Shell Aviation Safety Award
Shell recognizes operational excellence in the area of HSSE and Compliance.
Airports are assessed annually against 8 key HSSE and Compliance criteria that allows them to gain a Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Double Platinum award depending on their performance consistency from year to year. In 2013, Shell Aviation also included one Diamond award globally for the "Best of the Best" aviation operation. This scheme has enabled Shell Aviation to demonstrate a year on year improvement in HSSE and Compliance performance in order to provide the best possible service to Shell customers.
