Lago launches grand

scale job search


To help emplo ees find suitable
emplo\ ment elsewhere, the
Company introduced the Job
Scan h Assistance Progi am,
v hereby employees are given
assistance in a variety of ways in
applying lor a job in line with
their qualifications
This piogiarn is spearheaded by
NM Ainold Galpeiin of Bello
Martin Galpcrin Associates of
Miami, Florlda. and consists of
sevcl al approaches:
* Lago is sponsoring a series of
emplo\ ment advertisements in
major European business journals
and news\papers. These ads
highlight the availability of Lago


employees in a wide variety of
skills for assignments in overseas
locations. Some of the papers these
ads are appearing in are, De
Volkskrant, The London Times
and the Algemene Dagblad
* We identified 600 companies in
20 countries, e.g., United States,
Canada, Holland, United
Kingdom, New Zealand, Saudi
Arabia, Australia, Nigeria,
Kuwait, Belgium, etc., that
employ people very much like
Lago employees. Letters, signed by
an Esso Inter-America executive,
were mailed to these companies
soliciting their interest in
employing Lago workers.

* Lago set up a comprehensive
reference library on prospective
employers for use by all employees.
Subscription to more than a dozen
newspapers from various countries
is part of the library. Newspapers
known to include employment ad
sections have been selected.
* Employees are being assisted in
the preparation of their resumes in
three ways:
- A special training program on
how to prepare resumes has been
conducted with assistance from
- The Company identified and
selected individuals to help review
employees' resume drafts and
suggest improvements.
- Clerical assistance is provided
to all employees for typing
completed resume drafts and
reproducing needed copies.
* Lago encouraged companies to
send interviewing teams here to
talk to prospective employees.
* The Company also conducts
workshops in resume writing and
in development of skills for
successful communication in a job
interview situation. All employees
are eligible to attend.
While the Company realizes that
in spite of all these efforts, not
everyone will be able to find
suitable employment right away, it
takes satisfaction in having
provided its employees with the
tools and skills to find the job of
their choice. *

good year for safety

In general, 1984, was a good year
for safety at Lago. In all but one
of our safety statistics, we show a
sometimes marked -
improvement over 1983. For

1983 1984
Total number of
on-the-job accidents: 53 39
Total number of
off-the-job injuries: 129 74
Traffic accidents: 31 16
Number of fires and
explosions: 9 3

Unfortunately, the total number of
on-the-job accidents did include
three disabling injuries and that is
three too manx. The principal
contlibutmg actor to all of these
ac( idents is still "human erior" -
mistakes made in judging a
situation or oversights cd ing
pI)lpali 01 or e\ccution of a ob.)
Mistakes can be avoided by being
more attentive and better trained.
'W while attentiveness is difficult to
manage. Ac did in( case our
Iiaining ctloi s spccilfiallN in the
field Io salt\ hazard identification.
About 170 persons attended the
special Du Pont SaletN Aiudit
training which was designed to
make people more a\waie of
potential hazards. The contractors
\\ king on Lago's premises also
cont lbuted to out safety record
impiovemcnt. The total number of
disabling injuries lor contractors
dropped from 32 in 1983 to 12 for
1984. A big achievement!

Lago has recently completed the installation offuel heating equipment so that WEB can
continue to receive its fuel oil without interruption once the refinery has ceased to operate.
When Lago supplied WEB with fuel oil directlyfrom the units, the oil was very hot when
it entered the pipeline andflowed easily. Importedproduct will cool in the storage tanks and
thus will not flow through the pipeline. The installation of heaters is to maintain the
product at an adequate temperature for transmission through the pipeline.

in magnitude

and approach


Mr. Ken Brook, one of the
Sr. Ken Brook, un di e intructorr

Bello Martin Galperin Associates,
Inc. is essentially an employment
office which offers services to
companies who want to place
employees elsewhere. This
Company, based in Miami,
Florida, was contracted to plan,
conduct and steward a complete
Job Search Assistance Program for
Lago. Mr. Arnold Galperin,
President of that Company, relates
some of the background of this
program. "Our Company has been
working with Exxon Corporation
for about five years on corporate
placement. Normally this is done
on a one to one basis, as it is not
very common that a company
shuts down a whole operation. At
Lago, however, the program is of a
greater magnitude. First of all,
because of the number of people
involved, but also because
essentially all of the placement
opportunities are abroad. "Mr.
Galperin indicated that as far as
he knows, no other Company in
the world has ever undertaken a
program of such magnitude. "We

are putting a lot of effort into it to
make it a success," he continued.
Just one example of this effort is
the method his company used to
identify potential employers. "We
selected 600 companies which we
sent letters to, offering the services
ofLago's employees. To determine
these Companies, however, we
researched 50.000 international
companies. I can assure you that
was a major undertaking."
Another major effort was selecting
the volumes for a reference library.
Mr. Galperin said they researched
about 200 books to choose the best
ones. These can now be found in
Lago's Reference Library, a
valuable resource center.

Mr. Galperin mentioned at least
two factors that can be used to the
employees' advantage in the job
search. First of all, Mr. Galperin
believes that Lago as a company is
really committed to the assistance
of its employees. Moreover, he
feels that the majority of the

employees are highly skilled
and/or experienced in a number of
related areas.
The amount and quality of
response we receive from the
international companies, however.
depend on the world economic
conditions and on the specific
needs of those companies for the
skills we have available here," said
Mr. Galperin.

A Personal Responsibility
A complete program on resume
writing/interviewing techniques,
workshops, and private
consultations was made available
to all employees. That, in addition
to all the other aspects of the Job
Search Assistance Program.
provide the employees with all the
right tools to look for a job.
Following the good advice received
from the program is an excellent
start, but only a start. The
responsibility remains with the
employee to seek and follow-up on
all job opportunities. 0

Lago Sr. Arnold Galperin,
president d e compania ey, ta
relate algun information basico di
e program aki. "Nos compania ta
trahando cu Exxon Corporation
pa mas o menos cinco afia ariba
empleo corporativo. Normalmente
esaki ta wordo haci ariba un base
di un pa un, ya cu no ta hopi
comun cu un compania ta stop
henter un operation. Na Lago,
sinembargo, e program ta di un
magnitude much mas grand.
Prome cu tur cos, pa motibo di e
cantidad di hende envolvi, pero
tambe pasobra esencialmente tur e
oportunidadnan pa empleo ta na
pais extranhero. "Sr. Galperin a
indica cu asina lew cu e sA, ningun
otro compania na mundo a yega
di tuma na su encargo un
program di tal magnitude. "Nos ta

haciendo hopi esfuerzo pa hacit un
exito," ela continuA. Djies un
ehemplo di e esfuerzo ta e m6todo
cu su compania a uza pa identifici
possible dofionan di trabao. "Nos a
select 600 compania pa cual nos a
manda carta, ofreciendo e
servicionan di Lago su
empleadonan. Pa determine cual
lo ta e companianan, sinembargo,
nos a investigate 50.000 compania
international. Mi por sigurabo cu
esey tabata un encargo mayor."
Un otro mayor esfuerzo tabata pa
select e volumennan pa e
biblioteca. Sr. Galperin a bisa cu
nan a investigA como 200 buki pa
scohe e mihornan. Esakinan por
wordo hafid den e Biblioteca di
Referencia di Lago, un centro
valioso di recurso.

Sr. Galperin a menciona por lo
menos dos factor cu por wordo uzai
na ventaha di empleadonan den
buscamento di trabao. Prome cu
tur cos, Sr. Galperin ta kere cu
Lago como un Compania ta
verdaderamente comprometi na e
asistencia pa su empleadonan.
Ademas e ta sinti cu e mayoria di

e empleadonan ta altamente hibil
y/of experience den un cantidad
di areanan relacioni.
"E cantidad y calidad di respuesta
cu nos a ricibi di e companianan
international, sinembargo, ta
depend di e condicionnan
econ6mico na mundo y di e
necesidadnan especilico di e
companianan ey pa e
habilidadnan cu nos tin disponibel
akinan," Sr. Galperin a bisa.

Un Responsabilidad Personal
Un program complete tocante
scirbimento di resume

Esey, fuera di tur e otro
aspectonan di e Programa di
Asistencia cu Buscamento di
Trabao, ta duna e empleadonan
tur e medionan corecto pa busca
un trabao. Siguiendo e bon
conseho ricibi di e program ta un
comienzo excelente, pero
solamente un comienzo. E
responsabilidad ta keda cerca e

it has been called a worldwide
modern epidemic, the twentieth
century killer. It is unwanted and
n uninvited, but visits almost every
ome, probably yours also. Once it
arrives, you cannot avoid its
poisonous effects. That insidious
disease is called STRESS.

What is stress?
Stress is the state of a prolonged
emotional pressure or tension.
Your body and mind seem to be in
a constantly alert, excited state
with no relief in sight or no
understanding of how to cope with
it. It is this type of stress that can
easily hurt you ph\sicalls, for it
threatens the bod\'s normal
equilibrium You may feel a knot
in \oin stomach, splitting
headaches or constant exhaustion.
Stress leads to heart attacks, ulcers,
heicat ailnients. diabetes and
obesiti Reseatchers have reported
that stress contributes to at least
lens of millions of hospital cases
and ldaths each \ear.
Symptoms of stress
Yoo ma\ be sullering hfom stress
and not e\en recognize it as such.
Stiess i manifested in physical
altei nations As a consequence,
man\ people suflering from stress
ma\ be despeiatcly trying to deal
\ilhi the symptoms itself (e.g.
headache' instead of dealing with
the ieal cause. Therefore,
identil ing the symptoms is
important when \ou are trying to
cope with stress. The following are
some common symptoms to
excessive stress or tension: unusual
irritability, troubled sleep, altered
breathing, muscle stillness (not
attributable to healthy work or
exercise), uneasy or painful
stomach, excitableness. If the
symptoms you experience are not
due to your nourishment, physical
activity or the lack of them,
consider whether you are
becoming a victim of stress.

Causes of stress
Researches have widely studied
and identified life's most stressful

problems and circumstances. .
Many of us in our present
situation are involved in at least
one of these:
- death: of a spouse or family
- marriage / divorce / separation How to cope with stress
/ marital reconciliation As stress is a deadly epidemic, it
- job loss / retirement / business would be worth finding a method
readjustments for coping with it. Perhaps the
- jail term most significant step to take is to
- pregnancy / family growth / attempt to discover what it is that
sex difficulties, is putting you under stress. Once

To ensure continued cooking gasfor A ruba's needs,.Lago'has recently installedfour storage
LPG drums and unloading lines at a cost of about $900'000. This project was completed
in a record time offour weeks, and on January 29, 1985, thefirst cargo ofpropanagas was
received on board the vessel "Sheldon Gas". With the added storage capacity, the, island's
LPG inventory has been increased to 45 days.
Pa sigurd e continuidad di gas di cushina pa Aruba su necesidadnan, Lago resientemente a
install cuatro drum pa almacenahe di LPGy lineanan di descarga na un costo di mas o
menos $900.000. E proyecto aki a wordo complete den un tempo record di cuatrosiman,y

you have that isolated in your
mind, your response to it will most
probably be less severe even if you
cannot avoid the cause of the
stress. Next, bring into practice the
following advice:
Adapt to the situation: If you
cannot get away from the cause of
stress (e.g. noise), try to adapt (e.g.
shut windows, use ear protectors).
This may not eliminate your stress,
but it will at least reduce it.
Talk it out!: Do not keep the
cause of your stress to yourself:
Discuss it with a friend. That in
itself is a relief. Besides, your friend
may help you see different aspects
of the problem or situation and
help you find a way out. The
problem may not be as
overwhelming as it seems.
Be active!: Stress causes fats and


sugars to accumulate in your
blood. Inactivity keeps you in a
stressful situation, but if you
participate in some physical
activity e.g. in the form of exercise,
this will counteract those stressful
effects and will restore your body's
Get tired to relax: A famous
doctor once commented: "For the
full enjoyment of leisure, you have
to be tired first, as for the full
enjoyment of food the best cook is
hunger." In other words, be active
and productive and then enjoy
some recreation to the fullest.
Sleep well: Sleep is necessary to
restore your body and mind.
Deficiency in sleep is a stress in
itself, so it is even worse when you
have to cope with other stresses on
top of that. Sleep enough to feel
fit! 0

e epidemic modern

Ela wordo yami un epidemia
modern rond mundo, e asesino de
siglo 20. E ta indeseable y no ta

menos algun diez million di
casonan di hospital y morto tur

Sintomanan di stress
Bo por ta sufriendo di stress y no

ta ni reconoc6 como tal. Stress ta

fisico. Como consequencia, hopi
hende cu ta sufriendo di stress por
ta purbando desesperadamente di
trata cu e sintoma mes ( p.e. dolor
di cabez) en vez di trata cu e
causa real. Pesey, identification di
sintomanan ta important ora cu
bo ta purba na manehA e stress. E
siguientenan ta algun sintoma
comun di stress of tension excesivo:
irritabilidad poco usual, sofio
inquieto, respiracion alter,
muisculonan stijf (cu no por wordo
atribui na trabou saludable of
ehercicio), stoma inc6modo y
doloroso, excitabilidad. Si e
sintomanan cu bo ta experience
no ta a causa di bo nutricion,
actividad fisico of falta di esakinan,
considerA si bo ta birando un
victim di stress.

Causanan di stress
Investigadornan ampliamente a
studia y identifica e problemanan
y circumstancianan cu mas ta
causa tension den bida. Hopi di
nos den nos situation actual ta

separacion / reconciliation
- p&rdida di trabou / retire /
reahustamiento di negoshi
- un period den prison
- embarazo / crecemento di
familiar / dificultadnan sexual.

Con pa trata cu stress
Como cu stress ta un epidemia
mortal, lo ta vale-la-pena pa
purba hafia un m6todo pa trata
cun6. Por ta e paso mas
significativo pa tuma ta, pa trata
na descubri ta kiko ta pone abo
bou di stress. Una vez cu bo tin
esey separA den bo mente, bo
reaction ariba esaki muy
probablemente lo ta menos severe
hasta si bo no por evitA e causa di
stress. Siguientemente, pone den

Adapta na e situation: Si bo no

sonido desagradable), purba di

Cansa bo mes pa bo por
