PD Ports has ended March by landing an internationally-recognised standard for its commitment to health and safety.
The port operator received gold status from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the second consecutive year, and the third overall, for continuing to uphold the highest health and safety standards across its 12 locations.
PD Ports which has also recently been awarded CILT’s People Development Award amongst other awards. PD Ports CEO, Frans Calje, was delighted that the Company had received national recognition in each of its key focus areas.
“Health and safety is central to everything we do and our number one aim is for everyone to return home safely to their families at the end of the working day. Awards such as this recognise just how far we have come in driving a safety-first philosophy across the Group,” said Frans.
“There is real momentum within PD Ports at the moment, as demonstrated by four award wins in as many weeks, and we must use that momentum to continue our proven track record of boosting economic growth, attracting long-term private investment at no cost to the public purse and creating high quality, permanent jobs.
“This is a fantastic time for all involved with PD Ports but our work is by no means complete - people development, health and safety, and sustainability will remain at the top of our agenda as we continue to drive this business forward and support the government’s levelling up agenda.”
Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world leaders in health and safety practice and, every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running health and safety industry awards.
