Improvement of Safety Regarding Handling of Dangerous Goods at Ports and Costal Facilities

Open Plan Consulting is charged with project management and Backstopping of this EU Twinning Project implemented by the Italian Coast Guard for improving capacities of the Turkish Ministry of Transport and Communication.

The main impact of the project will be the increased safety and security in Turkish ports and coastal facilities in Turkey. This is important first of all, for the persons working in ports, since they are always at risk due to dangerous goods. From a wider perspective, people living near ports will benefit from decreased risk, since the negative impact of an accident may cause loss of life or property for these groups. Finally, the same risks involve ships that are visiting Turkish ports and coastal facilities, so there will be a positive impact in terms of safety of lives and property.
