Industrial safety and self-protection

Industrial safety in the installations of the Port of Tarragona is a commitment that is intrinsic to the carrying out of our Port activity. In order to reaffirm our commitment to a secure and effective management, the Self-protection Plan for the Port of Tarragona (Pla d'Autoprotecció del Port de Tarragona - PAUL), also known as the Internal Emergency Plan for the Port of Tarragona (Pla d’Emergència Interior del Port de Tarragona - PEI), was approved in 2013. This document has been prepared in accordance with the appropriate regulations established by Decree 30/2015, approving the catalogue of activities and centres required to adopt self-protection measures, and also in line with the Basic Self-protection Regulations, in accordance with Decree 393/1997, which establishes the content of these measures.

The Self-protection Plan and the tasks for preparing the Port Safety Plan specify the actions of the organisation and the means required to deal with any events that might pose a risk to life, the environment and/or property.

Lastly, it should be noted that, in matters of quality in port safety, the process of emergency management certification UNE-ISO 22320 will begin now in 2017.
