Work SAFE - Work SMART
As you all know from the previous communication by our
management, that "Work safe-Work smart" logo means to
achieve work mechanism that ensure our employees’ safety
on the ground in the same time achieving ACT KPIs.
ACT employees, over the previous years, had proved their
qualiﬁcations and responsibility to work side-by-side with the
Management in order to maintain workforce safety and reach
the required productivity.
The Work safe- Work smart has many meanings from my point
of view, brieﬂy as the following important points:
• Continues improvement
First, it has been proven from previous experience, that pre-planning for the tasks we are looking to
complete shall reduce the possible errors percentage and will speed up delivery time. It also
avoids you of doing the same tasks again which is wasting your time.
Our religion, science, and logic are agreed that the main element for doing any task correctly is
pre-planning. our holy religion prevent us of blaming fate and destiny on our own mistakes, instead
urges us to put our feet on the ground and faith in Allah to be with us while achieving our plans. This
required to have clear plans before implementation.
Secondly, the continues improvement, in addition to the many known aspects in this regard, one of
the important is inﬂuence on others from the personal and practical perspectives, which indirectly
will impact positively in our daily tasks.
Improvement in the workplace is important to reducing the daily-routine, as if the employees
repeated the same task in the same manner many times a day, they will lose their focus, which
may lead to increase LTIs, forbidden.
The improvement in the workplace are all aligned with work safe-work smart principal, therefore
ACT is open for new ideas suggesting by our employees that would improve our work methods and
reduce the routine which will accordingly increase our safety level.
ACT Lunches winter campaign distributing
blankets in Wadi Arabah
Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) continued
distributing aid to families in need in Wadi
Arabah, as part of its corporate social responsibility towards the local community.
The aid, which is part of the winter campaign
held by the company in southern areas of the
Kingdom, was distributed in coordination with
the director of the Wadi Arabah area and
included blankets for more than 75 families.
ACT will continue distributing food packages
and clothes under a comprehensive campaign
to other locations.
ACT’s social services include maintenance and
rehabilitation of governmental schools, the
Ekfal Taleb campaign, International Women’s
Day and Mother’s Day celebrations, the Ahl
Alkhair initiative, food package distribution to
families in need during Ramadan, and free
medical days, in addition to the company
caring for workplace health and safety.
Our Financial integrity
Financial integrity is key to our business and our reputation. To ensure ﬁnancial integrity,
we implement and maintain strong and robust internal controls.
We maintain a strong ﬁnancial reporting and control framework.
Financial integrity is key to our reputation among our stakeholders. We therefore practice a
strong culture of honesty, accuracy and compliance. We have a strong control framework in
order to ensure reliable internal and external ﬁnancial reporting, as well as compliance with law

We do not tolerate fraud.
Fraud is a problem for many businesses across the world. Fraud can take many forms, for example, theft, embezzlement, misrepresentation and falsiﬁcation of records. It’s a crime and exposes

Problem solving process
Problems are at the center of what many people do at work every day. Whether you're solving a problem
for a client (internal or external), supporting those who are solving problems, or discovering new problems
to solve, the problems you face can be large or small, simple or complex, and easy or difﬁcult. So being a
conﬁdent problem solver is really important to your success. Much of that conﬁdence comes from having a
good process to use when approaching a problem. With one, you can solve problems quickly and effectively. Without one, your solutions may be ineffective, or there may be serious consequences.
There are seven-steps for an effective problem-solving process.
1. Identify the issues.
• Be clear about what the problem is.
• Remember that different people might have different views of what the issues are.
2. Understand everyone's interests.
This is a critical step that is usually missing.
• Interests are the needs that you want satisﬁed by any given solution. We often ignore our true interests as
wwe become attached to one particular solution.
• The best solution is the one that satisﬁes everyone's interests.
• This is the time for active listening. Put down your differences for a while and listen to each other with the
wintention to understand.
3. List the possible solutions (options)
• This is the time to do some brainstorming. There may be lots of room for creativity.
• Separate the listing of options from the evaluation of the options.
4. Evaluate the options.
• What are the pluses and minuses? Honestly!
• Separate the evaluation of options from the selection of options.
5. Select an option or options.
• What's the best option, in the balance?
• Is there a way to "bundle" a number of options together for a more satisfactory solution?
6. Document the agreement(s).
• Don't rely on memory.
• Writing it down will help you think through all the details and implications.
7. Agree on contingencies, monitoring, and evaluation.
• Conditions may change. Make contingency agreements about foreseeable future circumstances
•How will you monitor compliance and follow-through?
• Evaluate the solutions and their implementation in a set period of time.
