(Press Release)
Monday, July 30, 2012

Employees at APM Terminals Mumbai achieved 500 Safe Days, without any Lost Time Injury (LTI), setting a record at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) at Nhava Sheva.

APM Terminals globally lays a lot of emphasis on Safety at terminals and the Senior Management team at The Hague is actively involved in motivating employees to practice Safety at work.  At APM Terminals Mumbai, it is always SAFETY FIRST!

APM Terminals Mumbai accounts for nearly 44% of the throughput emerging from Nhava Sheva, recording 1.89 million TEUs in Fiscal Year 2011-12, which is almost 20% of India’s containerized throughput.  Safety of staff and visitors is of highest priority at the terminal, and each one follows the example of “If You See It, You Own It”. 

“We operate with the objective that each employee, stakeholder and contractor returns home safely EACH DAY, EVERY DAY.  It is indeed heartwarming to witness that the teams’ efforts have paid off.  Kudos to the team at APM Terminals Mumbai!” said Major P. Swathimohan (General Manager, HSSE) his eyes beaming with pride. 

Innovative Safety campaigns initiated by HSSE have gone a long way in generating awareness among employees and stakeholders at the terminal. The HSSE team ensures that employees and terminal users are provided the necessary safety training and tools required to perform safe and smooth operations. Safety Workshops are rolled out to clients and contracted staff emphasizing the need to follow Safety rules inside the terminal, thus minimizing workplace accidents.

By setting ‘Rules that Work’, like regular toolbox meetings with employees and contractors, training sessions with external drivers, monthly safety meetings, recognizing and felicitating employees/ contractors displaying high safety standards and reporting of near misses, conducting periodic mock drills at site etc have contributed to achieving this milestone.  Safety Executive, Santosh Sawant, humbly says, “We will not stop here, but continue our pursuit of Safety at the terminal”. 

The terminal’s Senior Management team along with CEO, Mr. P.K. Agrawal and COO, Mr. Rajieve Krishnan congratulated the teams on this achievement.
