English term or phrase:port risers
the contractor is responsible that his staff wears the required protection when entering the Port Risers
Explanation: The context is simply too vague to come up with any more than a guess.
It sounds to me like this pertains to a ship, so port might very well be Backbord. Since the contractor's staff can enter the risers, it would stand to reason that this is some sort of a shaft or soffit (IOW, a structure large enough to accommodate a human body).
Port = Backbord (ship)
Riser = Aufstiegsschacht, Steigschacht
riser (ship) = Decksunterzug
My guess would be that this might be something like
backbordseitiger Aufstiegsschacht (Backbordaufstiegsschaft, etc.) or
but it's simply impossible to say without further context.
