Our Safety Culture


Western Stevedoring’s full commitment to safety is exemplified through our safety culture and our commitment to people. Western works to continuously develop and improve the safety principles that support all of our operations. We strive to achieve a safety culture and embedded safety behaviors exceeding any legislative requirement. We continuously evaluate and update our safety management system; worker and supervisor training; and worker interaction programs to meet the needs of the industry and of our workers.

Western’s safety philosophy is to transform our “can do” approach to “can do safely” while achieving outstanding results. All work is carried out in accordance with applicable legislation and regulations. Should incidents happen despite all of our best efforts, we aim to provide quick responses to address any problems and their root causes in a transparent and positive manner. We understand that the company’s long term success depends on building a culture and reputation for providing outstanding service at the highest safety standards.
