Safety: LPC wins awards
Watch Video on Straddle Tip Alarms

LPC is the proud recipient of the Chartered Institute of Transport and Logistics Safety Made Simple Award 2023 for our team’s efforts to reduce the number of tip alarms while operating our straddles at the port.

Straddle tip alarm data was reviewed by our Health and Safety team after the Maintenance team led a digital project that resulted in the reporting, managing and identifying the risk of straddle tip events.

What LPC found was that thousands of tip events were triggered every month. These tip alarm numbers were shared with the team in the container terminal and the drivers of the straddles. LPC reviewed the data, implemented training programmes and updated daily tip alarm numbers with staff to bring the numbers down.

The results were immediate. Tip alarms dramatically reduced from up to a thousand a day to single digits.

This project is an excellent example of collaboration between LPC Health and Safety, Maintenance Engineering, Digital Operations Management and the container terminal workforce to achieve excellent outcomes and keep our crew safe to go home safe every day.
