Peel Ports inks £200k contract with STC INSISO

Peel Ports inks six-figure contract with STC INSISO

STC INSISO has announced an extension to its six-figure contract with Peel Ports for health and safety assessment.

The Aberdeen-headquartered problem-solving company has renewed the contract following completion of health and safety health checks of all Peel Ports’ container terminals.

According to the company, the extension will now bring the overall contract value to £200,000 ($242,000) and will include health checks at the port operator’s non-container ports.

Under the contract, STC INSISO will carry out thorough review of Peel Ports’ approach to health and safety at each of its ports, centring around in-depth interviews with personnel across all levels of the business. In addition, the company’s team will review key policies, while observing and assessing activity at individual ports.

“After successfully carrying out health checks for Peel Ports’ container terminals, we are excited to get started on this next phase of the project,” said Steve Holmes, Chief Performance Officer at STC INSISO.

“We approach this kind of project by examining the challenges and opportunities placed on a company through industry regulations and the scope of work they are delivering, the components of the safety management system and how effective they are, and what arrangements are in place to support the safe delivery of work.”

Peel Ports has already implemented recommendations from the health checks conducted by STC INSISO across its container terminals – including rolling out a 2-day modular training programme for H&S leadership, and supervisory competency development to 100 of the team based at the Port of Liverpool.

“The progress made across the group in terms of Health and Safety performance has been significant, we however wanted to utilise STC INSISO as an independent organisation in assessing where the business has got to and what more it can do to achieves its aim of Zero Harm,” added Peel Ports Group EHS Director, Chris Ingham.

Since the start of 2022, the Port of Liverpool has set a number of record-breaking achievements across its container terminal division.

In March, the port handled a total of 52,300 containers (89,400 TEU), beating its previous record high of 47,200 containers (81,750 TEU) in October 2019.
