OSHA Protecting Workers During Lashing Operations Fact Sheet


OSHA Fact Sheet - Longshoring in Marine Terminals
The lashing of containers and other cargo aboard vessels is dangerous work. Longshore workers lift and maneuver heavy gear in tight spaces with low headroom and work from elevated locations. Their work is often performed around moving equipment, in areas with poor lighting, and during unfavorable weather conditions. As a result, workers are at risk of potential injury from slips, trips, and falls, being struck and/or crushed by equipment or falling objects, and improper handling of gear.
