INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS. PRACTICAL PROCESSES BEST PRACTICE COMMENDATION BY CHEVRON “ Chevron is recognized across industry for the emphasis that it places on safety – so when a new behavioral based safety initiative was adopted it was recognized that effective communication would be a crucial factor in the overall success of the project and, in a wider context, for continuing to reinforce Chevron’s commitment to HE&S. Chevron engaged I-Quantum Solutions early on in the project to deliver that service. Working in close collaboration with the project team I-Quantum Solutions created a strong project brand and communication plan that delivered on Chevron’s requirements and expectations by stimulating interest, raising awareness and ultimately communicating the results achieved. The promotional campaign designed by I-Quantum Solutions has been identified as a best practice and has been widely recognized for contributing towards the ongoing success and sustainability of the project.
