Shell Malaysia & PDRM Launch 'Go-to-Safety-Point' Nationwide
Jul 17, 2014
SHAH ALAM – Shell petrol stations nationwide will soon serve as a place for emergency victims to seek temporary shelter and help, with the launch of “Go-to-Safety-Point” (GTSP) today.
The launch by the guest of honour, Tan Sri Dato' Sri Khalid bin Abu Bakar, Inspector General Police for the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and Azman Ismail, Managing Director for Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd, took place at Stesyen Minyak Alisha, near Batu Tiga Shah Alam. Also in attendance were representatives from government agencies, retailers and partners.
“The GTSP is the perfect example of a smart partnership between the public and private sectors. With our retail network spread nationwide, we are an accessible place for people to go to in case of emergency,” Azman said.
Under the GTSP, customers and general public can seek help at any Shell station nationwide. Depending on the nature of emergency, the retailer can then contact the nearest police station and other emergency services.
Tan Sri Dato' Sri Khalid said, “Go-to-Safety-Point is part of the Government Transformation Program, United Against Crime, and National Blue Ocean Strategy. On this occasion, I would like to congratulate Shell Malaysia who has shown their support by collaborating together with PDRM to protect the security of the Malaysian society and help to combat crime. I am exceptionally impressed with the high commitment from Shell Malaysia in the success of GTSP at over 900 Shell stations throughout Malaysia”.
All Shell sites will be equipped with CCTV and an iAlert GSM communication platform. Dealers and their employees involved in this programme have been trained to handle emergency situations. They will be providing emotional and physical aid to victims at a distress corner within the station shop while waiting for the police and other emergency authority to arrive.
Shell believes that it will benefit from the close working relationship with and the added presence of PDRM, thereby increasing customers’ confidence in Shell stations being a safe place to fuel up.
In the retail market where Shell is the market leader, Shell Malaysia currently caters to one third of the Peninsular Malaysia and half of the East Malaysia’s petroleum retail market requirements, serving a million customers daily at over 900 retail sites nationwide.
