Sector specific guidance No. 4: Working on the car/trailer deck

Working on the trailer deck can be risky, not just because of industrial accidents but also short and long-term damage to health.

The sector specific guidance starts with a review of the various risk factors, followed by a review of possible solutions and finally some examples.

The risk factors associated with working on the trailer deck can differ widely from vessel to vessel and it is therefore best for solutions to be described in a workplace risk assessment which individual vessels are required to make. We hope that these notes can help in this.
