Jurong Port has been at the forefront in the push for higher safety standards since the enactment of the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Act by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) in 2006.
We have established a WSH framework that identifies, mitigates and eliminates unsafe conditions, and fosters ownership of risks by all port users. Our WSH framework and best practices are applied across all terminals operated by the port.
Today, Jurong Port is a BizSafe pioneering company and a BizSafe Partner registered with the Singapore Ministry of Manpower. We are also a key member in the Workplace Safety and Health Council (Logistics and Transportation), regularly sharing safety information and best practices with industry partners.
For its safety management, Jurong Port won the "Achievement in Safety" Award at the Lloyd's List Asia Awards 2009.
Jurong Port was certified a compliant port under the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, administered by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), in 2004.
Jurong Port places high priority on port security, and constantly ensures that security measures are in line with international maritime security requirements to detect and deter international terrorism that threatens operations. This gives our staff, customers, and port users greater assurance and peace of mind when working in the port.
