The loss of containers continues to be an issue for container ship operators. Deck officers on container ships need to have an understanding of lashing systems and how they help restrain containers in a seaway.
This module on securing cargo awareness is designed to help deck officers understand the different forces that affect containers, whilst looking at ways to ensure containers can be secured and transported safely. After completing this module, the learner will be able to recognise the contributing factors that lead to containers being lost at sea.
This e-learning module is a part of a series of container modules.
