Safety and preparedness

Protecting people and the environment

At ExxonMobil, we are committed to safeguarding the security and health of our employees, those involved with our operations, our customers and the public. We believe the answer lies in three uncompromising pursuits: exceptional technology, rigorous standards and an unwavering commitment to best-practice safety procedures.

 

Like all industrial processes, energy development involves risk. Effective emergency preparedness depends on competent response teams and rigorous systems. For instance, we closely monitor storm activity that may impact the areas in which we operate.
