New Guidance for Docks – ACOP

Source: HSE

The new guidance (Safety in Docks: Approved Code of Practice and guidance – L148) replaces the existing Approved Code of Practice (COP25), which has been withdrawn as part of the revocation of the Docks Regulations 1988.

Topics covered include workplace transport, falls from height and lifting operations. The new ACOP is aimed at both the larger end of the industry as well as those in smaller locations (eg small harbours, quays etc).
