Puma Energy Ghana, a leading energy company committed to promoting road safety, hosted its 6th edition of the Transporters’ Safety Quiz, reiterating its dedication to safe driving practices and recognizing the pivotal role of transporters in ensuring road safety.

In response to a report by the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) indicating 1,086 road-related deaths in Ghana from January to June 2023, Puma Energy Ghana strategically positioned the Transporters Safety Quiz as a timely intervention to mitigate road traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

The event drew active participation from key stakeholders, including the National Petroleum Authority, National Road Safety Commission, Ghana National Fire Service, Association of Oil Marketing Companies, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), Oil & Gas groups, and Transaid. The 2023 transporters quiz featured contracted transporters, namely RIET Transport, J. K Ahiadome Transport, and J.K Horgle Transport, and was hosted by the renowned Dan Afari Yeboah, host of "What Do You Know."

RIET Transport emerged as the top performer, showcasing exceptional knowledge of safety protocols, regulations, and best practices in the transport industry. Mr. Godwin Tamakloe, the Managing Director of RIET Transport, expressed gratitude for the recognition, emphasizing the company's unwavering commitment to safety.

Zwelithini Mlotshwa, General Manager at Puma Energy Ghana, emphasized that safety is a top priority for the company, and initiatives like the Transporters Quiz contribute to building a robust road safety framework. Puma Energy Ghana's dedication to upholding the highest standards of road safety aligns with its expansion goals, demonstrating a commitment to making a positive impact in the communities it serves.

Deputy Chief Executive of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), Mrs. Linda Asante, praised the event and encouraged Puma Energy Ghana to sustain the Transporters Safety Quiz for future years to promote health and safety education in the downstream sector.

Fred Asante Antwi, Puma Energy Ghana's Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Quality Manager (HSSEQ), emphasized that road safety is a shared responsibility and highlighted the company's collaborative efforts with partners to make a meaningful impact. Prioritizing road safety, according to Antwi, not only safeguards employees and the public but also contributes to overall sustainability and business success.

As part of its ongoing commitment, Puma Energy Ghana will continue engaging with transporters to promote safe driving practices and recognize their efforts in prioritizing safety through initiatives like the Transporters Safety Quiz.
