Commendation for Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal’s Safety Coordinator
10 November 2014
Chad Baker, Health, Safety & Environment Coordinator at Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal has received a Commendation from SafeWork SA for his contribution to Work Health and Safety at Port Adelaide’s container handling facility.
Earlier this year Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal nominated Mr Baker for the SafeWork SA Award, ‘Best Individual Contribution to Work Health and Safety’. He was selected because he had shown strong commitment and leadership on three major programs to improve safety: a traffic light control system for road train service lanes, straddle carrier guide lights on ship-to-shore cranes and a pedestrian swipe card access system for reefer row entry/exit.
All three systems have been extremely successful, significantly improving safety on site at the container terminal. Mr Baker was shortlisted as an award finalist, before receiving a commendation from the SafeWork SA judging panel at the Gala Dinner event which was held in Adelaide on Friday 31 October 2014.
About Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal
Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal was formed in July 2012 when Flinders Port Holdings gained 100% ownership of the Adelaide Container Terminal from DP World South Australia. Having rebranded the terminal as Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal (FACT), the move was a natural progression for the new owner and parent company Flinders Port Holdings which already had a 40% shareholding in the terminal. Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal’s strategic goal is to be recognised as the most efficient and customer focussed container terminal operator in Australia.
