Completing the Vessel Works induction
If you are working on the hardstand or wishing to access the Vessel Works facility, including Bridge Wharf, the hard stand, and the Cross Road Ramp, to undertake works then you need to complete a site specific induction prior to entry. Each staff member will need to complete this induction.
Please review the material, take the short quiz, and then enter your details. Following completion of the induction you are welcome to visit the office and collect your personalised security access card. 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. 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. High visibility vests can be borrowed 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 ship repairers and public indemnity insurance.
