TRANSNET Port Terminals (TPT) received confirmation that the Ngqura Container Terminal (NCT) received its third consecutive year of a clean NOSA audit and five-star NOSCAR rating which is a first-ever achievement for this terminal.
The impressive score of 95% that was achieved is recognised as an international benchmark in the management of Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental risks.
For a business operating in a complex and high risk environment such as TPT, it is essential to have effective safety protocols in place that are understood by all employees, in order to minimise the disruption of service to clients.
“We have always been proud of how well our terminals have performed in the past annual NOSA audits but this particular achievement for NCT is a real milestone and one that the NCT team can be very proud of.” said Noxolo Thabatha, TPT’s NCT Terminal Manager.
Since starting operations in 2009, the Ngqura Container Terminal has complemented the South African port system as a transhipment hub. The terminal has increased South African trade with the world, generating much needed jobs in the economy while promoting international trade for SADC countries.
