We are now at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. For the latest COVID-19 updates for our customers, port users and the community click here.
Anyone carrying out non-routine activity on sites controlled by LPC must have an LPC Authority to Work. Some non-routine activity must be carried out under an LPC Permit to Work.
An Authority to Work or Permit to Work requires 2 working days’ notice to process.
Non-routine work: LPC defines routine work as work carried out by LPC personnel and Lyttelton Port Users that can be anticipated on any given day. Routine work is expected to be carried out under a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS). Non-routine work is anything else.
Some work involves high risk and must be carried out with an LPC Permit to Work. Permittable work includes:
• Crane lifts – Wharf
• Diving in Port operational areas (use Authority to Work on Water)
• Hot Work in common Port areas (coming soon)
To apply for an LPC Authority or a Permit to Work complete the form via the APPLY NOW links above (top right).
The LPC Permit Office will review and confirm acceptance with an LPC Authority to Work or Permit to Work.
The LPC Permit Office will endeavour to turn around short-notice requests in time to avoid undue delays.
A copy of the Authority to Work or Permit to Work must be carried with the work party and produced on request by any LPC agent. When the work is finished the work party must contact the Permit Office to confirm completion.
