Health & Safety

We are committed to providing a safe working environment for all our employees and Port Users with a zero tolerance for accidents.

As part of MHCL’s commitment to zero tolerance to accidents, we work to ensure that standards in the operations processes are in line with expected environmental, occupational health and safety regulations.

An operational area in the port is where stevedoring activities are conducted once cargo is received. It is a busy place and, like any production and processing plant, it is a potentially hazardous workplace due to the nature of cargo being handled at the port.

To ensure a healthy sustainable environment, MHCL’s undertakes the following

Reducing the impact of noise and dust and to adhere to our occupational health and safety of the workforce;

Appropriate personal protective equipment, training and medical care should be available for all shifts;

Comprehensive tests like silicosis test are conducted annually on all staff working in the port. Clearly defined actions to rectify potential problem areas, including well run training and awareness programs are conducted on an annual plan;

Comprehensive evaluation of fire risk, fire equipment, fire detection systems and evacuation plans are conducted by local council authority;

We expect external environmental impacts to be minimised by controlling spillages or effluent into the lake.
