Risk management be implemented in harbor
Aalborg Harbor's new head of risk manager Anders Klitgaard completed training sessions for all harbor employees in January in a new management system, established to structure Aalborg harbor's handling of risks. The system is an essential part of the port's ambition to implement risk management.
"The purpose of the new management system is to work with risks in a broad sense, in a structural manner. That is, both economically, security wise, environmentally, etc. Within the system, our employees can find relevant information about what to do in specific situations. For example, they will be able to find information about what documentation requirements are in relation to a given task, Anders Klitgaard explains.
The preparations for the system were finalized at the end of last year and training for all of the harbors employees were held in January.
The idea is that the system will be in effect until week 16, where Anders Klitgaard along with a consultant and an environmental coordinator will have internal audits.
"In the future, we will continue to work on identifying new potential risk situations across three levels: strategic, operational and daily. Then we look into what the likelihood is that risk will occur. Finally, the identified risk gets a score according to how large the risk is, says Anders Klitgaard.
After these stages, the harbor will make improvements for each risk identified.
