Managing and reducing the risk of our operations

The key mechanisms by which we manage our operational risks are by providing information and guidance, developing, risk assessments, and undertaking audits of our operations.

We ensure we have fit for purpose centrally led policies and procedures for all sites to follow, to ensure our operations remain legally compliant and we seek to reduce environmental risks.

Environmental risk assessment of our operations is also a central part to our compliance management system and the continuing rolling programme of internal audits we carry out to identify continual improvement opportunities. We place a great deal of emphasis on sharing expertise and best practices across our ports to ensure we’re operating at best consistently across the company.

The delivery of the correct training and development opportunities is also key to managing our environmental risks, to ensure all our personnel have the required competencies, especially for those with compliance responsibilities.
