Vivo Energy Mauritius, which already demonstrates excellence in security, has achieved the distinction of crossing the threshold of 1000 consecutive days without incident nor accident.
“Vivo Energy aims to become the most respected energy company in Africa. Our commitment to implement and maintain the strictest HSSE standards lies at the heart of Vivo Energy,” said the Managing Director of Vivo Energy Mauritus, Kiran Juwaheer.
“Currently, we have achieved the distinction of operating for up to 1,214 days without incident. Constant and appropriate vigilance is key, and, of course, we are only too aware that it is always possible to do better,” he added.
Vivo has launched a campaign titled “Leadership in security starts here” to develop a culture of more participative security commitment not only for employees but also its partners and subcontractors.
The integral element of the Annual Security Day is a campaign that invites employees to uphold their commitment and reaffirm their solidarity towards security requirements. Further, subcontractors and partners of Vivo Energy Mauritius, together with the general public, are invited to make a commitment to act towards enhanced security via Twitter on VivoEnergyMtius by using the hashtag #safetypledges2015.
Vivo Energy Mauritius wants to be in perfect conformity with the commitment of the parent company, Vivo Energy, to attain and maintain the highest international standards in Health, Security, Safety and Environment (HSSE).
In 2014, the company delivered a model performance in the industry in terms of security with a TRCF (Total Recordable Case Frequency) value of 0.24 and a LTIF (Lost Time Injury Frequency) value of 0.19.
“Security is at the heart of our day-to-day activity and we are responsible as well as commited towards this essential requirement so that our operations do not harm individuals or the environment,” noted Kiran Juwaheer.
The Annual Security Day is observed by all the employees working in the 17 African countries where Vivo Energy is present and is a day that is eagerly awaited with all the time dedicated towards mulling security requirements. It also serves as an opportunity to revisit ways to individually or collectively attain the Zero Incidents Objective.
