Jebel Ali port meets UN security standards
Dubai, May 27, 2013
Jebel Ali Port has received the UN's Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) Certificate, a benchmark for security management systems.
The certificate was awarded following an inspection visit to Jebel Ali by a team of UNDSS experts who evaluated the security measures implemented by DP World, a global marine terminal operator, with particular focus on emergency response plans, security awareness for staff, security briefing for security personnel, and documentation procedures, a statement said.
Mohammed Al Muallem, senior vice president and managing director, received the certificate from two senior UNDSS officials, Tamer Hammouda, security advisor, and Mosa Elayan, security associate.
Al Muallem said: “Ensuring the safety and security of our people, our customers and assets is integral to DP World’s commitment to safeguarding the national interests of the UAE. We are honoured to receive this important certificate from the UNDSS and take this opportunity to reaffirm to all our stakeholders that we will spare no efforts to keep Jebel Ali the safest port in the world.”
Hammouda said: “Ensuring 24x7 safety and security is a big challenge for any organisation, and particularly so for a regional logistics hub such as Jebel Ali with all its complexities. We are impressed by the high levels of safety and security we found implemented at Jebel Ali Port, even exceeding standards set by UNDSS in some areas.”
The UNDSS oversees the UN’s security management system and its work includes setting the standards for best practice security policies and operational procures systems. - TradeArabia News Service
