Asked Questions

  • Is working in the chemistry industry safe?

    The safety of our employees is our top priority. With our ‘Zero Accidents’ objective, we are doing our utmost to reduce the number of accidents to zero. We are well on our way to achieving this, having scored 0.17 on the OSHA scale (0.17 injuries per 200,000 hours worked) by 2022. For reference, if you calculate with 40 working hours per week, that’s about 2,000 per year (52 x 40 = 2,080).

    During the construction phase, millions of man-hours will also be performed, with around 3,000 contractors working simultaneously on the Project ONE site during peak periods. For the construction, INEOS is calling on a lot of local construction companies. For example, Warsco is installing the mobile office units, Cordeel will erect the administrative campus, the civil works have been awarded to Denys-Aertssen and Mourik and Aertssen and Franki – De Waal has screwed 20 .000 pile foundations into the ground. Stadsbader Contractors and MBG are contributing to the realisation of the ethane tank. Crane work is provided by Sarens. And these are just a few examples of the many works that have been completed, are underway or still in the planning stage before Project ONE will be completed in 2026.

    A lot of people elsewhere are also busy preparing for Project ONE. And once Project ONE is operational, jobs will be added. Project ONE thus creates 450 direct jobs: for 300 INEOS employees and 150 employees of contractors.
    For every employee at its own site, Project ONE also creates five jobs at other companies.
