Update following the accident of 08.05.2015

Upon the completion and submission to the competent State Agencies of the preliminary Report on the tragic accident, that took place in Aspropyrgos Industrial Installations, the process of attributing liabilities, wherever they exist, is in progress.

Already, the Management has initiated the procedures provided by the Company's Internal Work Regulation, for the nine employees and managers involved in the incident.

Meanwhile, beyond the existence of appropriate regulations and procedures, a radical culture change is promoted through the launching of major organizational changes that will substantially increase the safety and hygiene levels in our Industrial Plants and will boost the staff’s morale. These changes have already been decided upon and planned and they are currently in the phase of implementation.

The ultimate aim of the new HELLENIC PETROLEUM Group of Companies Management is the absolute guarantee of everyday safety, primarily of the workers but also of the facilities, in order to prevent similar unfortunate incidents in the future.
