TOTAL SINGAPORE'S WORLD DAY FOR SAFETY: UNDERSTANDING OF GOLDEN RULES
The 14th edition of Total's World Day for Safety was commemorated both physically and virtually in Singapore! In line with our theme for our WDfS this year "The Golden Rules everywhere, everyday", 600 employees from Singapore, Asia Pacific and Middle East participated in two virtual safety tours, two webinars, two escape games and four workshops from 26 – 30 April 2021.
The event was launched on 26 April with an address by Senior Vice President, MS AMPO and Total Singapore Country Chair Ting Wee LIANG. This was followed by the sharing of the results of the IPSOS survey on Total's Golden Rules. The survey revealed that the Golden Rules are known, understood, applied, reminded and checked by the majority of staff and contractors. More importantly, employees feel safe at their workplace.
In the afternoon, tours were organized at Tuas Lubricants Blending Plant, which has achieved 1,934 days without injury. The tour showcased the safety practices of the workers on site and the application of Safety Green Light and Life Saving Checks. The use of an internet connected headset with a camera enabled over 200 employees in Singapore and Paris to join the tour virtually.
During the week. workshops on Safety were conducted in-person at Frasers Tower training rooms where participants were introduced to fun and interactive activities to broaden their knowledge of the golden rules and how one can apply them not only in the workplace, but at home and as part of our everyday lives as well. Each workshop has four stations which focused on a different topic, enabling the participants to learn, think and apply actions that will improve their personal and collective safety.
Two different types of online games were introduced. Due to the online nature of the games, participants were invited from the zone and our headquarters in Paris to take part. Remarkably, there were groups with individuals from different countries. The games were fast paced and challenging, requiring players to work together to tackle problems including puzzles that tested their knowledge of company safety rules and emergency life saving techniques. At the end of each session, players shared that they had a lot of fun and they felt like they had a vigorous brain workout - tiring but key in making them smarter and stronger in terms of safety knowledge.
