MARITIME: Port Operator Scores Top Marks

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

The Cape Town port terminals have performed well in the annual NOSA (National Occupational Safety Association) audits conducted in facilities operated by Transnet Port Terminals, taking their place alongside the sterling efforts of other state-owned port terminals across the country. Both the Cape Town container terminal and the Cape Town multipurpose terminal achieved a four star rating in the audit, which examines safety, health, environment and risk management systems.


Says Chief of Environment and Quality, Raymond van Rooyen, who has overseen the NOSA process from the very beginning and was instrumental in the compliance of all terminals, “Our goal next year would be to secure a five star rating for the Cape Town terminals, which – if sustained for three years – leads to NOSA’s most coveted accolade, the NOSCAR status. We want all employees to not only strive to improve their safety standards continuously, but eventually have a total understanding of what adherence to these standards mean. This way they become an everyday ethos even outside of the work environment.”


He said this would heighten awareness of the safety standards encouraged at all port terminals, particularly in TPT’s dealings with international companies that regard safety as an important requirement for both the employees’ well-being and cargo handling.
