When it comes to supplying gas for households, Shell always puts customers’ health and safety in the priority. We provide cylinder liquefied petroleum gas or LPG to end customers for cooking and heating every day through our LPG Cylinder distributors and therefore ensuring distributors’ performance in delivering safe and reliable services are inevitably crucial. In January 2016, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) and the Gas Standards Office (GSO) jointly launched a “LPG Cylinder Distributor Safety Performance Recognition Scheme”, aiming at evaluating safety performance of all LPG Cylinder distributors in Hong Kong and, ultimately, enhancing safety standards across the industry. As the pioneer in the LPG industry, LPG Cylinder Distributors of Shell have gained remarkable achievement in the scheme.
The scheme covers all registered gas supply companies in Hong Kong, namely Shell, Sinopec, Concord, Rise Smart and ExxonMobil. A total of 184 showrooms have been audited in order to evaluate adherence to various safety criteria, with performance categorized as Gold, Silver and Bronze. In recognition of our leadership at the forefront of LPG safety, LPG cylinder distributors of Shell obtained 22 out of 33 Gold awards in the scheme. By winning two-thirds of the Gold recognitions, Shell has proven that our distributors’ professionalism and safety procedure standard are at the top of the industry.
The gold ratings sweep in the scheme from Shell’s distributors is the result of our systematic safety supervision- helping LPG cylinder distributors enhance their capabilities in providing safe, professional and reliable service to end customers. Our distributors are consistently educated the importance of safety, in return of upholding “Safety First” culture during daily operations.
As a registered gas supply company, Shell maintains stringent and professional safety levels in the industry as always to ensure customers acquire safe LPG service. The scheme is an excellent platform to showcase the safety efforts and achievements of Shell with our distributors. Shell will continue to join hands with our distributors to provide premium services to our customers while advocating the spirit of “Safety First” at the same time.
