Our Sustainable Integrated Management System (SIMS) incorporates processes and procedures that promote operational excellence. Through SIMS, we systematically manage operational reliability, performance efficiency, and health, safety, and environmental best practices.

Sustainable Integrated Management System (SIMS)

SIMS provides a consistent framework for assessing, managing, and optimizing processes and performance. It ensures we have the procedures and controls in place to operate and grow as an organization in a deliberate and sustainable manner.

The elements of SIMS are aligned into a logically sequenced framework that can guide work at any level of the organization. Each standard within the framework is supported by processes that Hunt expects all employees to meet.

Hunt Energy management systems are aligned with and in some cases certified by International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Sound Risk Management Creates Opportunity

Our company faces a broad array of risks, including physical, legal, policy, market, failings in internal processes, people systems, reputational and external events that can disrupt operations. To properly identify and manage these risks, we have established a risk management committee as part of our corporate risk strategy to develop a corporate risk map in line with potential impact, frequency and control level.
