Here is the final one of the series of the competence-related standards developed and published by the DNV GL classification society and this document is dedicated to the shipboard cargo operators working on the tankers transporting the crude oil. Such cargo operators shall be able to prepare the tanker for loading and discharge of the cargo, safely load the crude oil into the suitable tanks, ensure that the cargo intended for transportation is duly treated in the course of the transit, properly analyze the associated risks and determine the requirements for segregation, log all required data, discharge slops and vapours in the safe and environment-friendly way, efficiently strip and discharge the cargo etc. The arrangement of the standard is absolutely similar to the one of the any other personnel competence-related standard released by this classification society. Each of the competence requirements would derive from a task to be performed by the operator. The document contains literally all information for the assessment of the cargo operators and will be very useful for the personnel willing to improve their skills associated with what is considered the scope of the standard.
