WAC 296-56-60017

Line handling.

(1) You must not stow cargo or material or place vehicles where they obstruct the work surface, in order to provide safe access for handling lines while mooring and unmooring vessels.
(2) You must install grab lines or rails on the sides of permanent structures when stringpiece or apron width is insufficient for safe footing. ("Stringpiece" means a narrow walkway between the water edge of a berth and a shed or other structure.)
(3) You must light areas around bitts or cleats where workers perform their duties as line handlers as required by this chapter. There must be a nonslip surface around each bitt or cleat.
(4) You must ensure a six inch by six inch toeboard is installed if the handrail is omitted on the line handling side for walkways on which the mooring hawsers must be moved.
