Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), manager and operator of Khalifa Port Container Terminal, set a record for safety by completing 4 million man-hours without a lost-time injury, equaling 603 days since the last incident.

The accomplishment is a new record in health and safety for ADT. Reaching 4 million man-hours is rare across the industry and reveals ADT’s commitment to maintaining a zero-accident work environment.

“ADT does not compromise on safety; as a world-class global container terminal, safety governs every aspect of how we do business,” Chief Operating Officer Neil Watson said. “This remarkable safety milestone could not have been achieved without the exceptional teamwork and attention to detail by all ADT employees, its contractors, and sub-contractors; but most of all, it could not have been achieved without everyone following the correct safety procedures. Everyone has worked hard as a single team for this recognition."

Watson said workers have been active in the whole team in reporting unsafe acts and conditions and acting before they become serious. ADT also has set a strict health, safety and environment policy and conducts audits and regular safety briefings to ensure safety. Part of ADT's safety culture includes emergency drills, regular safety talks and in-house training programs.
