Oil Tankers ? A Pocket Safety Guide - 2018 Edition
This pocket-sized book has been significantly updated for 2018. It covers ship safety, and outlines industry best practice for all crew members working on oil tankers.
It incorporates recent safety developments, including updates to safety management practices, safe mooring operations, the procedure for entry into confined spaces and atmosphere testing. The book reviews a variety of common hazards on oil tankers, for example carrying out safe cargo and lifting operations, the correct use of PPE and safe access/movement around the ship.
It is an essential ‘back to basics’ safety guide for seafarers of all ranks and positions.
This book explores practices on ships carrying crude oil and petroleum products and provides a good introduction to safe tanker practice, terminology and standards. It is not a detailed operational guide, but is aimed as a ‘back-to-basics’ safety guide for seafarers of all ranks and positions. It is suitable for seafarers who may be rejoining a tanker after leave for example, or for a person with little or no experience on tankers. Ideally, it should be read to aid the familiarisation process whenever you join a tanker.
The International Safety Management (ISM) Code sets standards for your company’s safety management system (SMS) and operating manuals. These will provide the details and procedures to allow you to work safely at sea, so you must follow them carefully. This book is an addition to the standards and not an alternative to them.
As a crew member on a tanker, you are encouraged to seek further information and detail on the contents of this book. In particular, you should read the publication?‘ISGOTT: the International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals’.
When reading this book, you may find terms that are new to you. A glossary of technical terms is provided at the end, and you should refer to this if you are uncertain about meanings. If you are still unsure, ask a senior officer or other responsible member of the ship’s crew.
