AMPT Terminals has reiterated its commitment to ensuring safety within its terminals and the entire port.
Terminal Manager, AMPT Terminals, Steen Knudsen stated this recently when the firm received the Nigeria Ports Authority Platinum Merit Award for its excellent performance in Health, Safety and Environment related issues.
The HSE awards is an annual event to acknowledge and honour port operators within the Lagos ports complex that have distinguished themselves in the areas of health, safety and environmental compliance.
In a statement the terminal explained that it received the highest award, Platinum Merit Award, for its continuous excellent performance at the port.
He said AMPT Terminals began a transformation journey in 2020, adding that all aspects of the terminal have been transformed from infrastructure, processes, and service delivery to the development of its workforce.
He said, “In 2020, we began a transformation journey, changing fundamentally how we do things in APM Terminals. All aspects of our business are being transformed, our infrastructure, processes, service delivery and the development of our people. The NPA HSE merit award is a testament to this transformation. Ensuring that everyone goes home safe after work is paramount for us. Furthermore, it enables us to be more efficient and give our customers a better experience, while adding more value to the Nigerian economy.”
The Government Relations Manager at APM Terminals Apapa, Kayode Olufemi Daniel, who received the award on behalf of the company, said, “We are so excited that we have received the 2022 NPA, Lagos Ports Complex, HSE Committee Merit Award. This great honour is a demonstration of our continued commitment to improving health, safety and environment, not just within the terminal but also within the port facility.”
Meanwhile, the statement further explained that APM Terminals Apapa has received several commendations and honours not just for its efficiency but also for its sterling safety records.
“Last year, the terminal set a new safety record at the port, as it logged 500 days without Lost Time Injury. No LTI means no injury was sustained on the job by an employee or contractor that resulted in the person being away from work due to his or her injury.”
