Wharf Safety

                                                LHI Sea Freight's Operations Manual has a Wharf Safety and Management Plan.


Our Stevedore and Operations Managers have the responsibility to ensure safety on the wharf at all times. We seek the assistance of the public in noting and observing the following procedures.



  • Read and comply with signs on the wharf. Please note public access to the wharf is not permitted during berthing, unberthing and cargo unloading and loading operations of the Island Trader.

  • Charter boat operators are requested not to berth until the ship is fast alongside the wharf.

  • Charter boat operators must ensure the safety of their passengers according to instructions issued by the Lord Howe Island Board.

  • Accommodation owners are requested to advise their guests to take care on unloading days, especially in the vicinity of the wharf.
