Stazioni Marittime has adopted an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) in accordance with the requirements of the international standard ISO 45001, which has been certified by Rina. The company's decision to adopt this system stems from the desire to create a healthy and safe working environment and to better manage all aspects related to the health and safety of workers and all those who frequent the company's operational areas, including passengers, suppliers, visitors and port operators, through the involvement of all company components.
Purpose of the SGSSL is the management of passenger disembarkation and embarkation operations from/onto cruise ships and ferries
Stazioni Marittime has the task of managing, from an operational and system-structural point of view, a large port area destined for use in connection with the company's activities, on which there are some buildings where activities relating to the cruise and ferry terminals are located, with particular reference to:
  • Ponte dei Mille
  • Ponte Doria
  • Ponte Colombo
  • Ponte Caracciolo
  • Ponte Assereto
This management model, which is fully integrated into the Management and Control Model 231/2001, enables Stazioni Marittime to:
  • know and manage the health and safety issues related to its activity through the adoption of specific procedures and management control instructions
  • identify and correctly apply the binding legal requirements, reducing the risk of sanctions by regulators
  • adopt its own Health and Safety policy and define consistent objectives and responsibilities for improving its performance
  • inform, involve and promote dialogue with all those involved (employees and external stakeholders), thanks also to the greater transparency that the system guarantees
  • identify and satisfy staff training needs, increasing their skills and motivation
    periodically review the company's performance according to the principle of continuous improvement

If the reported dangerous event requires the intervention of the appropriate external bodies (fire brigade, ambulance, police, harbour master's office, etc.), the coordinator of the emergency team will notify the appropriate bodies by telephone, calling the single emergency number:



If the type of emergency in progress makes it necessary to evacuate one or more areas, the Emergency Coordinator will give the evacuation order
Once the order to evacuate the premises has been given, the staff of the emergency team will move to the defined places to manage the evacuation in the best possible way and will act to evacuate those present as quickly as possible towards the safe places, taking into account the location of the epicentre of the emergency and the routes for emergency and service vehicles and the evacuation routes reserved for people as shown on the special plans posted on the Terminal premises.
At this stage, everyone must follow the instructions given by the team's staff for the management of emergencies who, in such an occasion, must avoid the onset of panic.
In the presence of disabled persons or persons with walking difficulties, the emergency team personnel will evacuate them.
In case of need for evacuation, the emergency team personnel must guide passengers inside the Terminal towards the safe places by using the escape routes and emergency doors identified by appropriate signs, avoiding lingering in the immediate vicinity so as not to create blockages and hinder the flow.
The escape routes to be used in closed environments are those clearly indicated by signs; their routes are also visible on the plans displayed in the various Terminal areas.
From this moment on, the emergency team is mobilised via radio and prepares the quay in a suitable way in order to reserve an area, possibly delimited by a white and red tape to be reserved for rescuers and emergency vehicles.

Since power supply may fail during the emergency,

In the event that the premises are filled by smoke, during rescue and evacuation operations, it is advisable to protect your nose and mouth with a handkerchief, preferably a wet one.
As smoke and most combustion products are lighter than air, walk stooped over and, where necessary, crawl along the ground.
Having to cross or approach flames, if possible, ensure that your clothes are thoroughly wet.

When the anomalous situation occurs and the emergency team deems it necessary to clear the uncovered areas. The persons involved, invited to leave the areas, must move away as quickly as possible from the centre of the emergency, using the preferential routes appropriately identified, following the following indications:
  • exit swiftly from the buildings and follow the marked routes to the assembly points
  • avoid panic and follow the instructions of the staff
  • do not take luggage or other personal effects with you that may hinder your escape
  • do not delay by retrieving luggage or other personal effects
  • do not hang around nearby to "snoop" on the evolution of the situation.
  • do not hinder the operations of the rescue teams
  • always give priority to emergency and fire-fighting vehicles.
  • in order not to hinder rescue operations, vehicle owners should remove their vehicles as far as possible from the areas affected by the emergency.
