In the last five years, we have investigated 21 incidents in New South Wales involving workers unpacking shipping containers. Three of these workers were killed. The most serious incidents involved unpacking sheet material such as glass, stone, sandwich panel and timber. If freight isn't packed with safe unloading in mind or if it becomes unstable during transit, workers unpacking it can be at risk of serious injury or death. If you unpack shipping containers, keep your people safe. Work with suppliers to ensure the load is appropriately packed for safe transit and unpacking.
Ask them to use racks or crates and to secure freight with wrapping or strapping. You can also ask suppliers to use containers that are open at both ends or have an open top for safer access. Plan before you unpack the container, and consider what equipment you will need. Choose an area with flat ground and unpack at ground level where possible. Be careful when opening the container in case the load has shifted. Keep looking for risks as you unpack and adjust your plan as conditions change. Instruct workers about safety procedures.
And make sure they are appropriately experienced and supervised. Use a crane or a forklift with attachments such as grabs, spikes or slippers to avoid manual unloading. Never allow people in or around the container while using machinery to unload. If you're using a crane and it's necessary to guide the load, make sure it's from a safe distance using a tagline. Never allow workers inside the container if there's any risk of objects moving and trapping them. Where there is a risk, brace freight with suitably rated restraint devices such as props, braces or frames.
Become a Shipping Tycoon Invest in Your Own Container Fleet
In 1913 Aristotle Onassis was importing tobacco into Argentina from Turkey. By the age of 25 he was a millionaire, but soon realized that the shipping companies were making more money shipping his tobacco then he was selling it. So in 1930, Onassis purchased his first ship, and started on his way to becoming the richest man in the world. In the 1950s Onassis built the world's first supertanker. By shipping oil from Saudi Arabia to Europe and America at half the cost, he became the RICHEST man in the world.
In 1956, Malcolm MacLean invented the shipping container which revolutionized transport and world trade. The container opened the door to the huge profits of the shipping business, to the private investor.

Shipping Container Home Coming to Redondo Beach
Here in Los Angeles housing is expensive but there's an alternative which could save about thirty percent on construction cost shipping container homes CBS News Tuesday market shows us more as the cost of living rises the way we live is changing people are living in modular homes prefab homes and even shipping container homes. containers get all the headlines countless shipping containers come into the ports of LA and Long Beach and many of them stay but some are being repurposed into everything from retail spaces to homes when Paula approached me about a shipping container home I thought this is insane.
And then I met Peter and I still thought it was insane. Matt and Paula dowd are using shipping containers to build two shipping container homes in Redondo Beach one for them and one for Grandma. I can age in place and my grandchildren will grow up here and I'll be with my daughter and my son inlaw. they're building with architect Peter DeMaria but it's an idea that still stirs controversy. In this area you mostly find Mediterranean or craftsman style homes and you bring something like this to the city and.
They're like, yeah I don't know it took several trips to the City Council to get their property approved with multiple modifications to the design and Matt had the same concerns as the city. my opinion was oh my gosh it's going to be boxy and corrugated but many homes built from shipping containers look like this and this all of these homes were designed by the architect very few people be able to tell wow that's a shipping container home. containers are the thing that really breaks down the door and people say.
Maybe I can do the little bit differently and I'm not going to sacrifice quality and I'm not going to sacrifice on the size of the house and all of it translates into doing it less expensively. most containers can be covered with any surface like wood stucco or vinyl siding and it's affordable while maintaining quality in general they're around 30 percent less than traditional construction a great value but the quality of construction is a heavy gauge steel that that blows away wood frame house a comforting thought in quakeprone.
Southern California and by upcycling metal containers it's one of the greenest options available so the containers become a means to an end we're changing the way we think about building and we're saving the planet. we're taking material and upcycling it as opposed to cutting down five or six acres of forest every time we put up a new wood frame house. DeMaria says there's a revolution to change how we live and the Dowd's are early adopters and I think this is how a great progress is made really this.
