Ports of Sines and Algarve Authority (APS) received certification for its Management System for the Ballance of Workers' Professional, Family and Personal Life, awarded by Bureau Veritas in accordance with standard NP 4552:2016.

This certification, a pioneer in the national port sector, represents the recognition of the company's concerns regarding good labor practices, professional support and personal development, and services and benefits, which meet the needs of stakeholders.

The scope of certification includes managing the balance between professional, family and personal life in the activities of handling vessels, cargo and passengers, managing domain areas, infrastructure and information systems and exercising the powers and prerogatives of the Port Authority.

This system recognizes that APS takes into account not only the professional dimension of its male and female workers and their constituents, but also the social and personal dimensions, particularly of those with family responsibilities. It also allows monitoring the impact of equality and conciliation aspects, as well as mitigating any associated risks.
