(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Port of Salalah (PoS) has received a Global Green Award at the Green Economy Forum held in Berlin recently. The port also announced that it has achieved over 300 days with no Lost Time Injury (LTI).

David Gledhill, chief executive officer, PoS was quoted in the release as saying, ''Respect for environment and adherence to health and safety are important aspects of our corporate culture and reflect a commitment to local communities.''

The Global Green Award was presented to the company in recognition of its achievements and sustainable practices over the past five years. 'In 2009, PoS had launched Switch programme to reduce CO2 emissions by 25 per cent within four years, and successfully achieved the mark through several projects, including automation of crane flood lights and campaigns to turn off vehicles during downti.

'The port records show an overall reduction of CO2 from 73,044kg in 2009 to 53,204kg in 2013.'

The company as a whole has achieved 300 consecutive days with no LTI, equivalent to approximately 4.5mn man hours, and besting the company's previous record of 170 days which had equated to 2.5mn man-hours. As the port operates non-stop and all year round, this equates to an average of 625 man hours, the release said.

''Safety is embedded in all aspects of our operations and is a shared responsibility by every employee. Likewise, this achievement is a shared honour for everyone,'' said Ahmed Akaak, deputy CEO at PoS.

''We continue to offer opportunities to engage employees in meaningful dialogue and provide theoretical tools to develop our staff, and earn better results in safety practices,'' said Mohammed al Maashani, head of HSSE at PoS
