Safety observations and reporting

In order to achieve excellent results in safety, every organization should have a process in place to understand the exposure of risk prior to an accident or injury, and to accomplish this there should be a good coaching approach and a good observation framework. However, observing alone is not enough, reporting is also a must, as it is said that “if it is not documented, it didn’t happen.” 

Since the establishment of Black Sea Terminal in 2008, every employee has been assigned a task to submit and report Safety Observation every month to the safety team. This task is assigned because BST considers this as a major task for the well-being of its employee’s and the terminal itself.
