Darwin Port's Permit to Work System applies to all Port Users. Work planned for Landside (Wharf Deck) and/or Seaside (Vessel) within a Darwin Port workplace may require a Permit to Work, prior to commencement.

This System is important to assist in planning work, managing communications, deconflicting concurrent work activities and determining potential hazard controls to support safe systems of work across all Darwin Port sites.
