Officials of Puma Energy receiving the awards
Puma Energy, the global integrated midstream and downstream energy company with a local focus, has swept not one, but three awards at the 2019 HESS Awards which celebrates business leaders in Health and Safety nationwide.
The multiple award-winning energy company has won the awards for HSSE CEO of the Year, CSR Excellence and Road Safety Education – all three awards demonstrating a clear commitment to leading the way in spreading safety culture to the wider society.
Mr. Yahaya Yunusa, the Managing Director of Puma Energy Distribution Ghana limited, was recognized as HSSE CEO of the Year 2019 for his relentless focus on ensuring that the company upholds the highest safety standards in all its operations, be it in aviation, B2B, bunkering, lubricants or retail at its 80-plus service stations nationwide.
Receiving his award, Mr. Yunusa expressed gratitude for the recognition and encouraged his team to continue to uphold the high safety standards that Puma Energy emphasizes.
“I am sincerely grateful for the acknowledgement. Indeed, this is a testament to the safety culture we uphold at Puma Energy. I am proud to have led such a team of dedicated individuals to achieve outstanding results in the area of health and safety across all our operations and initiatives. I also extend this award to our transporters, retail partners, suppliers and customers who have complied with our safety regulations to date,” said Mr. Yunusa.
Upon Puma Energy’s receipt of the Excellence in CSR and Road Safety Education Awards, the Brand, Events and Communications Officer, Ms. Laura Asimeng, had the following to say:
“At Puma Energy, we are all about fuelling Ghanaian journeys, and this is something that we intend to do safely at all times.
“It however does not end with us – we are passionate about spreading our safety culture to the wider public. With Road Safety NGO AMEND and the Rotaract club for example, we provided road crossing infrastructure to the schools in Agbogbloshie and North Legon; with our Transporters, we hold quarterly road safety quizzes to ensure they are on top of road safety knowledge. We leave no stone unturned in ensuring all we interact with are ‘Puma Safe’”, said Ms. Asimeng.
The HESS Awards are organised by IanMatSun Global Services Limited, organisers of the Sustainability and Social Investment Awards in partnership with Firmus Advisory, a leading research company in Ghana.
