Health & Safety InductionS
All employees, contractors and visitors to Warrenpoint Harbour are required to complete a general Induction to the site.
Our online safety induction programme is aimed at ensuring that ALL personnel entering Warrenpoint Port have an understanding of the minimum requirement when either visiting or working on site.
The induction covers important Organisational, Health and Safety, Security and Environmental information, as well as other useful information regarding the Port.
Please work through the induction at your own time and pace, and pay close attention to the information provided. The induction contains a number of assessment questions which you must answer based on the information provided in the induction. You must view the induction in full and answer all the assessment questions.
Once you have viewed the induction in full and completed all assessment questions, Warrenpoint Port will be automatically notified.
An induction must be completed by each individual coming on site, even if more than one person is coming from the same organisation.
Applications for passes are currently free, however due to rising administrative costs this may change and we will notify applicants in due course. If you have lost your existing pass, a fee will be incurred to renew the access. The cost for a replacement pass is £20 which will be payable upon collection of the new pass. The induction pass is valid for 24 months.
