The safety of our employees is a top priority.
The entire APM Terminals organization will mark its drive towards employee safety with a Global Safety Day on October 24, 2007.
“Container Terminals are dangerous places to work and it is in everyone’s interest to ensure we have safe working environments. At APM Terminals we have a zero tolerance towards accidents and we believe all accidents can and should be avoided. Safety is a joint effort and is an important part of how we work together at APM Terminals and with our business partners,” says Kim Fejfer, CEO of APM Terminals, based in The Hague, Netherlands.
To get everyone to discuss the safety issues at each terminal, the company will STOP operation at every terminal on the 24th of October for 30 minutes. APM Terminals believes in the importance of engagement and partnership with customers, truckers, labor and suppliers to make the container terminals free from accidents.
“The purpose of this initiative is to get every employee engaged – it is a joint effort and we have the responsibility for the safety of each other. We continue to emphasize the need to focus on proactive initiatives as well as to address accidents. We have always focused on safety and continuous improvement and we need to continue with new initiatives, ways and means to reach zero, added Henrik Kristensen, Director of Health, Safety, Security and Environment. We are proud of the high safety awareness in the organization and our team’s willingness to take it to the next level.”
