Pakistan State Oil lays great emphasis on the area of Health, Safety, and Environment. Ensuring the health and safety of its employees, business partners, customers, and other stakeholders is one of the prime corporate objectives, bearing equal priority as sales and profits. Accordingly, it is PSO’s policy to perform work in the safest workable manner, consistent with best industrial practices, while adhering completely to the requirements of health and safety codes and practices. We are committed to continuous improvement by establishing quality objectives, measurable targets, monitoring and measuring of processes by means of audit(s), performance review and corrective/preventive actions.
Pakistan State Oil has always considered safety as an investment. We believe that for a business to be successful in the long term it has to create value, not only for its shareholders but also for its business partners. We call this ‘Creating Shared Value’. It is not philanthropy or an add-on, but a fundamental part of our business strategy. In order to impart awareness related to the safe handling of LPG at PSO plants and at the distributor’s premises, we organize HSE days at PSO LPG Plants at Korangi, Lahore, Akora Khattak, and Dhurnal each year.
Our plant’s staff, distributors, and distributor’s staff of respective region/area participate in HSE days at our LPG plants. HSE induction, comprehensive lecture on the importance of HSE, HSE behavioral safety videos, and presentation on LPG cylinder safety are the main highlights of these HSE days. At the end of HSE day, a fire drill is also conducted at each plant. These HSE days reinforce PSO’s HSE vision to impart knowledge pertaining to safe practices to its business partners and employees thus making LPG business ‘The Safest Business’. These events were well received and the PSO initiative to organize such events was also appreciated by the participants.
