Port Of Takoradi Committed To Providing Quality Services To Clients

The ISO Coordinator and Corporate Monitoring Manager of GPHA, Garvin Amarvie has stated that management and staff of the Port of Takoradi are committed to working closely to keep the Takoradi Port within optimal levels of safety as well as deliver quality services to clients to achieve maximum efficiency by observing best international practices through ISO complaint activities.

He said the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority is keen on keeping with international standards of work, and as part of the requirements of the International Organisation for Standardization, for which GPHA is certified to.

Garvin Amarvie was speaking as part of an ISO self-auditing at the Port of Takoradi which was led by the Director of Keta Port, Dr Alexander Adusei who represented the Director General of GPHA.

“The kind of exercise that we embarked on today is part of the requirement that ISO expect us to undertake as part of the continual improvement program,” he stated.

According to Garvin Amarvie, GPHA is looking forward to a recertification and subscription to new standard, ISO 45001:2018 which borders on occupational health and safety.

“What we are looking up to is the recertification audit and we will move on to the new standard that ISO has created that is ISO 45001:2018 and it is in respect of occupational health and safety,” he indicated.

The Director of Takoradi Port, Capt. Ebenezer Afedzi explained what it means for the Port to be ISO certified.

“ISO certification is important because it gives our client confidence to work with us and it makes our own staff do what we write and say we do,” he stated.
