Dubai-based company Centre Point Logistics has held a safety workshop for members of its high-level and middle management
Led by safety management expert Er Kannan, the ‘Global Best Practices in Safety Management in Open Yard/Supply Chain Industry’ training event was intended to emphasise the importance of safety procedures in minimising occupational hazards.
Addressing attendees at the Hotel Courtyard by Marriott Dubai, Kannan stressed the importance of the PEEPO (people-environment-equipment-process-organisation) model in developing safe procedures and effective risk management in the logistics industry.
“The UAE is uniquely positioned as logistics and supply chain hub in the Middle East,” said Centre Point executive director Saleh Abdullah Lootah. “Due to country’s burgeoning logistics industry, Centre Point Logistics has taken advanced measures to ensure world-class safety standards across its operations, and to promote the wellbeing of employees, partners and stakeholders.”
