At TEAMWORK we recognise the importance and demanding nature of the role of the Port Facility Security Officer. In most cases the role is seen as a ‘bolt on’ to the individuals main source of employment. In some businesses this is not a major issue and the additional workload of the role of the PFSO causes no stress or difficulties. In others it places such a burden on the individual that they no longer wish to be the PFSO, which has created the need to train further individuals at an additional cost to the company.
Now the initial phase of the implementation of the ISPS Code has passed Department for Transport (Maritime Security) are embarking on inspections of port facilities under their authority to review the port’s progress. At TEAMWORK we believe these inspections will in the early stages be of an advisory nature and not a
compliance audit, but make no mistake failure to comply can and will result in severe penalties being imposed. We must never loose sight of the fact that the ISPS Code is seeking to protect our National Security and failure to operate to the highest possible levels will simply not be acceptable.
