This is a practical guide for Masters and officers to help establish a routine of order and responsibility for the main onboard management systems, including safety, communications, discipline and navigation.

These checklists outline basic procedures for all ranks to ensure that critical checks and procedures are addressed and are not overlooked as new procedures are added or as crews change over. The checklists are designed to foster good communication between members of the crew and will aid the Master in delegating tasks to individuals.

The checklists can be adapted to suit whatever circumstances and personnel exist on board, ensuring maximum efficiency, safety and a continuation of command during handover. They cover topics such as:

  • Safety
  • pollution prevention
  • ballast water management
  • preparation for port arrival
  • emergencies on board.
