SCASPA - Creating the Total Port Worker – A Paradigm Shift

The Port Management Association of the Caribbean (PMAC), in keeping with increased globalization of the maritime trade, along with the creation of opportunities, unprecedented demands on human factors integration, resource management, information sharing, sustainable development strategies

and partnerships, demonstrates its responsiveness in envisioning the needs of the region by creating strategic goals  to promote and sustain the development of the industry, and formulating customized solutions for each member port, and its stakeholders.   

Safety Focus and OHS Training

how its doneA clear demonstration of this responsiveness is an initiative embarked on by the St. Christopher Air and Sea Ports Authority (SCASPA) in collaboration with the Caribbean Maritime Institute – School of Advanced Skills (CMI-SAS) and PMAC, which includes a comprehensive approach that will make safety the primary concern in its day to day operations.

On July 21, 2014, SCASPA launched a safety week entitled, “Safety First – Prepare, Prevent, Preserve”, in an effort to solidify a culture of “safety first” within every port of entry on the island of St. Kitts. The week was part of a comprehensive safety campaign that targets SCASPA employees, stakeholders and members of the general public.


During the week of intense activities a total 185 employees and stakeholders of SCASPA were provided with the competencies and knowledge to promote and maintain a safe working environment. Successful participants were acknowledged with OSHA outreach certificates of training or participation. The facilitators of the intensive one week program were Mr. Wycliffe Frater, an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Certified Trainer, and Mr. Osric Forrest, Director of  CMI-SAS, who emphasized the need for a paradigm shift towards an inclusive safety culture.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) outreach training programme provided an overview of various Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) topics aimed at promoting workplace safety, and making workers and stakeholders more knowledgeable about workplace hazards and risk management. It also provided in-depth information on the recognition, avoidance, abatement and prevention of workplace accidents.

PMAC’s Goal

The SCASPA programme, endorsed by the PMAC, is congruent with one of the Association’s strategic goals to facilitate improved training, quality systems and standards.

This strategic goal will provide sustainable management techniques and the use of flexible training solutions to meet the environmental and human resources needs of regional ports. Activities will see the implementation of a training system to empower regional port workers to achieve their fullest potential while facilitating strong quality systems throughout ports, by ensuring an established platform to monitor and evaluate training and certification standards

Way Forward

The promotion and implementation of an integrated and standardised approach will see the delivery of training and international certification opportunities to all regional ports. Under The theme "Training & Certification for the future – Embracing the Global Demands”

The training and certification solutions include but are not limited to Port Administration (shipping & logistics, shipping documentation & Customs procedure, warehousing operations, international trade, maritime law, human resource management, training of trainers, mentorship etc.); Stevedoring Operations; Port Equipment Operations; Port Equipment Simulator Training; Maritime Port Operations; Maritime Port Safety and Security; Navigational & Marine Engineering courses (STCW & Operational), Communication Strategies and Apprenticeship Multipurpose Rating - Transportation & Distribution.
