Traffic Safety in Marine Terminals
This online engineering PDH course provides recommendations as well as descriptions of mandatory safety and health standards to ensure traffic safety in marine terminals.
Traffic incidents are a serious problem at marine terminals, where heavy equipment is used to load and unload ships and move freight from one place to another in the terminal. The work is fast-paced, conducted at any time of the day or year, and often performed in inclement weather. Vehicular traffic endangers any worker walking in a marine terminal.
Many work-related injuries and fatalities occurring in marine terminals result from traffic incidents. For this reason, traffic-safety controls can help individuals avoid traffic incidents and prevent or reduce work-related fatalities and injuries. In addition, reducing traffic incidents can also increase the productivity of the marine terminal.
