A compact booklet with the guidelines to the health and safety in marine ports released by the Health and Safety Executive. Most of the ports are challenging objects to work. People may be involved in transportation of different cargo types and working with different people when performing this tasks. It should be taken into account that some of those people may not speak English.

The work in ports does not stop, people work day and night, in any weather conditions. They often work under pressure to load and discharge the cargo quickly in order to catch a tide; sometimes speedy loading and unloading is required to get a wharf freed. The guidebook was actually released to highlight the main hazards commonly found in marine ports.

It is primarily aimed at the worker but will also be interesting and useful to the stakeholders and visiting drivers - in fact to everyone visiting docks and working there on a regular or occasional basis since the content of this small publication clearly outlines what they shall do to ensure compliance with the law requirements.

They will find, in a compact and simple form, the information about tackling the hazards, know what to do should the things go not as they were planned to, and get familiarized with the major hazards associated with the lifting operations, transportation etc.
