Working With Us


We are committed to enforcing strict adherence to safe work practices at all times.

The protection of our employees, contractors and visitors across our operations is central to everything we do. We regularly engage contractors to carry out work at our sites and Information about development, maintenance and tenant related services can be found in the sections below.

Works Approval

All tenant and non-tenant organisations planning works on NSW Ports lands outside tenanted areas must be approved by NSW Ports prior to commencing works on site - including works to third party utility, telecommunication and road network assets. We request that the following information is provided to the appropriate NSW Ports site asset management team for review and approval.


  • A description of the proposed works, including:
    • Nominated lead contractor and any subcontractors
    • Preferred programme
    • Work methodology
    • Full list of plant to be mobilised to the site
    • Details of where any materials excavated will be taken plus a commitment that all imported material will be Virgin Excavated Natural Materials (VENM) classification (written evidence will be required)
  • Prepare a Traffic Management Plan for all works that will require any work in the road corridor, or impact normal road operations.
  • Complete a Dial Before You Dig (DBYD) search and liaise accordingly with any potentially impacted utility owners.
  • Organise for all staff attending site to be inducted – refer to Induction Requirements information below.

Induction Requirements

Any contractor working on NSW Ports land must follow our induction protocols, prior to commencing work. At NSW Ports we work closely with a group of trusted contractors who are required to complete a comprehensive induction process, and this applies to contractors contracted to carry out works at the request of tenants on NSW Ports land.

For contractors that are new to the NSW Ports sites, the first step is to email your details plus all relevant information relating to the job to the relevant email address below, depending on which site you are working at. Once all details are submitted, a project manager will contact you to get the induction process started.

The NSW Ports induction process involves a series of steps including having the company set up in Rapid Global (the NSW Ports induction management system). Only when this is complete can individual staff members commence the induction process. Anyone arriving on site to carry out works must be inducted and approved prior to arrival – there are no exceptions to this rule. The induction process is managed by the project manager (PM) assigned to your job.

For more information on the induction process and requirements please refer to Key Contacts below.
