Best Practice for Cargo Packing and Handling

Graham Marshall - Sunday, January 08, 2012

The good folks over at the Marine Safety Forum have recently released the Best Practice for the Safe Packing and Handling of Cargo to and from Offshore Locations.

Cargo handling incidents are still being identified as the cause of many injuries each year even though industry approved packing and handling guidelines have been in place for over 10 years.

Recent incidents have identified three main categories that non conforming cargo fall into are:

- Dropped objects;

- Snagging Hazards; and

- Unsecured Cargo.
