How we operate

Within BP, our operating businesses are accountable for delivering safe, reliable and compliant operations. They have the responsibility to identify and manage risks and bring together people with the right skills and competencies.

It is an explicit requirement of our OMS that sites carry out self verification for health, safety, security and environment checks. They work in collaboration with deployed safety specialists and are subject to independent scrutiny and assurance.
Our ability to be a safe and responsible operator depends in part on the capability and performance of our contractors, suppliers and partners. We address this in a variety of ways including training and requiring adherence to operational standards in legally binding agreements.

We seek to identify and manage risks in the supply chain relating to safety, corruption and money laundering, and aim to have sustainability-related provisions in our contracts with suppliers and contractors.
