How we operate
ExxonMobil Aviation 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, our customers, the public and everyone involved with our business.
These commitments are documented in ExxonMobil’s Safety, Security, Health, Environmental (SSHE), and product safety policies.
These policies are put into practice through a disciplined management framework called the Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS). Through OIMS, we deploy environmental, health, safety and security standards and expectations across our global operations.
Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance Ltd, a recognized international management system auditor and certifier specializing in ISO standards, has stated that it believes ExxonMobil to be among the industry leaders in integrating environmental plus occupational health and safety management considerations into its business processes for ongoing operations and project planning.
Commitment to safety
Excellence in workplace safety is a core value of ExxonMobil and the aviation business. As we work toward an incident-free workplace, our vision is that Nobody Gets Hurt, whether at a manufacturing site, at a supply terminal, at an airport or behind a desk.
ExxonMobil works to minimize the risks and impacts associated with the manufacture, use and disposal of our products.
As part of product stewardship, we assess safety, health and environmental aspects, as well as compliance with product safety legislation, both where our aviation products are made and in their intended markets. The Operations Integrity Management System (OIMS) and other management systems help ensure compliance with product stewardship regulations. Our Product Stewardship Information Management System applies common global processes and computer systems to capture and communicate information on the safe handling, transport, use and disposal of our products, as well as emergency contact information. ExxonMobil Aviation publishes material safety data sheets (MSDS) for every country in which we operate, though they are not required in every market.
A comprehensive regulatory surveillance process is in place to monitor and evaluate a growing number of new regulatory requirements that may apply to our products. For example, the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) for hazard communication is being progressively introduced around the world. The pace of implementation is expected to accelerate over the next few years as additional countries, including the United States, adopt GHS.
In Europe, the chemical regulatory framework, Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), requires manufacturers and importers to provide extensive information about the environmental and health impacts of their products through a dedicated registration process. ExxonMobil has developed and implemented rigorous programs along the entire supply chain to meet REACH requirements.
