Ship and Port CBR Security
The majority of port authorities and shipping organisations have well rehearsed plans and procedures within their Business Continuity Plans (BCPs) for dealing with Fire or an Explosive device in or near their premises or on board ship. However, dealing with a Chemical, Biological or Radiological event requires a full understanding of how these hazards may affect staff, visitors, passengers, property infrastructure, the surrounding area and business continuity.
Naturally occurring outbreaks of biological agents such as the Norovirus (Norwalk) on passenger ships and in hotels have been well documented over the past few years. This has invariably led to costly clean-up operations, cancellation of cruises, loss of bookings and business continuity, with the consequent huge loss of revenue and potential for costly litigation. CBR Terrorism must also not be discounted and would have the same consequential result. We have expanded our already successful CBR building Security Surveys to include ship and port facilities. We believe that the initial survey is critical in identifying strengths and weaknesses from a CBR threat perspective, both at ports and on ships.
