The Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Guidelines are technical reference documents with general and industry-specific examples of Good International Industry Practice (GIIP). When one or more members of the World Bank Group are involved in a project, these EHS Guidelines are applied as required by their respective policies and standards. These industry sector EHS Guidelines are designed to be used together with the General EHS Guidelines document, which provides guidance to users on common EHS issues potentially applicable to all industry sectors.
The EHS Guidelines for Ports, Harbors, and Terminals are applicable to marine and freshwater ports, harbors, and terminals for cargo and passengers. Shipping (including repair and maintenance of ships), fuel terminals, and railways are addressed in the EHS Guidelines for Shipping; Crude Oil and Petroleum Product Terminals; and Railways, respectively. Annex A provides a summary of industry sector activities.
