Santol Energy, one of the country’s rapidly growing oil marketing

the Tema Oil Refinery in September is to help provide quality eyesight
for tanker drivers who play an instrumental role in the petroleum
“Most of the drivers do not normally have time to check their
eyesight and some of them drive at night and over long distances. With
the rise of glaucoma and cataract we deem it appropriate to have this
eye screening exercise for them so that they will know the status of
their eyesight,” the marketing
manager of Santol Energy Michael Issifu Wepeba said in an interview.
According to him, depending on the severity of the eye defect, a
driver will be referred to the appropriate health institution for a
comprehensive eye check-up.
The eye screening, he said, is part of a major corporate social responsibility to be undertaken by Santol Energy.
“As a company, our interest is not only to make a profit. The welfare
of our customers, workers and other stakeholders are of profound
interest to us as well.
“We demonstrate this through the prices at which we sell our products
which are the lowest in the market and our safety regime exercised at
our sales outlets are phenomenal” he added.
Santol Energy only recently received an ISO International certification for its business activities which underlines the credibility of its operations right from safety measures, customer satisfaction, human resource management and sales operations.
Issifu Wepeba said the eye screening exercise is in line with meeting
the international standards of safety not just for their workers but
for others who are within the petroleum downstream value chain.
“We take health and safety very critical. We make sure that our
operations are conducted with minimal or no incident to our workers and
clients,” he stated, adding, the eye screening exercise is the first of
many corporate social responsibility activities the company will embark
