Palma, 29/11/2016

The APB has approved the port ordinance which sets out the coordination plan concerning business activities in the areas of restricted access in port service areas.  It is the first ordinance to be approved by the APB and is also the pioneering ordinance on this subject published by one of the 28 port authorities that exist in Spain. A fact that reflects the importance the public body places on prevention and the occupational health and safety of employees.

This ordinance affects all business activities carried out in the port areas with restricted access in the ports managed by the APB (Palma, Alcudia, Mahon, Ibiza and La Savina) and the employees who perform the work. This coordination task has been carried out since 2009 and is now officially regulated.

The main coordination tasks include approval of the companies involved, authorisation of the activities they are to carry out, information and dissemination of the risks in port areas where work is to be undertaken, the risks that this work will entail for the adjacent areas and information management, among others.

In this way, the safety of port activities is ensured by fulfilling the legally established precepts set out in Royal Decree 171/04, of 30 January, which implements Article 24 of Law 31/1995, of 8 November, on the Prevention of Occupational Hazards, regarding the coordination of business activities ("BOE" [Official State Gazette] ]no. 27, 31-01-2004).
