Operations Integrity Management System: Chairman’s message
ExxonMobil remains steadfast in its commitment to excellence in Safety, Security, Health and Environmental (SSH&E) performance, referred to collectively as Operations Integrity.
Article Sept. 12, 2018
Many of our operations and products present potential risks to people and to the environment. Recognizing these risks is inherent in our business, and we believe the best way to meet our commitment is through a capable, committed workforce, and practices designed to enable safe, secure and environmentally responsible operations. We accomplish this through clearly defined policies and practices, and with rigorously applied management systems designed to deliver results.
The Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS) is a cornerstone of our commitment to managing SSH&E risk and achieving excellence in performance.
Since the inception of OIMS, our SSH&E performance has improved substantially. Industry-leading lost-time incident rates have been significantly reduced. Risks to the environment have been reduced, with a remarkable decline in marine spills and continuing reductions in emissions. We have been cited by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance for “being among the leaders in the extent to which environmental management considerations have been integrated into our ongoing business practices.” All operating organizations are required to maintain the systems and practices needed to conform to the Expectations described in the OIMS Framework.
Risks to the environment have been reduced, with a remarkable decline in marine spills and continuing reductions in emissions.
To drive continuous improvement, the Framework is periodically updated. This revision strengthens Framework Expectations with respect to leadership, process safety, environmental performance, and the assessment of OIMS effectiveness and is intended to:
reinforce our belief that all safety, health and environmental incidents are preventable; and to
promote and maintain a work environment in which each of us accepts personal responsibility for our own safety and that of our colleagues, and in which everyone actively intervenes to ensure the safety, security and wellness of others
We believe these measures will help drive ExxonMobil closer to our vision of a workplace where “Nobody Gets Hurt,” where “Security is Everybody’s Business,” and where our environmental performance meets our expectations to “Protect Tomorrow. Today.”

Safety training gets a dose of virtual realityIt used to be that preparing for a new job or a new task meant poring over a handbook.
