Abstract The aim of this manual is to help appointed independent and trained auditors in the following areas: to identify strengths, weaknesses and gaps in national and port regulations and policies with regard to safety and health, enforcement, monitoring and reporting, facilities and services, and human resource training and development; to complete a comprehensive audit report, detailing any non-conformities detected; and to prepare a proposed action plan for the management to rectify detected nonconformities. An audit checklist is provided for each of three ILO instruments: the Occupational Safety and Health (Dock Work) Convention, 1979, the Occupational Safety and Health (Dock Work) Recommendation, 1979 and the ILO Code of Practice on Safety and Health in Ports (2005).
