Ports are often challenging places to work. We may be dealing with a whole range of cargoes and working alongside a wide variety of people, including some who don’t speak English.Work at ports takes place throughout the day and night and in all types of weather. There are often pressures to load or unload a ship’s cargo quickly to catch a tide or to free up a wharf. Visiting drivers want to pick up or drop off their cargo as quickly as possible and get back on the road.This study was conducted to investigate the condition of health and security at ports around the waters of Malaysia.Port level health and security is important to avoid accidents in the workplace.The lack of exposure to this level of security will cause a serious accident in the port. These include a risk assessment of their activities. This should identify the measures they need to have in place to comply with their duties under health and safety law and reduce risks. Each port needs to develop working practices that will safeguard the safety and health of port workers in the light of its own specific circumstances.
