Driver Safety on Port
Kia ora Port Pass Company Administrator,
Please forward this message to people in your organisation who need to be aware of the Driver Safety campaign. You may disregard this message if no one from your organisation drives on Napier Port.
Napier Port’s priority is to make sure that everyone who comes here goes home safely every day. The port is a safe working area that requires everyone who drives to follow the rules, especially the 20 Km/h speed limit. These rules keep each other safe and we need you on board to play your part.
Driver Safety Campaign
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing a safer workplace, and with the return of cruise season traffic we’re focusing again on driver safety right across the port. From 1 January 2023, we’ve introduced an enforcement policy (available to read in full here) to help support the following rules and make Napier Port safer:
And always follow the road rules, including:
- Respect the right of way
- Follow port traffic signs and road markings
- Never overtake moving vehicles
- Don’t use your phone when driving
- Never drink or take drugs and drive
- If you feel tired, take a break.
We’re supporting this driver safety campaign with signage at both entrances and handing out flyers to port users entering Napier Port.
What happens if I breach a rule?
We have recently introduced a set of new consequences for health and safety breaches of the practices identified within an earlier driver safety campaign. Since the launch of that campaign we have seen some improvements across the Port in driver safety, however, there is still room for considerable improvement.
After an extensive consultation process, a full overview of the new enforcement policy and the consequences of each type of breach is available here (same link as above).
In short, drivers breaching a rule will be given a verbal or written warning and have this logged in the Port Pass system. A third or significant rule breach may result in a one week or longer ban from driving on port and will require the person to re-sit the Napier Port health and safety induction.
Finally, a kind reminder that all port users and visitors are part of a larger team when it comes to safety on port. Please treat your fellow port users and employees, particularly our Port Security team members, with due courtesy and respect as we work to keep each other safe.

Sustainability aligned with global goals:
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
