HMC GoalZero Achievement


HMC Polymers has been recognized by our JV Associate, LyondellBasell for a significant milestone in our corporate history. HMC is pleased to announce a major safety achievement:

  • 5 Years without a Level 2+ Recordable Injury
  • 9,000,000 continuous safe work hours

At HMC we demand that each employee is committed to safety and takes the responsibility to be attentive at all times, ensuring that each person, their colleagues and visitors do not get injured while at work. Visitors to our sites notice our slogan “GoalZero” which is immediately visible at our facilities. “GoalZero” means no injuries. But it is much more than a target, it is a mindset.

The GoalZero program adopted by HMC was first implemented by our JV Associate LyondellBasell. Together, we have operated our facilities using the key GoalZero objectives which are:
  • All accidents are preventable
  • An accident which results in serious injury is unacceptable – not today, not tomorrow, not ever
  • Everybody is responsible for their own safety – and that of their co-workers
  • Management is responsible for the adequacy of our systems to avoid accidents – and ultimately for everything that occurs under our duty of care

Passing the milestone of 9 million hours worked by employees and contractors under our supervision without any case of an injury requiring professional medical treatment is a proud moment and a truly world class performance. It is however, not about records or being the best. The key issue is that we want to ensure that people return to their families at the end of the working day in good health.

HMC management congratulates our dedicated employees who have been instrumental through their focus on safety as a first priority for the company to achieve this positive result.
