Vivo Energy Malawi last week commemorated its annual safety day with a call to ensure safety where they operate their business.
The day gives members of staff and contractors an opportunity to focus on health, safety, security, environment and quality.
Speaking during the event in Blantyre, Vivo Energy Malawi managing director Jean-Michel Arlandis said: “This day reminds our employees and customers that security, safety and environment are at the centre of our business activities.”
He said Vivo Energy, which is the Pan-African retailer and marketer of Shell lubricants and Engen-branded fuels, is putting all measures to protect employees from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“All our employees have been vaccinated against Covid-19 and currently we are working on shifts at the same time observing all preventing measures,” he said.
Vivo group head of health, safety, security, environment and quality Grant Bairstow said safety is integral to their business and long-term success in Africa.
“We are proud to report that this year the company has continued to perform well against all our health, safety, security, environment and quality indicators,” he said.
Vivo Energy Malawi health, safety, security, environment and quality manager Goodson Mwenye said their goal is to achieve world-class safety culture where health, safety, security, environment and quality is fully integrated into their operations.
“While safety is embedded across the company, the annual safety day provides a moment for our team to ensure that we are doing everything we can to achieve our aim of no harm to people and minimising our impact on the environment,” he said.
