Dangerous prevention requires foresight

In order to avoid danger situations, attention should be paid to the following issues:

Cargo handling

  • Observing the free fluid level during lifting and lowering
  • suitability of lifting equipment
  • lifting spots and division of weight
  • locking mechanisms in the correct position
  • inspected lifting devices
  • A permit must always be applied for separately for the use of a vehicle crane.

Vehicle traffic

  • The prevailing road traffic law and traffic rules are followed in the port
  • driving through loading or other stevedoring operations is strictly prohibited
  • staying overnight in a vehicle in the port area is prohibited
  • taking into account crossing traffic and level crossing
  • noting the possible slippery driving lanes when water vapour rising from the harbor basin condenses on cold surfaces

Repair and service work in the port area

  • Repair and service shall not be carried out in the waiting areas for dangerous goods or the storage area.
  • Working in Oil harbour requires a written permit.
  • Hot work carried out in the port area always requires a written hot work permit from the Site Manager of Port of Turku.
