“Part of the safety efforts also includes tracking and monitoring the health of all Shell site staff, including the checking of their temperatures before the start of every shift. Shell site staff are fully equipped with face mask, nitrile hand gloves and comply to the social distancing to ensure their health and safety is taken care of.
