Safety, health and the workplace


Safety is a core value at ExxonMobil.

The health and safety policies set by ExxonMobil and adopted by our affiliates reflect our company’s commitment to high operational standards and the well-being of our employees. We strive for an incident-free workplace and a culture that complies with our clear and simple objective: Nobody Gets Hurt. We build our culture of safety and health by attracting, developing and retaining individuals who share our commitment to operational excellence.

In 2017 ExxonMobil achieved our lowest ever recordable injury rate as we continue working to eliminate all serious injuries. These improvements are supported by enhanced safety standards, strengthened safety leadership skills and human performance improvement programs. All of which are worked under our Operational Integrity Management System framework.
