HMB rents and sells protective building systems and related services; it is in the safety and security business. The products and services are designed to keep people safe and protect critical equipment from threats. HMB’s highest priority is the protection of personnel and critical equipment in some of the toughest environments. We are committed to the continued development of our products to further enhance safety and security. Developing a strong safety culture and delivering the safety performance that our customers expect only happens by having dedicated and engaged leadership at all levels.
One of the most important factors in safety is every employee individually committing to work more safely and being mindful of the safety of those around them. To support and drive this behavior throughout the organization, HMB shares safety information and best practices throughout its team and clearly communicates our guiding principles for safety to all employees.
BEYOND NEUTRAL RISK – When modular blast resistant buildings were initially introduced, the guidelines called for a neutral risk standard. Basically, the building was not supposed to cause harm to occupants in the event of a blast.
HMB designs its buildings to not only “not cause harm” but rather to protect its occupants. This seemingly subtle difference provides a higher level of protection and a higher degree of safety for its occupants.
DELIVERING RESULTS – Not only does HMB practice safety, but it is constantly innovating and seeking input from customers on how to improve and better support their efforts.
With such a large number of Blast Resistant Buildings being utilized in plants and refineries today, HMB was notified of occupational injuries occurring due to the weight of blast doors. As part of its commitment to safety, HMB sought out to address this issue and licensed a light weight blast resistant door and introduced a solution. Today, this door is standard issue on all new models, and it is also offered as a door replacement service for buildings in plants and refineries.
Our commitment to safety stands out in distinct ways:
