Vivo Energy on Wednesday held its annual Safety Day to focus on safety at work.

Vivo Energy employees and contractors reflected and focused on risks that they are exposed to on a daily basis, best practice from across the group and improvements that can be made to further strengthen Vivo Energy?s industry-leading safety performance. All this under the banner of ?Safety is in our hands?.

Wherever Vivo Energy operates in Africa, even in the most challenging environments, the company?s goal is to lead by example and set a new benchmark for world-class Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) policies and practices. Being the best in HSSE is not an objective that sits apart from Vivo Energy?s overall ambitions.? It is an integral and essential part of the business.

?Our commitment to HSSE is fundamental, enduring and non-negotiable and is the starting point for everything that we do: in our operations, in the communities in which we operate and with all our customers and suppliers,? says Christian Chammas, CEO Vivo Energy.

?Our performance to date has been positive, with key metrics showing that we have met or exceeded our tough targets in vital areas.?

In 2013 Vivo Energy delivered industry leading safety performance across the 16 countries in which it operates in Africa with a TRCF (total recordable case frequency) of 0.35 and an LTIF (lost time injury frequency) of 0.25.

In Ghana, the following programmes were held to mark the day; painting of the faded road markings (zebra crossing, stop and pedestrian lines) in front of the Vivo Energy head office located on the Atta Mills high street in Accra by employees with support from the Department of Urban Roads and a town hall session to educate employees on the critical importance of safety.

A number of ?employees who demonstrated outstanding safety behaviours were also recognised for their efforts.

?I will continue to encourage safety leadership and support business leaders to take time to drive continuous improvement through proactive safety engagement with their teams and on this day urge you all to reflect on the role you can play in ensuring safety at home, at work and on the road? says Fred Osoro, Managing Director for Vivo Energy Ghana.
