Each of our Global Functions, Marketing and Centres of Excellence have clear accountabilities approved by the Company's Executive Leadership Team. Our Requirements standards (previously Group Level Documents (GLDs)) and related functional controlled documents give effect to these accountabilities and outline the mandatory minimum performance requirements for BHP. Unless otherwise specifically stated in the standard, they apply for BHP-operated assets. Although these documents are for internal use, we have made the HSEC-related elements of several of these publicly available where we believe they clarify our management approach, and/or where there is a broader community or industry benefit.
Requirements standardsPlease note, the external version of these documents may re-state or omit elements of the internal version for clarity or brevity.
We supply resources essential for everyday life, economic growth and a lower carbon world, and we're committed to growing value for everyone who depend on and support us.
