The inaugural “ICHCA Innovation in Safety” Award, sponsored by the TT Club has been won by APMT Buenos Aires for its mobile port equipment ‘Safety Logging System’. This innovation produced measurable proven results in incident reduction and behavioral responses from the workforce.
Judges were presented with a very difficult choice from the 23 impressive entries from companies around the globe. All the entries had one common objective: to improve safety in the cargo handling and related logistics supply chain. As all the entries definitely achieved this objective to one extent or another, the judges’ task proved difficult indeed. Overall, the judges looked for proven results, originality, and the ability for the innovation to have broader industry application.
The award was presented to APMT by the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization, Mr Kitack Lim, at the PSA sponsored Cocktail Reception held in the evening of the first day of ICHCA’s Conference at the World Trade Centre in Barcelona on 1 March 2016.
