BEHAVIOUR AND PPE
GOLDEN RULES AND LIFESAVERS
The Golden Rules set the boundaries and give us guidance to ensure that we all go home safely, every day. The Golden Rules apply to all people, all the time. The Golden Rules are set out below:
The CentrePort Lifesavers are just that, the actions required of all people to keep our lives safe. The Lifesavers apply to all people, all the time. The Lifesavers are set out below:
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
The standard personal protective equipment for working on CentrePort wharves and in the port secure areas is as follows:
You are permitted to wear closed in shoes instead of safety shoes (steel/composite toes caps) only when your business:
– is in an office that does not require you to go into a warehouse, shed or operational area (e.g. TSL office, cruise terminal)
– will not require you to exit a vehicle at any time.
The employer of any worker is required to supply the personal protective equipment (PPE) required for the work that is to be undertaken. Port users must ensure that:
Task- or area-specific requirements
Task- or area-specific personal protective equipment must be used as follows:
EXAMPLES OF HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING REQUIREMENTS
Requirements must meet the high-visibility standards as per ‘Australian and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 ‘High-visibility safety garments — Garments for high risk applications ‘
FITNESS FOR WORK
Drug and alcohol policies
People under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not permitted in any CentrePort work area.
All port user companies are required to have active drug and alcohol policies that include testing arrangements for employees and requirements for other people they bring onto the port. CentrePort may ask a port user company to enact their drug and alcohol policy at any time where we have reason to believe a person they have brought onto the port is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
As a condition of entry CentrePort may test any person for drugs and alcohol:
No alcohol may be brought into or consumed within operational areas of CentrePort. Alcohol may only be consumed within non-operational areas of CentrePort with the express permission of the CentrePort CEO and must be in compliance with the requirements in the CentrePort drug and alcohol policy and procedures.
All operators and contractors on the port shall have fatigue management strategies in place to ensure that all personnel are fit for work and meet, as a minimum, the regulatory rest requirements for their roles.
CentrePort has zero tolerance for all physical and verbal aggressive or harassing behaviours. Anyone considered to be in breach will be reported to their employer and are likely to have their port access revoked. In these situations a stand-down time will be considered for each individual situation. Depending on the severity of the behaviour, the person may be declined access indefinitely.
