Champion Safety: A cycle challenge across Ghana

10th December 2018


Here at Expro, safety is our ultimate priority. We pride ourselves on having a strong safety culture and we encourage our employees to Champion Safety at every opportunity – through both their work and personal lives.

Senior Area Manager for Nigeria and West Africa, Guillaume Larnicol, wanted to give his team an opportunity to think about safety in a different way from the traditional working environment.

18 Expro employees took part in the incredible challenge, cycling 206km across Ghana, from Accra to Takoradi. They cycled for two days, over roads that are challenging for vehicles to travel on, let alone bicycles. Combined with bad weather conditions, it was no easy feat! But the team demonstrated that with adequate planning, good risk assessments, and a capacity to manage problems as they occur, they were able to achieve this challenging goal. A brilliant achievement with a strong safety focus – well done to everyone who took part!

Here's some images of the team on their journey across Ghana:
