Gangway security

Effective gangway security is an important subject in today’s world and this video is intended to provide guidance for personnel performing gangway security duties. The procedures and regulations for gangway security are there but, to be effective, they need to be applied properly and consistently. The gangway security personnel’s role in that process is crucial.

The programme is designed not as training, but to act as a reminder of the basics involved in controlling access to vessels from the quayside. The video covers the roles and responsibilities of gangway security personnel including:

  • The control of people and equipment to and from the vessel;
  • The searching of personnel and/or baggage;
  • Reporting of security incidents or breaches;
  • Assisting with the control of emergency situations.
