Subject: SAFETY ALERT - Mobile Phones and Refueling Don't mix

What's the problem
The Shell Oil Company recently issued a warning about three incidents where Mobile Phones have ignited fumes while being answered or ringing during fueling operations.
Please share this with employees who do not have access to email, family members and friends to help keep everyone safe.
