1. INTRODUCTION
1.1. Purpose
The purpose of this document is to describe the performance and behavior expectations of OMV
Group companies from all contractors and subcontractors working for OMV Group involved in EPCC
activities and services.

While recognizing that there is considerable legislation and regulation already applicable to EPCC in
the locales in which OMV Group operates, there are significant differences in the implementation
and monitoring of this legislation between countries and even within countries.
1.2. Scope
This document intends to provide guidance on how to plan to safely execute contracted work as well
as emphasis compulsory processes or procedures. The document defines the minimum HSSE
requirements in the contracts towards Health, Safety, Security and Environment that the contractor
shall fulfill upon award of the contract in the provision of EPCC equipment and services.

This document does not replace the legal and regulatory requirements, nor does it prescribe how the
contractor shall manage their business. However, this document does describe the standards and
performance level against which the contractor shall be held accountable.
1.3. Application of this document
This document applies to all HSSE aspects of the contractors scope of work.
It is expected that contractor shall prepare a HSSE plan applicable for the engineering phase of their
work addressing how they shall demonstrate their provision of a safe working environment.

As contractor scope of work moves towards construction, a separate and independent
CONSTRUCTION HSSE plan shall be prepared and approved. In addition to the construction HSSE
plan other plans shall be required to address the major hazards created throughout construction, a
minimum being;
Transportation plan (See Road transportation annex for details of OMV Group
requirements)
Environmental Management plan
Community relations plan

As OMV Group has no contractual relationship with any subcontractor but as beneficiary of the work
is held accountable for the HSSE performance of all parties on the site, contractor shall ensure that
their subcontractors shall be held accountable to the HSSE performance and behavioral expectations
of contractor.
1.4. OMV Expectations as defined in OMV HSSE Policy
During the performance of the contract, contractors shall observe the latest valid version of OMV
HSSE Policy statement and supporting HSSE documentation as they were provided in writing or
electronically by OMV.

3. PLANNING AND PERFORMANCE MONITORING
3.1. Predetermined HSSE Key Performance Indicators (HSSE KPIs)
In order to measure and monitor performance a set of Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic
and Time bound (SMART) indicators shall be agreed and used for duration of the contract and will
form a major component of the assessment of contractor performance at the end of contract.
Contractor is encouraged to develop their own performance indicators to include in the assessment.
3.2 Key Contractor documents
The contractor shall prepare the following key HSSE documents covering their scope of work IN
ADDITION to the HSSE minimum requirements of the HSSE Annex (i.e. HSSE Plan)
Mobilization Plan
Construction site HSSE plan
Environmental Management Plan (Waste management, spill response, fluid and
chemical containment)
Transportation plan INCLUDING site traffic management plan
Community Relations plan
Commissioning plan ( including SIMOPS plan)
4. CONTRACTOR HSSE PLAN
The contractor shall develop an EPCC HSSE plan to ensure the health, safety and security of their
personnel, OMV Group personnel and third parties and to minimize their impact on the
environment and local communities. This EPCC HSSE plan shall be one of the following types a
Bridging document or a standalone EPCC HSSE plan based on the OMV Management System
structure and MAY be combined with the HSSE plan legally required but shall include the
requirements of the Minimum HSSE Requirements Annex as well as the EPCC requirements
described below.
A. Bridging Document
OMV Group expects our contractors to have a robust HSSE Management System in place and
demonstrably implemented in all Contractors work. In this event where contractor has such an active
management system then contractor has the option to present a Bridging Document that shall
address all activities for which contractor is responsible and accountable. This Bridging Document
shall include as a minimum:
Alignment of Contractor with OMV Group HSSE Policy
Alignment with the requirements of the 12 elements of the OMV HSSE Management
System intentions, expectations, objectives and metrics.

appropriate preventive and mitigation actions including full accountability with
respect to EPCC
Clearly identify the health, security, safety, environmental and Community Relations
procedures and actions that contractor shall maintain with respect to EPCC
Inspection and audit process to demonstrate alignment with OMV Group 12
elements of HSSE Management System.

B. Standalone HSSE Plan
This plan shall be developed by contractor as per the OMV HSSE Management System using the
template shown above of OMV expectations. Contractor, being the specialist in their field of EPCC
activities shall demonstrate competence of management of all activities to which contractor is
responsible and accountable in this plan and show alignment with OMV Group requirements.
*NB: The information provided below is for information purposes and represents a minimum
requirement contractor shall be required to provide a complete HSSE plan for ALL their
activities including sub contracted activities.
Contractor shall observe all OMV Group HSSE Management System documents provided to it in
writing or electronically by OMV and shall be expected to fully understand and implement the
necessary controls to ensure compliance.

Listed below is an example template of what shall be in the HSSE plan.
4.1. Leadership and Commitment
Visible and active leadership demonstrated throughout the period of work to support HSSE
in the execution of EPCC activities:

4.4. Risk Management
The contractor shall demonstrate a robust risk management process so that all work hazards
and risks are identified and assessed with appropriate controls implemented to ensure a safe
work environment as well as the safe execution of work. It is recognized that many
engineering contracts do perceive HSSE hazards or risks due to their office environment.
However, this is not always the case as personnel may be required to make field, site or
facility visits. Therefore OMV Group expects the same management control to manage
hazards and risks:
The risk management program is appropriate for the risks in the execution of work
and shall comply with the legal requirements.
Contractor shall coordinate their risk assessments with other companies,
contractors and third parties with whom they interact.
Appropriate risk management tools are used for the level of risk of contractor work
Risk assessments are conducted for the normal routine activities AS WELL AS risk
assessments for the work environment experienced for the execution of work
Specific Job Safety Analysis (JSA) or risk assessments are completed for use by
personnel executing high risk activities
The contractor shall be able to demonstrate that risks are reduced to ALARP As
Low As Reasonably Practical
OMV Group

public, other contractors, client and third party and the range of potential
harm they may experience from each hazard.
Evaluation of the risk exposure to these personnel for each type of hazard or
risk considering the expected training and knowledge of these personnel
Prevention of risk through elimination completely or change or procedure to
significantly reduce exposure
Mitigation controls to reduce the consequences should the incident be
