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 in the induction.  The induction contains a number of assessment questions you must answer based on the material from 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 Harbour will be notified automatically.

The Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC) applies to all UK Harbour Authorities. The Code aims to improve safety in ports and to enable authorities to manage their marine operations to a nationally agreed standard.

As part of the Code there is a requirement for Harbour Authorities to appoint a Designated Person who has direct access to the Duty Holder (Warrenpoint Board of Directors).

Warrenpoint Harbour Authority currently employs 65 employees including both full-time employees and casual workers. Together with Seatruck Ferries Ltd, our agents and hauliers, over 200 people work daily in the Harbour complex. Their Health and Safety is of prime concern to Warrenpoint Harbour Authority. The Authority continues to reduce accident rates and encourages employees to upskill and improve work practices as part of a planned training programme.

Warrenpoint Harbour Authority prides itself in providing a safe working environment for employees and visitors alike.  The management and employees constantly strive to promote safety awareness with good teamwork, feedback and a structured safety management system.  A working port is a challenging environment and constant vigilance and example in safety management is a fundamental part of the operations management function.  Accident rates and environmental controls at Warrenpoint Port are benchmarked against best practice in the industry.  The emergency response plan is continually under review with Newry Mourne and Down District Council, and the emergency services to ensure that all procedures are co-ordinated and that meaningful practical exercises are undertaken.  Full scale emergency planning exercises are undertaken on a regular basis.

Warrenpoint Port with Carlingford Lough Commission held an Oil Spill Response Course in May 2016 when 20 personnel were trained and acted out a scenario with an oil spill exercise, this was attended by Newry Mourne & Down District Council, NI Environment Agency, NI Fire Service, PSNI.
