The coronavirus outbreak has caused the world to reconsider and reevaluate many things that might have otherwise been taken for granted. For example, trips to the grocery store, enjoying dinner out with family, and traveling for vacation are all viewed differently since this pandemic. Our perspectives have changed.
As a global company that is working daily to combat this virus, LyondellBasell has taken the spread of COVID-19 very seriously. We have been operating with three key objectives: Health and Safety of our People, Safety and Security of our work locations and Maintaining Business Continuity with our customers and suppliers.
At this very moment, LyondellBasell team members are hard at work keeping our plants running safely and reliably, ensuring that our products are available to make medical devices, protective equipment, test kits and cleaning products that eliminate viruses and various pharmaceutical applications.
Our health and safety remains at the forefront of everything we do as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, we must remain vigilant. Our workforce is our top priority and we will continue to work safely and limit the spread of the virus.
Make no mistake: Team LYB is on the front lines of combatting the coronavirus. Together, we will get through this.
