More than fifty years ago, namely in 1965 the IMO, i.e. International Maritime Organization, adopted the first original version of the IMDG Code to reflect the UN recommendations on the transportation of dangerous goods to the extent they were considered applicable to shipping.

Since then, ships have carried dangerous goods safely, day after day, week after week, and those people managing that transport from manufacturer to end user have complied with the IMDG Code with safety and efficiency. Consequently, the number of emergency incidents arising from carriage of dangerous goods by sea, has greatly reduced.

The present training pack consists of two video films prepared by the world recognized Videotel specialists whose original intention was to provide the shipping industry with the information to be learned and clearly understood by all people involved in marine transportation of various dangerous goods, in fact regardless of their position on board and their involvement in the process.

The films cover literally everything the crew members and other persons engaged in transportation should be well aware of in order to provide safe and efficient transportation of the dangerous cargo. Wherever safety is involved, the maximum care shall be taken and maximum knowledge of the process shall be there...

Nearly thirty years back a Liberian chemical tanker had a massive explosion followed with the fire near the coast of Central Japan. The tanker was carrying about twenty six thousand tons of chemicals, including seven thousand tons of highly toxic acrylonitrile plus various amounts of caustic soda and methanole. Subject explosion had such a great magnitude that the ship's crew was not able to send a distress signal.

Fire and rescue teams could not board the ship due to toxic gases, fire, and series of continuing explosions. The tanker burned for about five days before sinking. Regretfully, all twenty-three crew members were killed... The safe handling of nitriles is critically important to everyone involved in nitriles operations.

The health effects that are commonly associated with the explosion of these chemicals are always very severe and possibly life threatening. However, we can eliminate or at least limit the risks if we become fully aware of the factors leading to the unsafe conditions. The information presented in this training film will be of great practical benefit to the people whose working activity is connected with the nitriles - they will get a lot of really useful information using which they will be able to arrange safe transportation of subject cargoes.
