Introduction
Ports have been categorized as one of the highest risk sectors to work in. This is due to the many safety hazards workers face on a daily basis. The main health risks are caused when moving loading vehicles, unloading and loading cargo. These health and safety risks may be reduced if workers are constantly reminded and are aware of the many hazards that they face.

This short course of 6 hours will focus on the various health and safety risks workers are facing.

Port and terminal workers can be exposed to more health and safety risks than strictly related to the function they have. The surrounding can be hazardous.

With this course we look at the broader aspects of these risks in order to diminish the chances of accidents and keep workers available for the processes hired for.
