Encouraging HSE best practice

Throughout the year, the Group launched several occupational health and wellbeing campaigns. These included the Safety Day campaign, organised in partnership with the Joint Committee for Security and Safety, to raise awareness about safety and security at service stations, particularly while refuelling vehicles, to ensure the safety of customers and service providers. Another initiative, the Incident Reporting campaign under the ‘ENOC Cares’ initiative, aimed to foster a transparent work culture by empowering employees to report incidents in the workplace.
