New report on the risks posed by fumigated shipping containers.

A new report from EU-OSHA highlights the safety and health risks to workers in ports who come into contact with fumigated shipping containers. A key recommendation is to prioritise risk assessments before containers are opened and to enforce legislation on labelling of containers.


The report reviews the legislation and identifies gaps in the existing knowledge in this area. It also provides practical examples and preventive strategies to improve current practice and workers’ safety and health.
