At Oxy, we have an unwavering commitment to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all employees and contractors.
We maintain stringent Health, Environment and Safety (HES) policies at every work site. All Oxy employees and contractors are required to follow these policies and take the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their co-workers. We also expect and require employees to immediately report accidents as well as unsafe practices and conditions.
Oxy consistently ranks among the safest companies in the United States. Since 1996, the employee Injury and Illness Incidence Rate (IIR) – the number of recordable injuries and illnesses per 100 workers per year – has been less than 1.0. Oxy’s 2012 employee IIR of 0.33 – the best in company history – is far less than the all-U.S. industry average of 3.5 reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
