On 20th September 2021, a safety milestone was reached at APM Terminals Pipavav (India), with the terminal marking 1,000 days without Lost Time Injury (LTI). This is the second time the facility celebrates such accomplishment, even more significant considering the impact of cyclone Tauktae on port operations earlier in the year.
APM Terminals Pipavav, located in the Indian state of Gujarat, successfully completed 1,000 days of safe operations with no casualties or Loss Time Injury (LTI). This major safety milestone comes as a result of continuous training, monitoring, and supervising of all operations, as well as employees’ proactive initiatives to embrace safety in daily work in line with the company’s safety culture.
The accomplishment is of special importance considering the impact of cyclone Tauktae (classified as “extremely severe”) on operations at the Port earlier in the year.

With safety at the core of its operations, the port has implemented various safety initiatives, with collaborative efforts in areas like transportation, suspended loads and lifting, working at heights, stored energy, and control of contractors.
