Addressed to all who manage, or are involved in, dock operations or all those who supply labour to them. Documents the undertakings incumbent on any company to meet the key requirements of health and safety law. With references to relevant legislation.

The essential core of the guidance is covered under four basic question headings: What do we have to do?; What about people who are not our employees?; What should we be looking for?; and Do we have particular responsibilities? In presenting the general hazards, the book further advises on essential procedures that are central to safeguarding all dock operators, such as consultation and information provision. Also considers pertinent issues regarding control of contractors.
