    APM Terminals wins 2016 PMA Safety Awards

    Both APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles, and APM Terminals Tacoma received top industry safety honors at the respective Pacific Maritime Association’s (PMA) annual Safety Awards Banquets for the Southern California and Washington State regions. On March 10th APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles received a total of four safety awards at the 67th Annual PMA Area Accident Prevention Committee Safety Awards banquet in Long Beach. APM Terminals Tacoma was awarded First Place in both the Washington Area and Coast-Wide Container Category C operations (100,000 -499,999 man-hours hours annually), at a March 2nd banquet. APM Terminals Tacoma handled 229,000 TEUs in 2015.

    APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles won the PMA Coast Accident Prevention Award in the category of Terminal Operations, Group A (for terminals with over one million man- hours worked annually), for the best Safety Performance achieved in 2015 in all operations at US West Coast ports. This marks the seventh out of the last nine years that APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles has earned this distinction. The Los Angeles operations also won the Southern California Area Container Terminal Safety Award for Group A, in addition to receiving the Coast and Southern California Area awards for Three Year Incident Rate Reduction. The Lost-Time Injury Frequency (LTIF) rate at APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles was 2.19 per million man-hours worked for the year in 2015, a 14% improvement over last year’s award winning 2.54 LTIF rate. APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles’ LTIF rate also was 14% lower than the Southern California PMA region average.

    The 484-acre APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles facility is the world’s largest proprietary container terminal, with throughput of 2.48 million TEUs in 2015. APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles also ranked first in the annual JOC productivity study among North American terminals for 2014, with 92 crane moves per hour with a vessel alongside.
    The PMA safety awards are based on reported injury rates per man-hours worked, and are categorized by geographic area and by size. Awards are presented for the Southern California ports, and also for the Washington and Oregon ports. Container Terminal “Category A” are those facilities representing more than one million man hours worked per year. Local area awards are presented in each of the terminal categories based on injury rates, and the Coast awards are given in each terminal category for the best safety performance on the entire West Coast.

    The PMA negotiates and administers maritime labor agreements with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU). PMA membership is composed of shipping lines and stevedoring companies that operate in California, Oregon and Washington. To qualify for an award, a member company must actively participate in the PMA safety program and report all OSHA-recordable occupational injuries and illnesses and all applicable man-hours during the preceding year.
