Working on site at Vessel Works?
If you are working on the hardstand or wishing to access the Vessel Works facility to undertake works then you need to complete a site specific induction prior to entry.
A single induction for one company is not sufficient for all company staff, so all individuals must complete an induction to the site.
The Vessel Works facilities includes the Bridge Wharf, Vessel Works hardstand and Vessel Works Cross Road Ramp.
How our online induction works…..
On completion of the online induction there is a short quiz (at the end to make sure you have read the full induction), followed by a personal or company registration. Following completion of the induction you are welcome to visit the office and collect a security access card, which will be customised and allocated to you. A small fee may be payable.
If you are just visiting Vessel Works for the day then you can be hosted on the site by another person that has completed the induction. That person must remain with you whilst you visit the site and you must not undertake any work during your visit. This person must sign you into the site using the Visitor Registration booths outside the Vessel Works offices, at the Vessel Works office itself. Minimum PPE requirements are listed at the booth, with loan His Vis vests available from the office.
If you are visiting the site for a single day you can collect a Visitors access card from the management office.
A refreshed induction is required every 12 months on the anniversary of your or your companies ship repairers and public indemnity insurance.
