At Chevron, everything we do begins with our fundamental commitment to operational excellence. Our safety culture is based on two key principles: do it safely or not at all; and there is always time to do it right.
Chevron works to minimize the risks and impacts associated with all aspects of the life cycle of our products, including their manufacture, transport, use and disposal. We assess safety, health and environmental information as well as compliance with the product safety legal requirements where our products are made, sold and used. Our Operational Excellence Management System (OEMS) is designed to help continually assess compliance with product stewardship requirements around the world.
workforce health and safety
We are focused on preventing fatalities and serious incidents. This requires operational discipline among our more than 48,000 employees and our full-time-equivalent contractor workforce of more than 163,000. We manage risk at our worksites by identifying and evaluating job task hazards, putting appropriate safeguards in place, and then checking periodically to make sure the safeguards are functioning effectively.
We apply our OEMS to manage process safety as we work to prevent serious incidents, such as explosions, fires and accidental releases. Along with our ongoing operational focus, we conduct systematic reviews of facilities and projects to identify and reduce risks, and we perform in-depth hazard analyses to strengthen safeguards that can prevent injury and loss of containment.
Process safety is incorporated into the design of every Chevron production facility. Through policies, training and tools, we’re helping our workforce focus on protecting the safety and health of people.
