All Port users are required to complete an induction prior to entering operational areas. Anyone who has not undergone a full induction will have to report to the Port Gatehouse on Carkeek Street to apply for a Visitor’s Pass. All visitor’s must be accompanied by a fully inducted person, or under escort of a Port Nelson Employee.

This is to ensure all persons entering Port Nelson are familiar with Port rules and safety regulations such as what to do in the event of an emergency, who to contact and how to evacuate if necessary.
