APM Terminals Apapa has introduced onsite laundry services for the protective kits of its employees.

According to the Terminal Manager, Steen Knudsen, the onsite laundry service is a part of the terminal operator’s effort to continuously reinforce two of its core values, including constant care.

“With this initiative, we aim to support our colleagues in taking good care of their protective clothing without any burden to them. This will save our employees valuable time and energy.

“Our teams in Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) and Procurement have put in great efforts to ensure the laundry service will follow washing guide from the manufacturers to preserve the integrity of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs),” Knudsen said.

He said the terminal leadership team would continue to develop initiatives to make it easier for employees to do their work.

He noted that in the past year, the terminal operators have been investing heavily in improving their assets and facilities.

“We will also continue to make deliberate investments in the training and development of our people as the goal is to have an organisation that can truly deliver services of international standards to our stakeholders,” he added.

The Employee Relations Specialist of the terminals, Kingsley Udebor, said the introduction of the onsite laundry service by the company has been proactively initiated and driven by the terminal leadership team, which is willing to provide additional value to employees by ensuring that “operations personnel are always comfortably clad in clean PPEs, stress-free”.

“We hope that this unique initiative will further enhance employee experience in the terminal,” Udebor said.
