QUALITY MANAGEMENT & ENVIRONMENT
Alkion Terminals operates under strict safety, health and environmental (SHE) procedures to ensure that products are being safely stored, loaded and unloaded. It is subject to the SEVESO guidelines and operates under a License to Operate (LtO) granted by the authorities. It hires experienced suppliers and contractors that endorse its professional SHE procedures. Suppliers’ activities are monitored on a regular basis, to ensure that operational checks, management systems and current SHE performances comply with Alkion Terminals criteria. Quality management is embedded in the operational procedures and a code of conduct is in place.
HEALTH & SAFETY POLICIES
SHE and operational procedures are clustered in procedure sets (hand books) which form part of the Safety Control System. The terminals have an emergency response plan implemented. The training program for operators includes training on health, fire prevention and emergency response. According to the SEVESO safety system, operators participate in toolbox meetings in which safety topics are discussed. The terminal is subject to audits both internally and externally (authorities and customers).
DISSEMINATION OF HSSE BEST PRACTICES AT PLATFORM LEVEL
Alkion Terminals has acquired a solid reputation through sound SHE management and regulatory compliance. Alkion Management is leveraging this established reputation and knowledge across all Alkion subsidiaries to apply best practices at platform level.
