Ship/Shore Safety Checklist for Loading or Unloading Dry Bulk Cargo Carriers
This is an IMO approved ship/shore safety checklist for use by ship and terminal operators. It incorporates guidance on completion and includes an example loading/unloading plan.
This checklist is designed to be completed jointly by ship and terminal personnel before commencement of operations. It improves operational safety by recording how the transfer will be conducted and clarifying the responsibilities of both parties.
Completing the checklist together is intended to help ship and terminal personnel to recognise potential problems, and to be better prepared for them. The numbering of the guidelines below corresponds to the question numbers on the checklist.
