HMC Polymers held its 2018 Safety Day on June 19, 2018 at Rayong and Bangkok locations. We have now achieved 8 million man-hours without an injury and are working to reach 10 million man-hours as our new milestone. As a recognition of the 8 million safe work-hours achievement, HMC received a commemorative plaque from its joint venture associate LyondellBasell, the originator of the GoalZero initiative ensuring that safety remains the top priority of our operation.

In addition to reaching the GoalZero Safety Milestone, HMC has been also been achieving environmental milestones with an aggressive program which was shown in the event presentation.

President's Address to Employees
In his address to employees and attendees, HMC Polymers' President Mr. Martyn Ticker said:

"Today is HMC’s Safety Day, organised to coincide with LyondellBasell’s celebration of safe performance at all of it’s sites and joint ventures all across the world. Hence Global Safety Day.

I would like to ask you all to take a few minutes during the day to reflect on your commitment to safety – your responsibility to be attentive at all times, to ensuring that you, your colleagues and your visitors do not get injured while at work. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.

We have now gone more than 8,000,000 man-hours without a serious injury, and we all want to see that impressive achievement continue, to 9 million man-hours and then 10 million and then beyond. But is not because of our records, our statistics, our WIG’s (Important Goals) that I ask your commitment – but for the reason that neither I nor you want to witness or be responsible for anybody getting seriously injured while under our care and responsibility. Nobody wants to see somebody leave our facilities in an ambulance, that is a possibility that in our mindset is not OK.

Safety requires unrelenting attention to what you are doing, what you are about to do, and to the environment around you. To follow our procedures, to observe what other people are doing and to intervene if you see something that is unsafe, or could be done in a more safe way.

And as a company we require that attention to detail not just today, but 365 days per year, 24 hours per day, 3,600 seconds per hour. We look after each other, and our Safety Day is a reminder of that responsibility.”
