|D O W N L O A D|
The present Code was released by the ILO with the intention to serve as a concise yet complete set of recommendations developed on the basis of the established good practice in the shipping industry. The advise provided in this volume will be useful to all persons and entities directly concerned with the health and safety in marine port works including employers and official authorities, equipment suppliers, manufacturers, workers and others.
It should be noted that some of the provisions of this document may not apply to all regions and all countries. Sometimes they will have to get adapted to the local conditions. The history of the international maritime shipping port industry dates back to the very earliest days of human civilizations. And since then the industry has developed so steadily. But the methods of handling shipboard cargo that used to be quite dangerous and arduous remained same until that time when the containers and ro-ro systems were introduced.
There have been numerous significant technical developments since that time. This volume starts with the general provisions followed by the information on the infrastructures of the ports and associated equipment, lifting appliances and their safe use, operations afloat and on shore, handing of the dangerous goods, PPE, health issues etc.
