In general the event was focused on ‘Goal Zero’ covering overall safety for everyone in every situation and Forecourt Safety concentrating on petrol station safety, as well as personal safety. Shell’s Goal Zero safety initiative focused on striving for total safety, because being 99.9% safe is just not safe enough.
Shell representatives and operational staff from AJ Bayliss spent a Safety Day with Franklin staff at Ipswich, UK office. The day started with attendees sharing their personal risks and how these can be eliminated to achieve Goal Zero. The most important and useful part of the Safety Day was an in-depth discussion with contractors about processes and operations involved in site installations and how they can be simplified even further.
Emma FitzGerald a VP of Shell said: “Candid feedback from contractors is really valuable in ensuring that we reflect their experience and create practical solutions.”
In the Netherlands Franklin’s representatives participated in the Safety Day organized by a company called van der Velden Rioleringsbeheer located in Buren. Besides attendees from FFS, van der Velden Rioleringsbeheer and Shell there were also participants from Artelia, Ballast Nedam and Quint Nooren.
