Highest standards of safety, health and environmental care

HMEL is committed to the vision of an Incident and Injury Free (IIF) Workplace™. Safety is not merely a matter of compliance but a core value for us, which comes with an uncompromising responsibility at all levels of the organisation to ensure everyone goes home safely to his or her family each and every day.

For us, safety at work is an inseparable part of doing things right just as much as other commitments such as quality, productivity and profitability. We benchmark our Health, Safety and Environment practices against the best organisations globally and have put in place stringent management systems, controls, objectives, targets, strategies and trainings to ensure the safety of our people, processes and the planet.

IIF WorkplaceTM

Following Benchmarked Safety Practices

A culture of relationship and care

Under the IIF approach, we cultivate a culture of relationship and care for one another where people have a deep personal commitment to safety and zero tolerance for unsafe acts – no matter who, no matter what.

We measure our safety performance not in incremental numbers but in terms of relationships and people. We strenuously work with our contractor partners, third party manpower and suppliers in their obligation to follow our safety practices and ensure that they are aligned to our vision of an IIF Workplace™ at HMEL.
