On the 25th of November 2015, Petrogas Gabon SA in cooperation with Shell Gabon successfully conducted a Safety Day at Shell Training Center in Gamba Gabon Africa.
The event was a one day interactive training course for staff assigned to work on the contract with Shell Gabon. The Safety Day included presentations and interactive work-shops that helped to brainstorm on incident prevention, based on experience encountered by Petrogas staff.
The major focus of the Safety Day was on Road Health and Safety. In addition to this, the training course also covered the following topics:
- Understanding of Occupational Health and Safety
- Workshop Health and Safety
- Environment and Wildlife
The training blocks were given by the dedicated Petrogas staff: HSE Manager (Tomaz Ribeiro), Project Manager (Paulo Castro), as well as the senior management of the company Alexandre Maari and Jean-Baptiste Taormina.
The Safety Day was also highlighted by the visit of the senior Shell OLS management: Logistics Manager (Jacques-Lord Nomsy Ntchougougnene) and the Head of Land Logistics Services (Sam Kombila), who stressed the importance of HSE trainings and positively assessed Petrogas’s efforts.
Our plan is to keep raising HSE awareness and increase the level of quality of our services. Petrogas Gabon is committed to its clients and will continue training its staff in order to provide high quality services both safely and cost effectively.
