The JSI process was developed by BST Management provides guidelines for effective implementation and performance of site inspections by BST personnel. JSI is an integral part of Black Sea Terminal’s Safe Operation System and covers all operations and site operated by terminal.


Personnel involved in Joint Site Inspection are responsible for the active participation in site inspection processes to ensure compliance with all applicable health, safety and environmental protection norms, standards and procedures within BST facilities. They are also responsible for providing related departments with the site inspection reports, with suggested actions for correction.


The inspections cover process sites, construction sites, buildings, temporary structures, workshops, tools, equipment, machinery and mechanisms, as well as work methods and practices. Each inspection starts with a review of the action points from the previous inspection, any unresolved issues is mentioned in the relevant section of the new report.


The inspection group involves personnel from different disciplines with various experience and knowledge on company processes, HSE standards and procedures.
