All the new recruits need to undergo the basic safety induction training which include psychology of safety, emergency response, basic fire fighting, basic first aid & safety hand book. These courses provide general idea about the terminal & mindset of the employees is tuned for terminal requirements of safety. We have structured skill based training programs for operation staff & have installed crane simulator which has facility to provide training to QC, RTG & RMG operators. This help in reducing the risk of incidents during the training of operators as they get well hands on judgment before they go to actual equipment. The competency is checked on basis of theory & practical & then operators certificate is issued which is valid for a year. Equipment operators need to undergo annual refresher training for renewal of the operator’s certificate. The training systems are not only for the employees but also for the contractors & outsiders.
For the contractors, the specialized courses are designed according to the services they provide & being delivered which covers safety requirements & terminal rules & regulations. Ongoing training & awareness programs are helping terminal to achieve better productivity/ efficiency, customer satisfaction, reduction in property damages/reduce damage costs, managing risks, better teamwork, and adding value to terminal activities.
