The people who work for the Port of Tyne are proud of the Port and take pride in their job.
With 97% customer satisfaction, they are pretty good at keeping our customers happy. A positive approach to Customer Service is an essential requirement for everyone working at our Port.
As is a rigorous approach to Health & Safety. Everyone takes responsibility for ensuring we all go home safe each day and more than that, for ensuring that we continuously reduce the damage, waste and delays that can be caused by Health & Safety incidents.
The only Port to have won the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award four times, and fully compliant with the national standards in Health & Safety, OHSAS:18001, we believe that all accidents are preventable and that we can all help.
Our employee development and apprenticeship programmes encourage a culture of continuous improvement, backed by achieving the Investors in People Gold Award in 2015.
It’s in our mission to make the Port a great place to work and other initiatives, such as the Health & Wellbeing programme and the Better Health at Work Gold Standard, are keeping us on track.
With a commitment to achieve zero harm to employees and further support their health and wellbeing, the Port of Tyne is working towards a strategic target of having no reportable injuries by 2020 and making Health and Safety its number one priority.
