The HMC Safety Management System

Our Horizon Safety Management System (HSMS) utilizes a proactive instead of reactive approach to safety. Developed and monitored by a Safety Committee composed of industry professionals from all levels and trades within our company, HSMS is a team‐driven solution to safety with phenomenal proven results.

In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Horizon Mud has a Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of 0 as compared to private industry (oil and gas extraction) average of 1.1.
