Abu Dhabi Terminals remains LTI free
Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has had a lost time injury (LTI) rate of zero since the beginning of the year at Khalifa Port and Mina Zayed.
The impressive statistic was announced when the company launched its new safety awareness campaign. The campaign is aimed at raising safety awareness for all port users and the need to regularly promote and maintain safe behaviour in all the facilities operated by Abu Dhabi Terminals.
LTI is recognised globally as a key indicator for a company’s safety performance and ADT’s goal for 2013 is to remain at a zero rate. ADT continues to be one of the industry leaders in safety performance with its LTI rate decreasing by more than a third compared to the same period last year.
Speaking at the campaign launch, ADT chief executive officer Martijn van de Linde said: “ADT strongly believes that it is our responsibility to ensure the port user’s safety, this campaign is a great opportunity to raise awareness about safe behaviour and to confirm how dangerous our business can be when safety rules are not followed.
“Safety is a top priority for ADT across all its operations and lines of business. This new campaign is a reflection of an on-going commitment to safety and the sharing of this information with our valued customers.
“Every day Abu Dhabi Terminals facilities receives around 1200 trucks and this campaign aims to reach all of them. The safety of our staff, customers and stakeholders is an important consideration for all of us at ADT. This campaign will certainly have a positive impact on the safety practices in and around our facilities.”
