Falconers Marine Dictionary

   This is pure classics - the universal dictionary of the marine terminology which is a thorough explanation of the technical phrases and terms, usually employed in the field of construction, machinery, equipment, movements, military, and naval operations of vessels, together with such parts of navigation and astronomy science, as will be found useful to practical navigators. The subject book is illustrated with a variety of modern designs in shipping, supplemented with separate views of the sails, masts, rigging, etc. In fact, this vocabulary of french sea phrases was collected from the very best authorities, and it was originally compiled by William Falconer, author of the famous "Shipwreck", now much enlarged and modernized by William Burney.

Norie's Nautical Tables

   One hundred and eighty years ol publication involving many new editions and reprints afford ti searching test of ihe usefulness and value of any publication designed to meet the exacting requirements of navigators and Ihe shipping industry. Since J. W. Norie published ihe first edition of his Complete Set of Nautical Tables and Epitome of Practical Navigation in 1803. The tables have undergone a continuing process of change to maintain their usefulness to the modern practical navigator. During these years many changes to the tables have been necessary in both content and presentation to conform with changing techniques of navigation, but the aim of the editors has always been to have user friendly navigational tables which could be used quickly and easily under shipboard conditions. This has resulted in many changes to the tables aimed at removing much of the tedium of interpolation, so enabling the navigator to obtain the answers to navigational problems quickly with the minimum of probability of error. Certain tables and data are also included which are not readily available on board ship or are only used in the examination room, but the physical dimensions of the book impose strict limits on what can be included with the result that it is impossible to include all the tables the editor would wish. In the present edition, the Star's Total Correction Table inside the back cover, the Moon's Total Correction Table and the extended Star's Total Correction Table have been redesigned to reduce interpolation to a minimum.

Survey Guidelines for Oil Tankers in Service

   Oil tankers are attributed to the high-risk type of vessel because of the explosibility and flammability features of their cargoes. Should the oil spill occur on a tanker, the ocean circumstance will immediately encounter a serious pollution. As especially as the tankers become larger, the oil spill after their damage may lead to a greater hazard to the environment. The persent survey guidelines book incorporate the experiences of IACS and Chinese Classification Society in the field of maintenance and inspection of oil tanker equipment. These guidelines are only applicable to self-propelled classed ESP oil tankers in worldwide service, containing integrated cargo tanks. The information contained in this book was incorporated based upon all relevant IMO Conventions, IACS URs and applicable CCS Rules in force prior to the September, 2013. List of chapters as follows: Genetal, Safety of inspection and survey, Surveys and services provided by Class on oil tanker, Inspection to structures on oil tanker, Pollution prevention, Fire protection, detection and extinction, Additional requirements to oil tankers, Brief introduction to the inspections raised by oil companies.

Guidelines on Good Employment Practice

   Nowadays, the major focus in shipping is considered to be "human element" issues, such as safety management and training. Society at large demands high standards of performance from the entire transport sector, and the adoption and further implementation of good employment practice is a necessary part of meeting those demands. The performance of individual seafarers, shipping companies and the industry- as a whole is as dependent on adherence to good employment standards as it is on compliance with technical regulations. The shipping industry was amongst the first to adopt comprehensive international employment standards following the establishment of the International Labour Organization in 1919. Maritime employers, co-ordinated by 1SF, have actively participated in the development of these standards since the first ILO Conference, and continue to do so today. The great majority' of shipping companies provide terms and conditions of employment to their seafarers which match, and in most cases comfortably exceed, best practice ashore. Seafaring is a unique profession, and the industry" offers well-paid regular employment and a,n interesting and rewarding career to seafarers of all nationalities. The members of ISF intend to ensure that the industry's high standards of employment are maintained. It is with these thoughts in mind that these Guidelines on Good Employment Practice have been produced for the assistance of the shipping industry.

Working On the Car Trailer Deck

   In this document, you can see what the national maritime representatives have agreed on and what they recommend as best practice once it comes to working on the ship's trailer deck. The reason for publishing this sector specific guidance is that dangerous situations can arise when aboard a RoRo vessel. Working on the trailer deck can be especially risky because of industrial accidents and, more importantly, due to the damage to health. However, current legislation does not include any specific guidelines aimed at preventing injury while on duty on the trailer deck. This guidance focuses mainly on working on the trailer deck. It only makes passing reference to ventilation installations since these are basically described in the IMO's MSC circular 729 of 4th July 1996. This guidance was submitted to the Danish Maritime Authority and their comments have been included in the text.

BBC Guideline - Safe Solutions for Project Cargo Operations

   All instructions and provisions contained in this Guideline conform to international recommendations and regulations, in particular with the IMO Code of Safe Practice for Cargo Stowage and Securing in its 2009 edition. Units and symbols used correspond to the Systeme International d'Unites (SI-units). The BBC Guideline further complies with provisions contained in other official documents of BBC Chartering. It will, in particular, provide guidance to the interpretation of, but not override the approved Cargo Securing Manuals of specific ships. Whilst the BBC Guideline offers a safe solution for handling project cargo, in special cases there might be customer requirements that require additional lashings and a lower friction factor. If this is the case this will be specified in the planning process. 8BC will not accept under any circumstances whatsoever, any variation from the methods set in this Guideline, which would result in lower safety in regards to cargo handling and securing. Where any variation from the methods is deemed necessary, the methods in this Guideline should be viewed as minimum requirements. If required, the bedding principles outlined in the book provide a safe methodology for distributing the weight of cargo items whilst maintaining the safe structure of the vessel. During pre-planning, these principles might be overruled and bedding undertaken by another means if an in-depth calculation demonstrates that an alternative method is safe. In principle, all shipments of heavy and/or sensitive project cargo units are pre-planned by BBC Chartering. The technical shipping procedures are in some cases laid down in a "loading manual", which is provided to the master of the vessel. This does not limit in any way the responsibility of the master for the appropriate application of all relevant procedures. The master has the overriding authority to deviate from the "loading manual" if the safety situation or nature of cargo requires this. BBC Chartering should always be contacted if a change to the planned operation is required. If there is а Зrd party surveyor present and BBC is obliged by contract to seek his approval of procedures, the field staff must obtain written confirmation from the surveyor in attendance that the changes have been agreed. The principle above also applies to instructions given in this Guideline. Where no instruction, recommendation or technical rule is provided, the reader should support the master who is responsible and obligated to take deviating decisions if the safely of personnel, cargo or vessel so demands. Safety is always our highest priority. Any person using this Guideline as a reference who has any questions relating to this Guideline, or has any doubts when handling cargo for BBC, should contact the BBC Port Captain department for guidance. It is of utmost importance to have an open dialogue and find solutions.

Fast Turnaround Ships and Their Impact on Crews

   There have been scores if not hundreds of in-house commercial studies aimed al finding ways of reducing port turnaround times and it would be surprising if at this very moment of reading these words someone, somewhere, is not considering how turnaround in some port or other cannot be shaved by an hour or two. An enormous amount of logistical and technological ingenuity has been deployed by production engineers, naval architects, civil engineers and transport planners to finding ways of ensuring that ships spend the maximum possible amount of time at sea. Unfortunately, the application of all this intelligence and disciplined energy was not matched by studies of the effects of these 'efficiency gains' for the lives of seafarers. For whatever reasons, this report is the very first publicly available detailed comparative analysis of turnaround times. The report also offers some preliminary exploration of the social cost incurred by seafarers but acknowledges that the effects of social isolation produced as a consequence of fast turnarounds, is a subject needing further investigation. The data presented here compares turnaround times in two periods -1970 and 1998 - in a real port which has been given the fictitious name of Sandhaven. -1970 marks the beginning of our inquiry here because, as Alderton's study suggests, in the century prior to the 1970s turnaround times had changed very little. The substantial and across the board reductions that have occurred in the industry are relatively recent. As we shall see in some detail, in 1970 the average turnaround time in the port of Sandhaven for all ship-types was almost six days (138 hours) and even liquid bulk carriers averaged a 40-hour turnaround.

Carriage Instructions for Refrigerated Cargoes

   All seafarers know that refrigerated cargoes are invariably perishable and the safe carriage of such cargoes will depend on maintaining proper suitable conditions of storage during transportation. In fact, this statement is true for all cargoes and all modes of transport though conditions for longer journeys and more perishable commodities are more critical. This article prepared for UK P&I Club provides some general requirements and instructions for the marine transportation of refrigerated cargoes.
