Ports, by their very nature, are dangerous environments. Port of Belize Ltd is fully committed to ensuring the safety of all Staff and Visitors to the terminal, to ensuring zero harm, and we continue to work on building our safety capacity and culture further. We were pleased to have had satisfactory safety performance so far in 2022, but like all systems, this is subject to continuous improvement and the job of safety is never finished. The Port, guided by local and international conventions and best practices, is responsible for policy and protocol definition, implementation, and enforcement. Our Staff, Contractors, Customers and Visitors are responsible for complying with the safety policies and protocols. We therefore kindly ask for your utmost cooperation to ensure that all persons leave the Port in the same condition in which they arrived
Safety is a shared responsibility, and all (Visitors and Staff) are encouraged to proactively report any breaches, concerns, observations, incidents, accidents, injuries or near-misses to PBL Management for our follow-up actions.
The Security of the facility is governed by full compliance with ISPS (International Ship and Port Security) standards. For both Safety and Security reasons, the below protocols are in place and must be observed.
Those found not to be complying with the above protocols will be cautioned by PBL Security or Safety Officers, who will report such infringements to the PBL Chief Security Officer, the Safety Officer and CEO. Those who refuse to follow the instructions of PBL staff will be expelled and may be banned from the facility, as may repeat offenders. These guidelines are for the overall well-being of every authorized visitor to the Port and the Port’s Staff, and we thank you in advance for your proactive cooperation.
Safety is a shared responsibility, let’s be SAFE together!
