HSSE Initiatives in GAC Samudera Logistics and Shipping
As the official transmission station of the GAC Spirit and the values
that GAC stands for, The GAC Corporate Academy is delighted to
recognize GAC Samudera Logistics in their initiatives to share and
strengthen the culture of HSSE in their organization.
"The best way to build and sustain a culture of HSSE in our company
is by structuring it on Behavior Based Safety. This is achieved by
personal empowerment that enhances our knowledge with hands-on training.
In our company, GAC Samudera Logistics, people have open
communication about training and share knowledge about safety
information though our installation safety information board.
During training, we encourage people to be aware of how important of
their safety, health, and environmental practices are. We want to make
our safety culture a way to increase productivity as well, every day and
everywhere not only within our work environment. Because the practices
that are good for people and good for the environment are good for
business too. During our training, all employees have stated their
commitment to implementation of safety by signing a big safety banner.
The banner is a proof of our commitment, and is seen by every employee
every time they enter the office, because it has been installed in the
area where employees gather.
The purpose of all readable information, such banners and signs, are
to keep our employees aware that safety really is an important aspect in
GSL’s working environment. No one is allowed to neglect or ignore HSSE,
as they are reminded of the consequences. People must be aware that
they are responsible to ensure other employees are safe, and safety must
start from ourselves."
