13 July 2021 | Infrastructure
Lost-time injury frequency rates are the number of lost time injuries within a given accounting period relative to the total number of hours worked in the same period.
“Despite facing the current challenges presented by the pandemic, Namport continues to adhere to all health protocols whilst still ensuring the effectiveness and safety of its workforce,” said Elias Mwenyo, Namport acting executive: commercial services.
The last time the entity reported an injury at work was on 14 February 2021.
“Since then, we have not recorded any loss time injuries. This outstanding performance is directly linked to the collective continued commitment to safety and adhering to workplace procedures and policies displayed by the Namport workforce,” Mwenyo continued.
He explained that improve SHEQ performance for Namport equally means improved internal work environment for port users, as they are affected by improved safety behaviour inside the port.
“With less injuries, productivity levels are expected to improve for port users. Safety is everyone’s responsibility. Let us join hands and ensure we remain injury free for the remainder of the year. As our slogan says, let’s ‘Tulongeni Pamwe,’” Mwenyo concluded.
