MOORING — DO IT SAFELY
|D O W N L O A D|
This practical publication was prepared and subsequently released by DSA, standing for the Danish Shipowners' Association, in close co-operation with together with DMA, i.e. Danish Maritime Authority. The content of the document opens with the introductory chapter providing basic general information on the mooring process itself.
The main portion of the booklet is arranged in three parts. The first part is devoted to the safe mooring practices and covers preparation for the mooring, running out the mooring lines, hauling them in, using capstans and drums, snap-back zones, and spooling. The second part addresses the prevention of the accidents, including risk assessment, review of the near misses, maintenance and repair, instructions, safety culture of the crew members and their behavior during the mooring activities.
The last part of the volume deals with the improvement of the safety culture and tools commonly used for that, including checklist, instruction and safety culture sessions and other important matters. There is some additional information in the appendices. A very useful and practical document to be referred to by the people engaged in mooring operations.
