Vivo Energy Kenya HSSE
Vivo Energy’s vision is to become Africa’s most respected business. Our commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest international Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) standards is at the heart of our business and is a key differentiator for Vivo Energy Kenya. Being the best in HSSE is not an objective that sits apart from our overall ambitions. It is an integral and essential part of our business plan.

Our focus is on five critical areas:
  • Goal Zero – no harm to people or the environment is our number one priority
  • Transport safety – we invest significantly in training, technology and the adoption of best practice to continually improve in this area.
  • Process safety – wherever we operate – service stations, terminals, LPG filling plants, tanks, shipping, aviation, customer sites – we place the highest emphasis on process safety.
  • Contractor safe management – we require contractors and partners to manage their HSSE policies and practices in line with ours. 
  • Environmental impact – we actively monitor our environmental impact, act decisively to minimise the impact of any incidents and are transparent in our public reporting.
At Vivo Energy Kenya, our HSSE efforts are driven by our commitment to ensuring our employees return home safely at the end of their working day. In our efforts to minimise our environmental impact, we actively implement our product stewardship program, comply with all legal requirements and monitor the effects of our activities.

Company leaders and senior managers regularly review safety performance statistics and monitor a range of KPIs (key performance indicators), including near-miss reporting, timeliness of reporting, speed of investigation, and compliance with the scheduled programme of safety monitoring.

Healthy workers contribute to safe operations and increased productivity. We therefore encourage all of our teams to take personal responsibility for their health.

We also encourage our visitors to be mindful of the following health risks in the East Africa Region: malaria, food and drink.


Vivo Energy Kenya observes strict environmental standards, especially at commercial sites where we have assets, at retail service stations and at our depots.

An environmental remediation project at the Mombasa Terminal is recovering underground oil product that has leaked over time from corroded tanks.

The National Environmental Management Authority, NEMA and the Occupation and Safety Authority requires annual safety and environmental audits. These have been completed for 2013 at all depots and service stations.

Summary of environmental work:
  • Mombasa Terminal remediation work is now complete
  • Safety and environmental audits carried out at all facilities
  • Ground water, noise, light, drinking water monitoring in offices and depots complete.
Vivo Energy Kenya has operations in the country’s major towns and cities, where there is high level of crime. Criminal activities include car-jacking, armed robbery, muggings, kidnapping and petty theft. Personal security awareness is critical and Vivo Energy Kenya advises its staff and contractors to take the necessary precautions to avoid becoming a victim of crime.
