Vivo Energy, the pan-African retailer and marketer of Shell and Engen-branded fuels and lubricants, has held its annual Safety Day across the whole company.

This is to reinforce the importance of Health, Safety, Security, Environment & Quality (HSSEQ) within the company.

Safety Day is an opportunity for all employees and contractors at Vivo Energy to refocus on the importance of HSSEQ.

A release issued in Accra yesterday said; “This year’s Safety Day theme was ‘Learning to be Safer’ focuses on how a combination of commitment and competency in safety helps create empowerment, allowing us to strengthen our safety culture even further.”

The Head of HSSEQ for the Vivo Energy Group, Grant Bairstow, said: “Safety is integral to our business and Vivo Energy’s long-term success in Africa. We must all continue to learn to be safer and close any HSSEQ competence gaps.

We can never be fully safe, and by encouraging a positive and learning approach will ensure we never become complacent about safety.”

In addition to employees sharing examples of how they are learning to be safer, each market has developed a programme of activities to remind their employees to focus on HSSEQ, culminating in physical and virtual events this week.”

Re enforcing our Safety commitment, Managing Director, Vivo Energy Ghana, Kader Maiga added: “Our ultimate ambition is to achieve a world-class safety culture, where HSSEQ is fully integrated into the ways of working for all parties at Vivo Energy.

Whilst safety is embedded across the company, our annual safety day provides a moment for all our teams to ensure we are doing everything we can to achieve our aim of ‘Goal Zero’ – no harm to people and minimising our impact on the environment. To this end, Vivo Energy Ghana, together with our contractors have worked for 4291 Days without any impact to People and environment as at End September 2022”
