Oracle Environment, Health & Safety Management System
The Oracle Environment, Health & Safety Management System (EHSMS) is designed to provide a safe and eco-friendly work environment and to verify compliance with pertinent laws, regulations and other requirements. Corporate programs, procedures and plans may be modified to incorporate specific local requirements and circumstances at individual facilities.

The Environment, Health and Safety Policy
Implementation and operation
Monitoring and corrective action
Review and take actions to continually improve the EHSMS
These interrelated activities represent a system which places emphasis on prevention and continual improvement. Objectives take into account legislative requirements and information regarding environmental concerns as well as health and safety risks and their potential workplace effect on employees, visitors and contractors.
In addition, Oracle is committed to reducing, reusing, and/or recycling natural resources whenever possible. We endeavor to reduce waste generated by our global operations and where possible eliminating or minimizing waste at the source.
