Putting safety first at Shell

Vivo Energy Ghana, the company that distributes and markets Shell-branded products and services in Ghana, and the reigning CIMG Petroleum Company of the Year, has organised a fire drill at its Shell service station in Sakasaka in the Northern region.

The main objective of this exercise was to test staff readiness and effectiveness in responding to emergencies that may result in injuries, asset damage and fire outbreak within the service station. The exercise also sought to test the response time and equipment deployment of the Tamale National Fire Service (TNFS) in response to a distress call.

In under six minutes, the fire service was able to reach the site and deploy firefighting compounds to quench the simulated fire.

Speaking after the drill, the Health, Safety, Security and the Environment (HSSE) Implementer of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mrs. Esi Defor praised the team for their quick response.

“HSSE is of primary importance to Vivo Energy Ghana, so we took these measures to ensure that site staff would be adequately prepared in the event of emergencies. It is very encouraging to witness such a swift response from the team, but it is equally important that we endeavour to report all potential incidents to prevent them from happening in the first place,” said Mrs Defor.

After the drill, a debriefing was done by both the Vivo Energy Ghana HSSE team and the head of the TNFS, Mr. Aiden Badong. This included the need for staff to ensure a safe work place at the service station by engaging with customers to make sure they don’t talk on phone while fuelling, smoke on site, keep their engines on, among others.

Shell retailers win trip to Tokyo

Four hardworking Shell staff – two Retailers, one Quality Marshal and one Territory Manager – who excelled in their work in 2015 will go an all-expenses paid trip to Tokyo, Japan to participate in the Shell Global Smiling Stars Programme.

They will be accompanied by their spouses. This was revealed during the 2015 Shell Retailers’ Conference and Awards, where a total of forty-one (41) awards were presented to deserving retailers and support staff for their sterling performance in 2015 that contributed to the growth of the business.

The Smiling Stars Programme, organised by Shell Global, is an annual event that rewards its sales staff for exceptional performance across its operating units around the world. Shell believes that ‘people make the difference real’, hence the institution of the programme.  

Mr. Theophilus Aboagye of the Takoradi Highway Shell service station was crowned the 2015 Country Retailer of the Year, while Mr. Emmanuel Kwame Opoku of Avenor Shell service station was hailed the 2015 Gold Retailer of the Year. Mr. Michael K. Avorvuvu was judged the Forecourt Service Champion, and Mr. Philip Assampong was presented with the award for the Territory Manager of the Year 2015.

The event brought together Shell retailers across the country to review their 2015 performance and share the business focus for 2016.

Speaking on the theme, ‘Sharing the Success, Shaping the Future – Own It’, the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana the Shell Licensee, Mr. Ebenezer Faulkner, commended the retailers for their achievements during a challenging year in the industry and urged them to go the extra mile and exceed their sales and customer service targets.  “By doing so, we can grow the business and maintain our industry-leading position,” he said.

“We will continue to work with our retailers to help them benefit from the strength and reputation of the Shell brand by using the full range of traditional and digital media to fully optimise marketing opportunities for Shell’s product and services,” said Mr. Faulkner.

The Retail Manager of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mr. Kwame Ackah added that Vivo Energy Ghana will continue to equip its forecourt staff, including Quality Marshals, to better serve Shell customers. “In view of this, we will be rolling out a full-year comprehensive training and coaching programme to equip our forecourt staff to deliver a high-end experience to our valued customers”, he said.

In an interview, the 2015 Country Retailer of the Year, Mr. Thoephilus Aboagye, expressed his excitement for winning the most prestigious award of the night. “It is a great honour for me and my team to win this award. I was awarded the Gold Retailer of the Year in 2014 and I am very humbled to have received such recognition for my performance last year”.
