In the present document, all interested readers will see what the national maritime representatives have agreed on and also what they recommend as best practice once it comes to working on the vessel's trailer deck. The reason for publishing this sector specific guidelines is that dangerous situations can arise at any time when aboard a RoRo vessel.

Working on the trailer deck can be especially risky because of industrial accidents and, more importantly, due to the damage to health. However, the legislation that is currently in force does not include any specific guidelines aimed at preventing human injury while carrying on their duties on the trailer deck. This guidance is mainly focusing on working on the trailer deck. In the content of the document only passing reference has been made to ventilation installations since these are basically described in the IMO's MSC circular 729 of 4th July 1996.

The content of the guidance was initially submitted to the DMA, i.e. Danish Maritime Authority for their pre-review and all of their valuable comments have found due reflection in the text. That is the reason why we can easily recommend this document for familiarization of the newcomers and even to the experienced professionals.
