Qatar holds workshop for seaport workers; boosts West Bay tourism

To ensure that all seaports are properly maintained and manned, the Permanent Committee for Seaports Management at the Ministry of Interior launched a special training course for a full week in partnership with the Police Officers Institute for port workers. The training course included topics on the proper methods of monitoring, as well as inspection protocols and increasing security awareness.

In attendance were 24 officers from the committee’s departments. Abdul Amir al-Faraj, the Kuwaiti expert in maritime arbitration, is the lecturer, with representatives from the Ministry of Interior (MoI) as well as other agencies. The course also aims to help assess different kinds of security threats, risks, weak points, violations, and more. This includes access authorisation as well.

The training program aims to boost port workers’ efficiency, as well as addresses different work needs to help develop the capacity of the workers. According to the Gulf Times, Chairman of the Permanent Committee for Seaports Management Brigadier General Dr Abdulhadi Mohamed Zabin al-Dosari hopes that the course will also assist in “raising the scientific and practical level, and developing awareness among participants in this field.”
