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.

Vivo Energy Ghana donates helmets to motorcyclists in Accra

Vivo Energy Ghana, the multiple award-winning exclusive licensee of the Shell brand in Ghana, has donated 100 motorbike helmets to members of the Unity Motorcycle Riders Association in Accra. The presentation was made during an educational session on road safety in collaboration with the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC).

The programme, which attracted about 500 motorbike riders from Nima, Mamprobi, Kaneshie, Agbogbloshie, Circle, Abossey Okai and Accra, formed part of Vivo Energy Ghana’s road safety campaign dubbed ‘My Road Safety, My Life’, following a similar programme in Tamale. 

The occasion was also used to educate motorcyclists on Shell Advance, a new lubricant designed to offer reliable, durable and quality protection for all motorbikes.

Speaking at the programme on behalf of the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mrs. Shirley Tony Kum, the Corporate Communications Manager, stressed the importance of road safety education to riders and provided them with some safety tips.

“As an oil marketing company, road safety is one of the key focus areas under our Community Investment initiatives. Motorbike riders face higher risks on our roads hence the decision to educate you on road safety, to make our roads safer,” said Mrs. Tony Kum.

“Motorcyclists should invest in good gear by wearing durable, non-slip gloves; boots that cover the ankles; and a correctly fitting helmet. You should also know your bike's limits and stick to the speed limit. As motorcyclists, you must also make sure that other drivers can see you by not riding in blind spots and always using your headlights,” she said.

The Head of Communications of the NRSC, Mr. Kwame Koduah Atuahene expressed the Commission’s sincere gratitude to Vivo Energy Ghana for its significant role in promoting road safety in Ghana, and shared the importance of such a programme for motorcycle riders.

“We believe this exercise will equip motorcycle riders with the needed skills and best road safety practices on our roads. The Commission would like to plead with all motorcycle riders to put the knowledge gained to use. Again, we thank Vivo Energy Ghana for this tremendous support,” he said.

Mr. Suleman Sule of the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate was also on hand at the event to educate bikers on traffic regulations, while the Assistant Regional Manager of the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Authority, Mr. Edwin Ofori, explained the process of acquiring a motorcycle driver's license.

The Chairman of Unity Motorcycle Riders Association, Mr. Issah Abubakari was also full of commendation for Vivo Energy Ghana and the NRSC for the training and endeavoured to ensure that members of the association would put the knowledge gained to good use to save their lives and those of others.

Vivo Energy Ghana has been a prominent force in the area of road safety.

Vivo Energy embarks on health screening and clean-up exercise for host community

Vivo Energy Ghana, the company that markets Shell products and services in Ghana, organised a clean-up exercise as well as free health screening for the Atukpai Community in Accra to mark National Sanitation Day and World Environment Day.

The exercise, whose slogan was “Clean Your Community, Save Your Life”, was borne out of the oil marketing company’s passion for the environment, a key focus area in its Community Investment initiatives. The programme attracted several members of the community and Vivo Energy staff volunteers who got involved by sweeping the streets and unclogging gutters, among other activities.

Following the clean-up exercise, health personnel checked the health status of several members of the community. Vivo Energy Ghana also donated ten (10) waste bins to the community which were received by Honourable Nii Lantey Vanderpuije, the Sports Minister and Member of Parliament for the Odododiodoo Constituency.

In a speech read on his behalf, the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mr. Ebenezer Faulkner, encouraged the community to become active proponents of a cleaner environment.

“Distinguished guests, in commemoration of World Environment Day and in line with our Community Investment initiatives, Vivo Energy Ghana has partnered today with the Chief and people of Atukpai to undertake a clean-up exercise and a health screening for residents of its host community, aimed at contributing to the development of its communities.

“We hope that today’s programme will encourage our communities to become agents of change and active supporters of the environment to promote awareness and have an understanding of the role they play in changing attitudes towards the environment. Keeping the environment clean is the responsibility of all,” said Mr. Faulkner.

Honourable Nii Lantey Vanderpuije stressed the need for members of his constituency to ensure the waste bins donated by Vivo Energy Ghana were put to good use.

“I plead with you to make good use of these brand new bins from Vivo Energy Ghana. Dumping the rubbish elsewhere will defeat the whole purpose. It would also be good for us to carry out these clean-up exercises on a monthly basis”, he said.

The Chief of Atukpai, Nii Tetteh Tsuru II who was also present at the event, thanked Vivo Energy Ghana for their constant support of the community.

“We are indeed grateful for all the work that Vivo Energy Ghana has done in our community. Such exercises contribute to the development of this area, which is a necessity. Indeed, there is the need for these activities to take place more often,” he said.

Vivo Energy Ghana is actively involved in community investment programmes where it operates. A few examples include improving the interest in mathematics through the Vivo Energy Bonanza School Challenge, the donation of 2,000 environmentally-friendly cook stoves and solar lamps respectively to women and children in rural areas and road safety programmes for pupils as well as commercial drivers.

Achimota bus terminal receives alcohol metre to prevent drunk driving

Vivo Energy Ghana, the exclusive licensee of the Shell brand in Ghana, has once again demonstrated its commitment to road safety by donating an Alcohol Metre (Alcometer) to the management of the Achimota Bus Terminal to curb drunk driving.

The donation formed part of Vivo Energy Ghana’s annual Safety Day activities under the theme “See it, report it, prevent it”. Road Safety is one of three key pillars of Vivo Energy’s community investment initiatives. The initiative was fully endorsed by the National Road Safety Commission.

Presenting the device on behalf of the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Ghana, Mr. Vincent Richter, External Affairs and Customer Service Manager of the company emphasised the importance of the safety of drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike.

“Vivo Energy Ghana places a lot of importance on Road Safety. Beyond the fact that it is one of our key focus areas for community investment, there are human lives at stake every time a driver sets off on a journey. Our lives are important, so we must do all we can to ensure we behave safely and responsibly on our roads,” said Mr. Richter.

The Company’s Health, Safety, Security and Environment Manager, Mr. Reindolf Domey demonstrated how to use the alcometer, explaining how it would play a key role in ensuring safe driving.

“This instrument, which detects alcohol on the breath, will ensure that all drivers leaving the terminal are tested for alcohol consumption. If they are tested positive, they will not be allowed to drive. If the result is negative, they will be free to go,” he said.

Mr. Charles Annan, the manager of the Achimota Bus Terminal, expressed sincere gratitude for the gesture.

“We are sincerely grateful that Vivo Energy Ghana has brought this innovation to us. We know that this is going to help our drivers greatly, as well as instil more confidence in the commuters that regularly use our terminal. This is good news for us,” said Mr. Annan.

Vivo Energy Ghana has been very active in the area of road safety. Previous initiatives include the ‘My Road Safety, My Life’ programme, Junior Road Care in 2015, the construction of speed ramps and lollipop stands near schools as well as the training Road Safety Facilitators in schools along accident-prone roads.
