According to her, the Health Safety Environment officer of the terminal said the management of the terminal recognised the potential havoc the disease could wreak on business.
The statement read, “It is this consciousness that has resulted in strict enforcement on the premises of the use of hand sanitizers, gloves and face masks, in addition to constant enlightenment on the importance of personal hygiene and social distancing.
“The management of PTML expressed appreciation to the Council for not dropping the ball even before the lockdown was imposed by government.
“Shippers’ Council commended PTML for constantly striving to maintain international standards and urged the terminal to keep up the good work.
