On 13 May 2017, APM Terminals Pipavav has set a record by completing 1000 days with zero fatality & Lost Time Incidents (LTI) at the port. The port management asserted that considering the pace and different types of cargo handled at the port, it is a significant accomplishment for APM Terminals Pipavav. “This is the result of constant care, continuous training, monitoring and supervising the operations at all levels at Pipavav,” said the port sources.
The sources also maintained that the port has embarked on APM Terminals’ designated ‘Fatal 5’ initiatives to ensure maximum safety with collaborative efforts in transportation, suspended loads & lifting, working at heights, stored energy and control of contractors.
“1000 days of safe operations at the port is an outstanding milestone for our port. This has only been possible because of our dedicated organisation and proactive initiatives to ensure safe operations at work. We will continue to work hard and try to reach another 1000 days without anybody getting hurt or injured at our workplace,” added Mr Keld Pedersen, Managing Director APM Terminals Pipavav.
