The South Carolina Ports Authority and its management team regard people as our most important asset and as such, accept responsibility for protecting, as far as reasonably practicable, the safety and health of our employees and others who may be affected by our day to day operations and processes. We recognize that the maintenance of a safe place of work and safe systems of work are critical to the continued success of The South Carolina Ports Authority and, accordingly, we view our responsibilities for safety and health as a priority in conjunction with our other corporate responsibilities. We will develop and promote best work practices to safeguard all our work places.
Our objective is to create a coherent structure of policy-related organizational and administrative measures with the aim of identifying and eliminating or mitigating hazards to the safety and health of our employees, contractors and visitors. The South Carolina Ports Authority recognizes that its objective can be fulfilled by implementing this safety and health policy and making adequate resources available to our employees. By their nature, some of our activities are not without risks but through the implementation of our safety and health policy through our managers, supervisors and employees, risks to health will be maintained at the lowest reasonably practicable level.
The management of safety and health is an integral part of everyone’s role. All managers, supervisors and employees are required to comply with the South Carolina Ports Authority’s safety and health policy and with the objective of identifying and eliminating or mitigating hazards to health and safety.
The South Carolina Ports Authority actively seeks the participation of employees, both formally and informally, through a process of hazard identification, correction and monitoring so that any issues relating to safety and health are brought quickly to the attention of managers and supervisors.
Please contact me with any safety related issues you may have while on our facilites.
