About Hearts and Minds

The Hearts and Minds toolkit was developed by Shell E&P, based upon 20 years of university research, and is being successfully applied in both Shell and non-Shell companies around the world. Hearts and Minds uses a range of tools and techniques to help the organisation involve all staff in managing HSE as an integral part of their business.  Collectively, these tools and techniques are known as the Hearts and Minds Toolkit.

This state of the art toolkit is available to those outside the Shell Group, thanks to a publishing agreement between the Energy Institute and Shell E&P.  The Hearts and Minds Toolkit has tools suitable for managers, team leaders and workforce at all levels, that are designed to work alongside any existing HSE tools your organisation may already use.  In addition, the EI provides support on the toolkit, as well as a wide range of free web resources.

The Energy Institute is a non-profit organisation.  Revenue generated by the sale of the Hearts and Minds toolkit is used to update and extend the toolkit by funding research and development, aimed at helping companies improve their HSE performance.
