Health & Safety

Protecting the health and safety of each and every person who renders services to the Group is vital to the Group's Management. This is why we implement high standards of safety in all of our tasks.

Focusing on respect to man and the environment, ELINOIL S.A. implements and maintains an Environmental Management System, which complies with the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 standard and the Seveso III European Directive, as well as a Management System for Occupational Health and Safety, which complies with the requirements of the ISO 45001:2018 standard.

We place special emphasis on the staff's and our parter contractors' training on issues related to the protection of the environment, the prevention of major accidents and the health & safety of employees. The training offered is comprehensive and includes (in a non-exhaustive way) the following subjects:

  • Fire safety & protection,
  • Personal protective equipment,
  • Safety data sheets,
  • Prevention of risks in the workplace,
  • Work premises safety,
  • Emergency drills.

The company's premises are run and maintained by properly trained, experienced staff as well as partner contractors. We have issued written guidelines on the safety rules which must be followed during construction, service or maintenance works at the company's premises. In case any works need to be carried out in the company's premises, we implement a relevant permit issuing procedure.

There are written professional risk assessments in all of ELINOIL S.A.'s premises. Apart from being obligatory for all employers, a professional risk assessment is one of the most significant tools for the effective management of Occupational Safety and Health.

Emergency and evacuation plans have been prepared for all plants and offices of the company. The aim of Emergency Plans (EPs) is to organize the staff and available resources in such a way as to successfully deal with any emergencies in the ELINOIL S.A.'s plants and offices.

ELINOIL S.A. has comprehensive, state-of-the-art logistics and employs competent human resources, so that it can guarantee timely and safe transport and delivery of the fuel supplied. In order to carry out its transport tasks, the company uses its state-of-the-art tank truck fleet (private use and public transport). All tank trucks have the licenses and certificates set out by the legislation in force as well as all equipment required for delivery of the fuels. All deliveries are carried out by experienced and highly trained staff who follow all safety rules prescribed by the legislation in force as well as by the corporate policy.

ELINOIL S.A. has established a special service for the control of quality and deliveries since 2000; this service is staffed with control inspectors who carry out checks on deliveries in a sample-taking and targeted way, not only checking the observance of the correct delivery-acceptance procedure but also conducting checks and measurements on the tank trucks.

Since early 2019, ELINOIL implements a pioneering and innovative program titled "COMMITTED TO QUALITY", based on which the company BUREAU VERITAS - INSPECTORATE carries out the quality control and sampling of fuels and the company LLOYD'S REGISTER puts its seal on the quality of the ELINOIL supply chain.

ELINOIL S.A., with a strong sense of responsibility and considering the safety of its clients, partners and employees as well as the public health as its top priority, has implemented all necessary measures for the coronavirus containment.

On top of the overall measures prescribed by the competent Authorities, which are already implemented by the company, the ELINOIL Management has prepared a special plan to ensure non-stop operation of its plants. Moreover, it has established a special Management team to manage, coordinate the measures and interact with the employees.

It is underlined that the company has taken all required measures to protect its employees, partners and clients, to ensure non-stop operation of its Plants and to generally guarantee problem-free supply of the market.

ELINOIL is constantly following developments on the issues regarding the coronavirus and is constantly considering the implementation of extra preventive measures based on the announcements of the Greek Public Health Organization (EODY) and the competent Ministries.

With a sense of responsibility and respect towards its employees, partners and clients, ELINOIL guarantees its non-stop operation and does its best to support the state in its battle for the containment of the disease, for all citizens' sake.
