Controlling hazard

To avoid consequences that might be occurred through our hazardous processes, MOL Group makes every effort to provide the best and safest working conditions and business processes.

To tackle the most hazardous operations that fall on top of our risk pyramid, we first of all have to ensure compliance with the well known “Seveso II” directive. In addition we have implemented a voluntary Process Safety Management system to manage the safety of our other hazardous processes. To do not leave out even the smallest risk we decided to implement a comprehensive risk assessment project, named COMPASSS identifying and evaluating all our hazads regardless of risk level.

Ensuring SEVESO compliance

Ensuring legal compliance is one of our key intentions, as defined in MOL Group’s HSE Policy, primarily for safety reasons.

Process Safety Management

From a safety point of view, MOL Group companies operate very heterogenic processes including upstream operations (drilling, exploration and field operations), very complex and deep crude oil processing, logistic activities (including pipeline operations), retail operations, maintenance activities etc. Controlling the risk of all these chemical, mechanical, transportation, storage etc. operations is very difficult.

Comprehensive risk Assessment

In line with MOL Group HSE management system, all hazards to health, safety and environment have to be identified and associated risks must be assessed and managed. To provide a comprehensive corporate framework for HSE risk assessment, a project called ’COMPASS’ (comprehensive risk assessment) was started in 2009.
