Operations Integrity Management System

ExxonMobil is committed to conducting business in a manner that is compatible with the environmental and economic needs of the communities in which we operate, and that protects the safety, security and health of our employees, those involved with our operations, our customers and the public. These commitments are documented in our Safety, Security, Health, Environmental and Product Safety policies. These policies are put into practice through a disciplined management framework called the Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS).

ExxonMobil’s OIMS Framework establishes common worldwide expectations to address the risks inherent to our business. ExxonMobil uses the term Operations Integrity (OI) to address all aspects of its business impacting personnel and process safety, security, health and environmental performance.

The OIMS Framework includes 11 Elements. Each Element contains overarching Objectives, and a set of Expectations. The OIMS Framework also includes the characteristics of and processes for implementing OI Management Systems. Application of the OIMS Framework is required across the entire ExxonMobil enterprise, with a specific emphasis on design, construction and operations.

Leaders are responsible for ensuring Management Systems to satisfy the OIMS Framework are in place and effective. The scope, priority and pace of Management System implementation should be consistent with the risks associated with the business.
