In its 10th year of Shell Safety Day, Shell Indonesia held a series of activities both internally and externally. One of the activities was a customer engagement where Shell employees promote the importance of safety through dialogue with customers, in addition to distributing safety flashcards at Shell retail sites. 

President Director and Country Chairman of PT Shell Indonesia Darwin Silalahiaccompanied by GM External Relations PT Shell Indonesia Haviez Gautama led one of these activities at the Shell Pondok Indah retail site. Shell Indonesia employees also distributed feedback forms to customers to encourage them to write down their safety wish list.

We engage and invite our customers to consistently prioritize safety aspects in all of their activities, including when they are at our retail sites.”

PT Shell Indonesia also conducted a “Shell Road Safety School Visit” programme – for state elementary schools, – which aims to raise road safety awareness among school kids. The educational sharing was facilitated by volunteers from Shell Indonesia who spent some of their working hours to give road safety awareness talks to students at grades 4 and 5 of State Elementary School (SDN) and engage them in interesting outdoor game activities. This educational sharing session is focusing on three things: Safety walking and crosswalks, Safety cycling and passenger safety (motorcycle and car), and introduction to traffic signs. Shell Road Safety School Visit was kicked-off on April 4th, 2016 at SDN 05 Bintaro, Pesanggrahan-South Jakarta. This activity will continue to take place in 30 SDNs in Jabodetabek during the period of April to September 2016.
