Falls from containers and the tops of vehicles are significant work at height issues in marine ports, as well the need for proper rescue and evacuation facilities from cranes.
If fall arrest equipment is being used, choose a method which will minimise the length and consequences of the fall, for example temporary vertical lifelines on ladderways, which can be removed when the work has been completed.
