Description: 

Port authorities and operators face a number of challenges with respect to their role and impact in sustainable development of coastal areas. The development and adoption of international safety, environment and security standards by global bodies have emphasized that an effective management system must not only encompass operational activities, but also build quality, safety, health and environmental objectives and procedures into each process. It is with this challenge and opportunity that the Port Authority of Thailand decided to implement the PSHEMS in Bangkok Port and Laem Chabang Port.
