What is the 'Safety' initiative?
'Safety' is a training, information, prevention and control initiative to ensure proper compliance to regulations and good practices on safety.
The aim is to ensure the hygiene and health of workers and avoid accidents. Safety requires special attention in port environments as many different operations are performed by many different workers.
The Port Authority for Safety
Through the Intermodal Logistics Training Consortium (CFLI), Venice Port Authority (VPA) organises safety and accident prevention training courses several times a year.
These courses are divided into levels and target specific types of port operations and their particular safety requirements.
In order to more broadly disseminate a culture and sensitivity towards safety, VPA organises a special event, the Safety Day, and dedicated seminars.
In addition, the VPA monitors the safety of port and associated activities 24/7. It conducts more than 650 yearly inspections in the terminals during loading, unloading, transshipment, cargo handling and deposit, on the quayside, on board ships, in warehouses and in the yards.
