Security & Emergency Management

We work closely with industry and government agencies to address potential security threats to the safety of our employees and communities.

We advance our knowledge, systems, plans and training to comply with evolving regulatory requirements regarding infrastructure protection. LyondellBasell constantly and proactively analyzes opportunities that could improve safety through the systems and processes at our facilities, within our supply chain and throughout our information systems.

We strongly support legislation by all nations to establish uniform, risk-based security standards, and our corporate efforts are aligned with these goals.

Many of our employees are required to travel, reside and work in locations around the globe where there are increased security or health risks. Our integrated approach to travel, health and intelligence-based protective services provides appropriate tailored information, training and assistance to employees around the world. This helps minimize risks to our personnel and improve access to emergency assistance if required.

Emergency Management

We are committed to being a responsible, good neighbor in the communities where we operate. As we conduct our business, we are aware that our operations have the potential to create emergency situations.

Although our main focus is on prevention, we constantly prepare for emergency events that could harm workers, surrounding communities or the environment. We proactively prepare through regular coordination with local governments, mutual-aid groups and emergency response organizations.

High standards of emergency training and drills are maintained through global cooperation across our offices and manufacturing facilities. We regularly evaluate the resources needed to reduce risk, and many sites maintain employee teams trained to respond to medical incidents, fires and releases of hazardous materials.
