Environment, Health and Safety (EHS): Establishing a Holistic Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Strategy for Kenya’s Petroleum Value Chain

Jointly hosted with Oxfam, Kenya Civil Society Platform on Oil and Gas, National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) and Directorate of Occupati onal Safety and Health Services (DOSHS).

Overview

As Kenya diversifies its investments into the extractive sector to drive economic growth, attention to the environment, health and safety is no longer just about meeting the social responsibility; It is also a question of legal mandate and good business practice. In comparison to revenue sharing and local content, there has been minimal focus regarding the Environment, Health and Safety aspects in the extractives sector. EB hosted the policy dialogue to define the concept of environment health and safety (EHS) and contextualize it within the Kenyan extractives industry, and incentivize dialogue around various policy and legislation, based on best practices drawn from around the globe.

The forum was guided by a research paper that focuses seeks to assess the current legal framework of EHS within the Kenyan petroleum sector value chain to identify issues and gaps that exist in EHS and give recommendations on how they can be addressed to mitigate the risk factor and enhance preparedness in line with international and domestic EHS standards.
