Security Upgrade to No. 1 Wharf
Thank you for your co-operation and participation in the security upgrade at PrimePort during July 2016, when we introduced tagged access to No. 2 and No. 3 Wharves. We are now extending the upgrade to the western end (Gate House end) of No. 1 Wharf with effect from 17 October 2016. This means that entry to No. 1 Wharf from the gatehouse end would be ONLY via access tags. The pin pads at the vehicle entrance and pedestrian entrance will be removed by 17 October 2016.
Vehicle exit from the vehicle gate south of San Won's cold store on to Ritchie Street will also be by security tag ONLY.
Upgrade to the eastern end of No. 1 Wharf and No. 1 Extension Wharf requires installation of fencing and repositioning of gates as discussed in the Port Users Safety Meeting. This is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
What do you need to do? If you are a user of No. 1 Wharf, you will need to ensure that you hold a valid PrimePort Safety Induction. This can be done online - click here.
If you are a regular user of No. 1 Wharf, you will need to apply for a security access tag, if you have not got one already. The process is detailed here.
Application forms for access tags can be downloaded from the website and are also available from PrimePort reception during normal office hours, i.e. Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm. If you already have an access tag, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to No. 1 Wharf.
As per the Maritime Security Act
Security Level means the quantification of the degree of risk that a security incident will be attempted or will occur.
Security Level 1 means the level for which minimum appropriate protective security measures must be maintained at all times.
Security Level 2 means the level for which appropriate additional protective security measures must be maintained for a period of time as a result of heightened risk of a security incident.
Security Level 3 means the level for which further specific protective security measures must be maintained for a limited period of time when a security incident is probable or imminent, although it may not be possible to identify the specific target.
PrimePort will display its security level at the port gates in the event of Level 2 or Level 3 being declared.
Public entry is not permitted to any secure area of the port at any time.
All contractors and authorised visitors entering the secure areas must report to the relevant Security Gate or 'work site' manager. They must carry a tamper-proof valid photo ID, such as a driver's licence or passport. Unannounced visits must be cleared by a PrimePort representative before entry can be granted. Appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) must be worn at all times in operational areas. Any visitor without a current port safety induction, will need to be accompanied by an authorised person.
