The Baltic Communication Awards 2017 took place on 3 March. SIA ““Ventspils nafta” termināls” (VNT) got second place in the category Internal Communication for its project “Life Saving Rules. Fun and Discipline”.

The international jury of the competition has reviewed more than 130 projects from three Baltic states in 15 categories. The shortlisted projects were presented in the Academic Centre for Natural Sciences of the University of Latvia on 2 March. In the category Internal Communication VNT presented its project on incorporation of Life Saving Rules through gamified education, and was ranked second after the joint project of Air Baltic Corporation and MM&A/Hill+Knowlton Strategies.

Life Saving Rules represent a set of basic safety requirements applied in the oil industry to address a variety of risks: from confined space to the common sense of never working under the influence of substances. Industry research shows that the strategic and consistent use of the Rules can prevent up to 60 % of accidents that could have a fatal outcome.

VNT introduced Life Saving Rules on 1 June 2016, by incorporating game elements into the education process. A specially designed Bingo game involved VNT employees and contractors. “By introducing Life Saving Rules, we proved that key targets can be achieved in a more efficient way if we apply creativity and think outside the box”, states VNT Project Coordinator Dace Edžiņa.
