CEO Morten Engelstoft highlights that safety culture is an integral part of the business.
A gateway to Caucasus and Central Asian markets, APM Terminals Poti plays an important role for Georgian economy and
has over the 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. This has now led to Poti Sea Port Corporation celebrating two years without Lost Time
Injury (LTI).
Visiting the terminal on the occasion of Global Safety Day observed throughout the company, APM Terminals CEO Morten
Engelstoft commented: “I hope that this strong performance on LTI can be used as a source for more energy to continue to
improve, to continue to identify the risk areas and to continue to take necessary steps to put in place the necessary controls.”
APM Terminals Poti has remained fully operational throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring effective and uninterrupted
supply chain flows in and out of the country and has done so while continuously focusing on keeping employees, suppliers and
partners safe. In this context, two years without incidents is an accomplishment the whole team is immensely proud with.
Safety is an integral part of APM Terminals strategy, which is based on the three pillars of “Safer, Better, Bigger”. While
Global Safety Day is an annual occasion for the company to reflect on safety and ways to improve its processes even further,
fostering safety culture is continuously of the agenda across the organisation.
“It is very important that we continue to work on the culture, not only in our heads, but also in our hearts to really make it
something that is an integral part of what everybody is doing and thinking about”, shared Morten Engelstoft.
