Safety and quality standards are our highest priority

Safety

While ensuring efficiency in day-to-day operations, Xinghua adheres to the highest standards of safety and quality work processes. Stringent controls, safety training and drills, regular supervision and monitoring have been instituted to eliminate risks at the workplace and port premises.

Safety is our highest priority. It has been inculcated as a way of life and work. We review and monitor every work process. In 2016, our Port invested more than 800 hours of safety training for more than 3,500 individuals, including employees and subcontractors.

The re-evacuation drill was conducted in collaboration with the district Fire Bureau. It ensured our emergency rescue team and entire workforce understood the protocols and responsibilities involved.

CXP has achieved high standards with certification of quality management ISO 9001:2008.

Environmental, Social & Governance

Our port operations are regularly evaluated to optimise on the use of technology as well as for greater environmental protection, energy and water conservation, and waste reduction.

Energy conservation initiatives include replacing all light bulbs with energy-efficient LED light bulbs; switching off lights and heating/cooling equipment when not in use; and using heating water only when necessary. Employees also use less paper by going digital where possible. All printers are set at default mode to print on both sides, reducing paper usage.

Drivers of vehicles used at port, including trucks, forklifts and cranes, undergo training to minimise energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Stringent rules are enforced. These include no idle engines; no speeding, no carrying of cargoes exceeding a specified weight limit; and regular maintenance of equipment.
