Make safety part of your everyday life if you want to survive in the liquefied petroleum gas, LPG, transport business” Navgas, a foremost LPG company has told drivers. Giving the advice during the safety week of the company in Lagos, Titilola Hassan, Client Service Manager of the company said that company will reward drivers that clearly demonstrate their commitment to safe LPG loading practices by entering them into a draw for a variety of prizes.

The winner is expected to go home with a power bike, while first and second runners’ up are expected to go home with freezer, flat screen respectively. The initiative runs from the 27th of October to the 14th of February 2018.

According to her, “Navgas strongly believes it is important to take a leadership role in ensuring safety of the Nigerian LPG industry. Since Navgas introduced this initiative, we have achieved a number of accomplishments; the most notable being the mandatory installation of functional emergency shut off valves on all LPG trucks.

She explained that before Navgas started the program, less than 20 percent of LPG trucks in Nigeria had emergency shut off valves, but presently, almost all LPG trucks in Nigeria have installed them and this has greatly helped control incidences of truck leaks in the industry.

“Navgas is now taking the driving safety forward initiative a step further by directly reaching out to LPG Drivers by launching a Loyalty and Reward program.

“Navgas believes that drivers who come to our terminal serve an important role in the distribution chain and appreciating their efforts in safety will further reinforce safe behaviours, highlight the importance of safe practices in the communities they service and will help improve the overall safety of the LPG industry at large.’’
