The Port of Helsinki on Friday published a new digital safety induction for the workers, said an official press release.

In future, all persons working in Katajanokka, South and West Harbours are required to complete the Port’s safety induction online.

The purpose of the safety induction is to go over the most important safety and security matters at the Port and instruct everyone working in harbour areas on safe working methods and the rules of the area.

The safety induction is a part of the induction of new Port employees.

In future, completion of the safety induction will be one of the prerequisites for the issuing of an access permit to harbour areas.

The employees of service providers operating at the Port are also required to complete the safety induction, especially if the company and its staff work in Port facilities or in the field areas of harbours.
