How safe is your port?
Ports are under constant pressure to compete, they need to work faster, turn ships around quicker, load and unload trucks faster, and generally do everything at speed. However while they need to work faster, they also need to work safely. Hazards are everywhere on a port, and accidents can happen at any time. Operators must take every step possible to ensure the health and safety of people on their port, both staff and visitors.
There are many ways a port can ensure the safety of its staff and contractors, such as having sound practices and policies in place, educating staff, and using protective equipment, another is by keeping people and machinery separated as much as possible through the use of technology.
When implementing such a health and safety solution a port should consider its technology, people, and processes and ensure they are aligned and that any technology-backed processes put in place are followed by a safety conscious workforce.
