Port Safety and Health Audit manual

It is estimated that at least 50 per cent of cargoes handled by port personnel are classified as “dangerous goods” because they have the potential to cause damage to human life, environment and/or property. Also the other cargoes may cause damage or injuries if they are not handled properly by qualified personnel and if international safety standards are not complied with.

This manual was developed to assist regulatory and port authorities, port managements, berth/terminal operators and other parties involved in port operations in assessing their compliance with ILO standards as well as their own policies and national requirements.
