The management practices described in this recommended practice are intended to act as a bridge between API's Environmental, Health and Safety Mission and Guiding Principles and activities of individual companies that are aimed at improving environmental, health, and safety performance. The self-assessment process described in this recommended practice provides a mechanism for measuring progress in implementing the management practices. This recommended practice also provides a compilation of resources to assist API members with their implementation of the management practices.
