APM Terminals Spanish Gateways celebrates Global Safety Day with activities for employees and customers
Under the motto `We lead with care’, Valencia, Barcelona, Castellón and Gijón get frontline work closer to raise awareness on safety at terminals
APM Terminals Spanish Gateways has engaged all its workers today in learning about the variables involved in frontline works in a terminal, to know the risks and how to facilitate the tasks of those who perform them. It has done so on the occasion of Global Safety Day, held under the slogan We lead with care in Barelona, Valencia, Castellón and Gijón.
During Global Safety Day, each APM Terminals Spanish Gateways facilities invited attendees to the yard to show how work is carried out at heights, to experience container lashing, transport, suspended loads, stored energy and contractor management, which are the five categories of risks that usually compromise safety at a container terminal. And it has done so through virtual reality and Gemba walks, which are visits based on the Lean philosophy to understand processes, dialogue with employees and identify opportunities for improvement. The event finished with safety reflection sessions with the workers.
