The Port of Tyne has picked up award for its high safety standards.

The organisation was given a Gold award by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the second year running.

The accolade highlights the company’s commitment to excellence in health and safety.

Andrew Moffat, Port of Tyne’s chief executive officer, said: “To be awarded Gold for the second year running is a real source of pride for the Port.

“We are committed to ensuring the highest standards of health and safety across our sites and this Gold Award is testament to how seriously we take that commitment.

“Safety is the number one priority for the Port of Tyne and we are constantly working to improve our performance. This includes campaigns raising awareness, targeting common causes of injuries and encouraging near miss reporting.”

Last year the Port received a Gold Award for the first time after gaining the Silver Award in 2013.
