Safety is our fundamental priority
Pembroke Port is a working port. Keeping our employees, clients, visitors and contractors safe on our property is paramount. By managing safe working practices throughout the site we can keep people safe, prevent damage to infrastructure and avoid lost working time.
As part of the Port of Milford Haven, we comply, so far as is reasonably practicable, with the Port Marine Safety Code which is a national standard that applies to all harbour authorities. The principle requirements direct ports to conduct risk assessments, implement a formal safety management system, employ properly qualified marine personnel and ensure that sufficient powers and resources are provided to manage the harbour safely.
The Port's robust Safety and Environmental Management System (SEMS) is internally and externally audited. This sets out the roles and responsibilities of key staff, as well as a suite of management procedures and work instructions designed to standardise tasks and reduce risk. We also drive forward new initiatives as seen in our Zero Harm Campaign which builds upon our already strong safety record and complements the investment we have made in our risk management systems and procedures.
We have an established system for reporting, recording and resolving concerns and incidents. This forms part of the organisation's Assurance Framework for the management of risk. Concerns and incidents can be reported using an Event Report form. The form includes completion and submission instructions, as well explaining the process for dealing with and responding to submissions.
