Overview

This guidance document will help marine cargo handling employers and workers involved in roll-on roll-off (RO-RO) operations recognize hazards and prevent accidents, injuries and fatalities when loading or unloading ships in port. Hazards exist in RORO operations because the fast-paced work is conducted
around the clock and is sometimes conducted in inclement weather. Accidents relating to RORO operations may occur when various types of motorized vehicles travel inside ships, on ramps, docks, marshalling areas and parking locations. RORO accidents can be serious and it is important for all employers involved in RO-RO operations to implement their own safety rules and comply with those rules established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the local stevedoring association.
