Health, safety and environment (HSE)
Health, safety and environment (HSE) and regulatory compliance are the foundations of Matrix's sustainability commitment and are reflected in the company's culture and core values.
HEALTH & SAFETY
The health and safety of our employees, contractors, clients and suppliers is Matrix's number one priority. We strive to protect our team and to send everyone home safely, every single day. Our commitment extends to mental health and wellbeing.
All employees, at every level of the organisation, are HSE champions, a mindset that is embedded into our culture and supported by our robust safety and compliance systems. Matrix operates an Occupational Health and Safety Management System that is certified to ISO 45001:2018.
We closely monitor log and lead indicators, to continuously improve the way we do things at Matrix and achieve our target of zero fatalities and serious injuries or incidents.
Matrix is committed to conducting our operations in an environmentally responsible manner. We are dedicated to the sustainable use of resources and to minimising the environmental impacts on the local community, flora and fauna. It is our policy to:

- Minimise waste and prevent pollution through better design and processes
- Comply with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations and customer requirements
- Monitor our environmental objectives and review our performance regularly

Matrix is committed to best practice and continuously improving to deliver superior products and services. We use leading edge materials technology along with automated manufacturing and strict quality management processes, to ensure the delivery of high-quality products that exceed customer expectations. Our Quality Management System is certified to ISO 9001:2015.
To ensure the properties and performance of our materials, Matrix undertakes vigorous product and verification testing. These tests confirm that all products are fit for purpose and are in line with the requirements of international quality standards, such as ISO-13628-16 and the American Petroleum Institute's API 16F and API 17L, as well as other specifications set by clients and industry bodies.
In addition, Matrix has developed its own set of testing procedures that incorporate both industry and client driven standards. Designed specifically for its syntactic foams and thermoplastic material, the combined elements allow for a more comprehensive set of testing procedures.
