PD Logistics Awarded Safety Honor

Thursday, March 12, 2009

The North Lincolnshire Health & Safety Group has presented PD Logistics, part of the PD Ports Group, with its annual Health and Safety award, recognizing the Company’s commitment to the highest levels of health and safety.

The main award was presented to Jim French, director & general manager for PD Logistics, in recognition of the company’s continued commitment to improving competence levels and the raising of its health & safety standards. At the awards dinner, all companies which achieved lower than their industry standard for reportable accidents in 2008 were also awarded certificates.

PD Logistics’ program of education and training includes the introduction of work based NVQ Level 2 qualifications for a number of employees and the extension of the company’s safety passport training scheme.

David Jones, divisional health & safety manager for PD Logistics, explained, “Within PD Logistics there has been an 11% decrease in all accidents during 2008. This follows on from a 66% decrease in reportable accidents and a 38% decrease in all accidents during 2007. This shows that the knowledge learned through classroom training is actually being taken out into the workplace and that the schemes we have initiated, which includes encouraging more involvement from our health & safety representatives, are making a real difference.

“With health and safety as the most important of our company core values, we are committed to recognizing improvements and acknowledging achievements in this area. In 2008, safety recognition awards were given out to 180 PD Logistics employees in locations that had achieved either 365 or 1,000 days without a reportable accident.
