From good to great

26 November 2018 | Business

Vivo Energy, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants in Africa, held its annual Safety Day last week.

The theme, “From good to great”, invited employees, contractors and partners to think about ways of improving safety performance and culture across the entire business, with special attention on Vivo Energy's Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE) focus areas of Road Safety, Contractor Safety, Process Safety and Security.

Vivo Energy's commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest international HSSE standards is at the heart of its business, with events being held across the company to ensure offices, depots, sites and service stations operate even more safely in 2019.

All employees were invited to share their ideas to improve safety, with the best suggestions being shortlisted to be implemented next year.

According to James Ngethi, head of HSSE at Vivo Energy, “Safety is a priority for our business, our colleagues and our contractors. Ultimately, we want to achieve 'Goal Zero', which means no harm to people or the environment.”

Addressing employees at the event, MD Johan Grobbelaar said the company is challenged to further improve their HSSE culture to make sure they continue to operate safely and maintain the reputation of the Shell brand. “This year our HSSE score card is green, year to date. We are not yet where we would like to be, but we would like everyone to participate in making the Vivo Energy Namibia HSSE track record move from Good to Great.”
