Health, Safety & Security

23rd May - 21st June & 27th June - 2nd July

Why this course?

Health, Safety & Security is an ever-present priority for port managers and port operators. The health and safety of people working in ports is an essential part of operational excellence and sustainable growth for a port authority or company. Therefore, it is crucial to have a well-thought health & safety programma at hand, that finds support throughout the whole organisation. The port authority and port companies each have their role in matters of port security. Both must take up their responsibility in creating a safe and secure port environment.
