Abstract Preliminary report for communication to governments, with a view to a first discussion at the 1978 International Labour Conference, of the question of the revision of this ILO Convention (No.32) in view of the rapid technological changes in loading and unloading ships in ports. The report contains a questionnaire addressed to national authorities of ILO Member States; replies will be summarised in a second report. Aspects covered: technical developments and safety measures (developments in cargo handling (container traffic, barge carriers, etc.); ILO action with regard to safety and health in dock work; activities of other international organisations); application of the Convention (law and practice in various countries; problems encountered); conclusions: Convention No.32 is manifestly out of date and urgently requires revision. The text of Convention No.32 and the Protection against Accidents (Dockers) Reciprocity Recommendation, 1932, are appended, together with extracts from the Report of the ILO Meeting of Experts on Safety and Health in Dock Work (Geneva, 13-21 Jan. 1976).
