Here is another training video - this one is intended to supplement this training booklet on the Emergency Response on Container Ships. Although the training programme addresses specifically container ships, the main messages apply equally to emergency on any type and.or class of ships. Since container ships were introduced in 1960s, the container industry has undergone extraordinary growth. Ship size has increazed dramatically and so have the commercial demands. As a result, today's container ships are running at high level of possible risk. The most common emergencies reported on container ships are fires, which can spread to other parts of the ship, and leaks, posing safety risks to personnel from toxic atmosphere and/or pollution to the marine environment and coastal areas.
