Port Pass H&S Induction Renewal Process Update
Our team are readying to go-live with an important Port Pass system update early next month – a new online Health & Safety Induction renewal process for all port users. As part of Napier Port’s access requirements, all Port Pass card holders will be required to renew their H&S Induction every two years.
Why is a regular H&S induction renewal necessary?
At Napier Port, our overriding health and safety goal is to ensure everyone who comes to Napier Port goes home safely every day. Our online Health & Safety Induction is usually one of the first interactions we have with port users and as such it plays a key role in helping us to achieve this goal.
Port’s are a dynamic environment and there is always a lot of change going on. This is particularly true in the area of Health & Safety and the never-ending process to improve and updated health and safety processes. The introduction of a regular H&S Induction renewal process is another tool to help ensure all port users stay current with Napier Port’s own requirements.
The current cost per Port Pass card of $40 is not changing. This cost covers not just the card, but the whole infrastructure system and service that supports it. It also includes the initial H&S Induction that all port users must complete in order to receive their Port Pass card. Each card is still valid for five years.
We are introducing an additional administrative cost of $5 per online H&S Induction renewal (for each Port Pass card holder). Once the new Induction renewal process is live on the Port Pass website next month, all Port Pass card holders who have held their card for two or more years will be required to complete the renewal process.
Company Administrators will be notified which specific card holders are due for their online Induction renewal and will then have the ability to process a bulk payment for all of these renewals in one go. For example, five individual Induction renewal payments can be processed as a single $25 charge.
Specific instructions outlining this process will be sent out closer to the go-live time, however, in the meantime we are excited to share a sneak preview of the new login portal that will be available to all Company Administrators.
A new Company Administrator login portal
As part of our Port Pass system update next month, Company Administrators will receive a unique company login code (requiring a password reset) and gain access to the new portal to help administer their organisations’s Port Pass card holders. The portal (screenshot below) will allow administrators to easily track and help process the following information:
- Upcoming H&S Induction expirations (every two years)
- Incomplete Induction renewals
- Upcoming Port Pass card expirations (every five years)
- Uncollected Port Pass cards
We believe this portal will help simplify the Port Pass administration process and make it much more efficient for Company Administrators to manage their own users. We are looking forward to rolling out this update next month too.

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).
