential risk factors and
    environmental loading increase factors (we call them “hazards”) inherent in a facility to be stud-
    ied, evaluation of the risk effect based on the magnitude of damages on assets and environment
    caused by such hazards and the probability of occurrence of such hazards and priority setting
    for preventive actions based on magnitude of the risk.

                  Certification of ISO-14001

                 Prior to establishment of HSE Management
                 System, the facilities of Showa Shell Group includ-
                 ing refineries had acquired the certification of
                 ISO-14001, the internationally acknowledged envi-
                 ronmental management system. The Showa Shell
                 Group’s HSE-MS is established taking into
                 account its compatibility with this ISO-14001.
