Safety is priority one.

Ports America is committed to providing a safe environment for employees, contractors and visitors at every facility. Our safety policies are based on the concept of Zero Harm—with absolutely no tolerance of unsafe conditions or behaviors. We believe:

  • All accidents and injuries are preventable.
  • No environmental damage is acceptable.
  • Nothing is more valuable than the health and safety of our employees.

Our safety management system integrates visible leadership by senior management, written safety standards, exemplary environmental procedures, and continuous safety improvements. And our innovative SAFE PORTS program (Safe Actions for Everyone—Practice, Observe, Remember, Think, Safety) reinforces our safety priorities, incorporating four vital elements:

  • Leadership
  • Safety standards (for pedestrians, mobile equipment, working at heights, load handling and contractor management)
  • Behavior and supervision
  • Support and services
