This clause is part of policy clause section 5 Risk Management. Risk Management is an essential function of safety and environmental protection and these Clauses reflect that importance. They set both general safety and environmental protection standards and specific DE&S requirements that support the need for assurance and performance monitoring to the Defence Board. The requirement to refer risks through Line management is included here.
Clause 5.3 of the Statute Policy mandated by DE&S states;
Operating Centres, Project Teams or equivalent shall adopt a recognised hierarchical approach for achieving a reduction in safety risk and environmental impact.

Procedures Subject to Policy
Environmental Management Plan
A fully resourced plan to manage potential impacts to the environment should be developed. It is likely that aspects will be known to the project team prior to commencement of the POEMS Process. This procedure should allow the project team to budget, resource tasks that may be required to assess the significance of the impacts from the project and to demonstrate that any significant impacts are minimised or reduced, as far as reasonably practicable.
This procedure will enable the project team to ensure that environmental issues are appropriately managed, with all environmental responsibilities communicated. EMP02 will assist the project team in identifying stakeholders, define and agree project environmental responsibilities, produce an effective communication plan and assemble an environmental committee.
Risk and ALARP Evaluation
This procedure provides guidance through Risk and ALARP Evaluation in order to identify where the system Risk meets Tolerability criteria, and where further action is required.
This procedure provides risk reduction guidance for hazards that have not been evaluated as being either tolerable or broadly acceptable and ALARP.
