Tampa Cooperative Safety and Security Initiative (TCSSI)
Port Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay International Terminals and Ports America developed the Tampa Cooperative Safety and Security Initiative to increase safety awareness throughout the Port. The concept was initially developed as a local platform to augment and to coincide with safety initiatives mandated by Ports America-Tampa in all of their terminals as well as with the safety practices of other Florida-based terminals. This program is innovative in the State of Florida as it provides plans and safety requirements that all members of the organization agree to comply with at all times. These members include the Port, Ports America, trucking companies, oil terminals, surveyors, shipping lines, shipping agents, line handling companies, bulk terminals, railroad companies and many other related companies with a stake in the port.
