Global Safety Day 2021
APM Terminals Poti plays an important role for the Georgian economy and has, over past years, invested in modernising its infrastructure and fleet and increasing its capacity. Its successful operations depend heavily on its safety culture, which is based on continuous improvement and empowerment of all its staff to effectively own the safety agenda. As a result, Poti Sea Port Corporation celebrated two years without a Lost Time Injury (LTI) during a visit from the company’s CEO, Morten Engelstoft for Global Safety Day in September 2021.
In 2017, as part of the UN Global Security Week, APM Terminals Poti launched the project to raise awareness for road safety, and to send the message to the trucking community that APM Terminals cares for their health and safety. The goal of the programme was to increase truck drivers’ safety awareness while on the terminal premises and while driving on public roads in Georgia.
In 2018, the project won the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award for the Best Project in the Human Rights Category: Increasing Safety Awareness for Truck Drivers. The award is organised by the UN Global Compact Network and the CSR Club of Georgia.
