ICHCA launches safety award
London, United Kingdom
The cargo handling industry's representative body has launched a safety award to highlight innovation in improving safety standards in cargo logistics around the world.
The inaugural award will be presented at a special reception during the ICHCA International Conference in Barcelona on 1 March.
ICHCA International chairman David Bendall says the world's supply chains are becoming ever-more complex and developing rapidly in new locations. "The demands on our cargo-handling infrastructure and operations are increasing and safety above all must not be compromised. We are keen, therefore, that participation in our initiative be industry-wide. The award is open to all those - an individual, team or company - involved in cargo logistics."
Entrants must show that a product, idea, solution, process, scheme or other innovation has resulted in a demonstrable improvement to safety. Empirical evidence or corroborative support to establish enhanced safety in a defined situation or solution to an issue must be presented. The submission must be original and will be likely to have applications in wider industry circumstances, where appropriate.
The deadline for entries is Friday 12 February 2016 and full details of the entry process and judging criteria can be found here
