Subject publication was prepared and released by the Hong Kong Marine Department. The document has been in use for decades and the contents prove useful to the crews. This release of the volume reflects all developments in the field of cargo handling on board marine ships. The intention of the authors was to provide readers and of course crew members of the ships in the first turn, with the required guidelines and essential technical knowledge of health and safety.

This knowledge includes the basic safety features and associated equipment, safe access arrangements and correct use of the cargo handling equipment. Due attention shall be paid to establishing and following the safe working practices by all parties involved in handling cargo. Handling containers has been addressed in the separate, newly added, chapter, where the authors has provided a good analysis of the health matters that are normally related to the cargo handling activities on board ships.

It should be noted, however, that the contents of the document must not be treated as a formal substitution of the formal requirements and/or their legal interpretation. This is guidance; for the regulations and rules you should go to the relevant rulebooks and standards.
