Maritime Bulk Terminal Gdynia Ltd (Morski Terminal Masowy Gdynia Sp. z o.o. — MTMG) in Poland is located at the main entrance to the Port of Gdynia and is directly connected to the railway and road communication systems.
Operating at the Port of Gdynia, MTMG – Morski Terminal Masowy Gdynia as a universal terminal renders 24h services of reloading, storing and sorting of bulk commodities like coal, coke, ore, grain and feedstuff, biomass, sugar, minerals, aggregates, fertilizers and also liquid cargoes (including chemicals of the 3rd, 6th, 8th and 9th classes according to the IMDG code), crude oil and its derivatives.
MTMG has been awarded ISO 9001:2009 and ISO 22000:2005 HACCP certificates granted by Polish Chamber of Foreign Trade Certification and Bureau Veritas Certification.
OHSAS 18000 is an international occupational health and safety management system specification. In Poland companies in most cases decide to introduce the certification of quality, environmental and food safety systems, according to HACCP, which are dedicated to clients of the certificated owner.
OHSAS 18001:2007, an Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series for health and safety management systems, is dedicated to companies and personnel working inside the area of certificated owner. The standards for health and safety management systems are much more restrictive then for others, which causes the process of preparation arduous and expensive. Two years ago, MTMG — as the first in the port of Gdynia — started to implement the system by managing and overseeing the key areas: recognizing danger and risk rating, training systems, communication, operation control, emergency procedures, monitoring and enhancement of safety.
As a result of this extensive work, on 11 September 2014, MTMG’s Occupation Health and Safety System, was appreciated and recognized as compatible with OHSAS 18001:2007 standards. The certificate testifies that MTMG promotes a safe and healthy work environment within its area. The certificate is proof that MTMG is a socially responsible company.
