||This information note gives practical guidance to working safely on the top of containers on ships. As the use of freight containers for transporting cargo at sea has grown, larger ships have been introduced which carry containers not only in holds but stacked on the deck. A fall from a stack can result in serious injury or death. Main topics covered: legal requirements, safe working methods; fall prevention systems; adverse weather conditions; training and instruction; construction, maintenance and use of access and safety equipment.
