VNT organises Family Safety Day for families of employees

June 5, 2017 / News

On Saturday, 03 June, ““Ventspils nafta” terminals” (VNT) held the annual Family Safety Day devoted to the HSE Day celebrated by its international shareholder VTTI and to the Latvian campaign “Children at work”. Around 100 adults and children participated in the event.

VNT has been organising the Family Safety Day for three consecutive years to show the family members of its employees their working environment and give an insight into the measures that make our daily lives safer. Participants of the event had the opportunity to learn about the history of the company, made a tour around the premises, visited the dispatcher room, laboratory and the fire-fighting depot. The visitors were also invited to engage in a special VNT Bingo game, participate in an evacuation from a smoke-filled room, try on fire-fighting gear and do some target practice using water hoses. The little ones had a special area arranged for them, with games and various activities.

The visitors noted that the scale of the company and the high sense of responsibility of VNT employees have left the biggest impact on them, and they appreciated an opportunity to learn how to act in case of an emergency. VNT Communication Projects Manager Janina Biteniece states: “The safety and well-being of our employees is our priority, and it does not stop at the end of the workday. By holding the Family Safety Day, we show the families of our employees where their loved ones spend most of their time. Furthermore, we expand the safety culture across VNT borders, by educating and involving family members of our employees.”

VNT organises the Family Safety Day, excursions and sports events for its employees and their families on a regular basis, as well as provides additional vacation and other benefits to the employees with children. Our efforts are recognised by the Ministry of Welfare, which has granted VNT the status “Family friendly company” for the second year in a row.
