Fremantle Ports is putting people first through a pioneering program that addresses the importance of safety in the workplace.
Ports have the potential to be dangerous places. Fremantle Ports implemented a Safety for Life program committing management and staff to integrate safety across all operations and to provide a safe and healthy environment for employees, contractors and visitors.
In 2016, Fremantle Ports also hosted its first inaugural Safety Games. They emphasised the importance of planning and teamwork and were held as part of Safe Work Australia’s National Safe Work Month. It represents the innovation and success of Fremantle Ports. Fremantle Ports maintains a high standard with regular reviews of their safety systems, as well as submitting them for external audit.
Safety for Life aims for the realisation of no damage at all levels within the port through the adoption of safety as the organisation’s number one priority. Workplace safety at Fremantle Ports continues to improve,with the 2017 results the best in 12 years.
Fremantle Ports’ Safety for Life Program is a representation of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals:
3- Good Health and Wellbeing
8- Decent Work and Economic Growth
Our Future Goals:
Improve on annual industry benchmarks on health,safety and wellbeing for our employees and port users.
