Safety and Security

Health, Safety and Environment Management System

DP World Maputo maintains a Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) Policy that is appropriate to the nature of our activities to safeguard the Health and Safety of our employees, contractors, visitors and other users of the terminal as well as to protect the Environment.

All employees and contractors have the responsibility to work in a manner which will protect their own safety and that of those working around them and to protect our Environment.

As DP World, we are proud to have been able to maintain a record of ZERO Fatality and ZERO Serious Injury since beginning.

We have successfully managed the transition from a Reach Stacker operation to a Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) operation since December 2017 including intensive training of operators, again, without any human injury or damage to equipment in a new yard and new Traffic Plan.

We look into 2018 and ahead with optimism, with more positive changes coming including the reconstruction of the existing berth and commissioning of 3 new Quay Cranes.

The new office building as well as the new Engineering infrastructure, which are coming up within the next three years, are some fundamental highlights as well.

All of these changes will bring with them serious challenges into HSE and Security as well, which we are proudly ready for.

Emergency Preparedness and Response – Drills and Exercises

Our staff, contractors and clients are always refreshed by HSE and Security drills so that they can be ready to respond to any emergency situation in an orderly and safe manner to avoid aggravating and escalating the situation unnecessarily.

Security Management System

We were certified for ISO 28000 – 2007 in 2011 by TUV Rheinland, which is the International Standard for Supply Chain Security, as the first company to achieve such certification in Mozambique, as result of our commitment in ensuring the security of our terminal, assets, employees, contractors and clients and their cargo within the supply chain. 

We have been re-certified again in 2014 and 2017 in recognition of our effort in continually improving security in our terminal.

Gate Searches

As part of the requirements of the ISPS Code – International Port and Ship Security Code, at the Gate we implement random searches of persons, parcels, vehicles and trucks coming in and leaving the Terminal.
