Merchant shipping

During the stay in the ports, a lot of heavy goods are moved on board our merchant ships. This sometimes involves enormous tons of weight being lifted. That is not without risk. Are you aware of all the dangers on board? Do you communicate well with your colleagues about the work? For example, do you know where you stand during exciting activities? Keep yourself and your colleagues sharp! Take a look at the stories of colleagues on this site. Feel free to take a look at the other maritime sectors as well.
