Refining petroleum products in a major hazard facility requires an excellent safety focus.
Working with its contractors, Shell Geelong Refinery, has developed a Shell and Contractor Safety Centre that rises to the challenge of ensuring that people are well trained for their work.
The large building has many rooms devoted to different aspects of working in industry. Each room has murals setting the scene and equipment that educates people on safe ways to undertake specific tasks.
The refinery, which employs more than 520 people including contractors, is one of Shell^s most sophisticated refineries worldwide and a leader in industrial technology and workforce safety.
The refinery produces more than 6 million litres of motor gasoline a day and provides about 50% of the fuel used in Victoria.
