Worker safety is a fundamental business value.
LyondellBasell has a consistent top-tier safety performance, ranking in the top 10% of industry. In 2016, our global Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR) for employees and contractors was 0.21 (based on 200,000 hours worked).
Although pleased to remain a leader within our industry peer group, we continue to strive for GoalZERO performance.
Programs - Campaigns and Risk-based Approach
Our occupational safety cultural workshops and programs support our GoalZERO objective of achieving a workplace free of incidents and injuries.
At every stage of an activity, whether during planning, preparation or execution, we have defined the GoalZERO rules and practices that should be adopted. This is also an integral part of our overall Operational Management System.
Learning from internal and external incidents is an important part of our safety culture. When an incident occurs, we analyze the event to help ensure it’s not repeated or even more serious consequences could have resulted. We then take proactive steps to ensure such potential situations are avoided in the future.
