HEALTH & SAFETY

Occupational health and safety is the top priority at Modern Terminals. All of us at Modern Terminals assume responsibility for safety and health at work.

We engage with employees, contractors and customers to increase awareness and make continuous enhancements to our health and safety approach.

We have a well-developed occupational health and safety management system in place is periodically benchmarking to global terminals to ensure that best practices are implemented in our terminals.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Engaging with the communities in which we operate is critical to the sustainability performance of our business, and we actively support NGOs in their community initiatives. Our contribution to the community mainly focuses on three areas: youth development, promoting environmental awareness, and promoting sports to lead a healthy life.

Modern Terminals Summer Fitness Programme, our annual community initiative, was launched in 2017 to encourage healthy lifestyles. The programme provides sports training and development activities to children aged 8-14 from low income families in Kwai Tsing and CSA, as well as the children of our employees.

In order to establish a long-term connection with all participants, Modern Terminals Summer Fitness Programme Alumni has been established in 2019 to continue to provide members with sports-related and youth development activities.

Modern Terminals actively participates in Project WeCan.

The programme is to encourage companies and individuals to partner with Hong Kong’s secondary schools in improving the overall performance of their students.

It covers a wide scope, ranging from enhancing teaching capability and learning motivation in schools through to help with life-goal planning, care and counselling and parent engagement on an individual basis.

Since 2011, we have been supporting the improvement programmes of the Cotton Spinners Association Secondary School. Our funding has helped the school to obtain professional academic assistance from the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well as developed various plans to cater for the students’ needs. We also provide training and exposure opportunities to pupils through many activities, including talks, visits and summer job placements.

Volunteering is a fundamental way of demonstrating a commitment to society.

The Modern Volunteer Force (MVF) was established in 2007 to organise ad-hoc and long-term programmes. While our MVF voluntarily donate their time and energy to serve deserving causes, Modern Terminals also supports with donation matching schemes.
