Bangkok Port is one of the three ports that have attained Port, Safety, Health and Environmental Management System (PSHEMS) Recognition from PEMSEA. Its experience in the development and implementation of its PSHEMS resulted in concrete benefits and provided valuable lessons learned. Starting with the handling of its Dangerous Goods (DG), the port has exhibited remarkable willingness to improve the management of its core business processes, demonstrating that efforts to improve safety, health and environment (SHE) governance contribute to the triple bottom line of economic gain, social benefit and environmental preservation. The preparation of this case study was supported by the Yeosu Project and Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea, and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).
