Implementing an Effective Safety Culture - Basic Advice for Shipping Companies and Seafarers

   The present small yet quite useful brochure will give its readers the required basic instructions on the proper implementation of the effective safety culture in the shipping companies, as outlined in the requirements of the IMO ISM Code. The original intention of the authors of the document was to assist the staff members of the shipping companies, including manager and actual seafarers in fulfilling the both the letter and spirit of the above stated Code. The ISM Code has become mandatory through the SOLAS. That is one of the reasons of the significant reduction in the number of marine casualties and oil spills - and the most positive factor was the reduction in the number of human lives lost at sea. However, it should be noted that the full implementation of the safety culture is still considered a serious issue that shall be addressed by the shipping companies paying additional attention to this. It would generally include the need for all people concerned to properly understand and feel how the serious marine incidents and unsafe acts are related can result in a loss of human life or serious damage to the vessel or transported cargo, as well as to the serious environmental issues. We would also like to underline the importance of changing attitude and avoidance of negative behavior as well as complacency towards the safety at sea and protection of the environment...

Coping With Stowaways

   The number of stowaways detected on board ships is increasing every year. Not only are the numbers rising, but the stowaways themselves are becoming increasingly desperate once they are caught. Organised criminal gangs are often involved, and are becoming more and more sophisticated in their methods. At the same time, port and immigration authorities are becoming far tougher, with many countries refusing to accept stowaways, even when all the arrangements for repatriation are in place, and the stowaway is co-operative. This combination of factors and trends means that finding stowaways on board your vessel will not just be inconvenient - it will be time consuming, expensive, and can also be dangerous. The best solution is always to stop stowaways getting on board: Prevention is better than cure. This training package is aimed at all officers and crew, helping to raise awareness of the growing problem of stowaways. After using the workbook and video, you will be able to understand the nature and scale of the problems that stowaways can cause for crew and owners, help devise and work through clear procedures for preventing stowaways from boarding your ship, search common hiding places using effective search strategies, manage stowaways effectively from their discovery to their disembarkation, and understand the basic legal and ethical requirements for the treatment of stowaways. This booklet is perfectly supplemented with this training video film.

Emergency Response on Container Ships

   Emergency Response on Container Ships is principally for officers and crew. Superintendents and others working ashore will also find it useful, as it sets out the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in handling an emergency on board ship, including those who work ashore. Training officers may wish to start the first session by playing the whole video to the group and then opening a general discussion. The video can then be played again section by section, and trainees asked about the main points raised in each one. This booklet contains expanded information on each topic, and at the end of each chapter there is a short assessment test that can be used to reinforce the learning points. The focus of the training should always be on how the programme content relates to emergency response procedure on board your ship, how trainees can help to reduce the impact of an emergency once it has been identified, and what improvements could be made to ensure that everyone works well together as a team. Prevention of emergencies is always better than cure, and companies have safety procedures in place to reduce the risk of something going wrong. However, the reality is that accidents will always happen, and when they do, fast and decisive action is essential. The purpose of Emergency Response on Container Ships is to minimise the impact of emergencies once they have started to develop, emphasising the importance of effective lines of communication and of drills and exercises. Better if used together with this training video film.

Maritime Security - Protection of Marinas, Ports, Small Watercraft, Yachts, and Ships

   The ultimate goal of this book prepared by Daniel J. Benny, Ph. D., is to provide readers with a good overview of the protection of the maritime community as well as of the methods to be utilized to safeguard people, marine vessels, watercrafts, marinas, and ports from numerous threats. The publication does not cover the security issues relating to the maritime supply chain. The security level varies based on ships/maritime property and threat assessments. That is the reason why so wide range of security policies and a blend of the procedures and methods of physical security are examined. The book shall not be treated as just reporesentation of facts and the reporting on the various methods of maritime community protectiom; it rather contains the professional opininons and recommendations from the author on such methods...

What A Marine Surveyor Needs To Know About Working In Enclosed Spaces

   This book has been produced by Mines Rescue Marine (MRM) at the request of the International Institute of Marine Surveying. It serves as a technical reference for Surveyor personnel involved in entering enclosed spaces on ships for inspection purposes. I am confident that it will provide invaluable help for them to fully appreciate the potential hazards that an enclosed space may contain, or that might be generated by an inadequate entry procedure. The apparently simple operation, to enter, inspect and /or undertake work in an enclosed space, requires consideration of all available information relating to the space. This might be physical parameters, or procedural in the form of ship's rules, company guidance and details of a readily available emergency response. The professional manner in which this information is assimilated and assessed by the Surveyor prior to him attempting entry will reduce considerably the risk of the unexpected and avoid catastrophe! The advice and guidance contained here is based upon the considerable experience of MRM personnel operating and training others to work in such spaces in various industries. Equipment and techniques outlined here have been well tried and tested in real applications. Fatal accidents arising from work in enclosed spaces on ships continue to occur all too frequently. Do not let this happen to yourself. If in any doubt, there are others available who can provide advice to ensure your safety...

Ships Lifeboats - Analysis of Accident Cause and Effect and Its Relationship to Seafarers Hazard Perception

   Every professional mariner will definitely agree that the sea represents an inherently hostile environment in which the human is quite ill-suited to survive. However, the history shows great strides taken by the marine technology in order to control and possibly reduce the risks. Although the World's oceans will always remain wild and very unpredictable, mariners of today are not confronted by such hazards as poor nutrition, diseases and rudimentary navigation endured by their ancestors. Nowadays, they may immediately request aid and the reasonably expect of such assistance occurring in most parts of the planet. And, in the event of the total loss of a vessel, mariners have recourse to the same piece of LSA equipment as seafarers of old - the lifeboat. In the past, the lifeboat was the ship's workhorse used for ferrying personnel and various goods - they were also used as an aid to navigation, a means of propulsion when there was no wind, a rescue boat for men over board and a means of survival when all else was lost...

The Best of Times, the Worst of Times - Maritime Security in the Asia-Pacific

   In Southeast Asia, maritime security has, over the last 20 years, taken on much greater importance, due in part to the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and its archipelagic state and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) regimes. Regional seas contain rich marine resources, major sea lines of communication (SLOCs) and a range of non-conventional threats such as piracy, illegal migration, arms smuggling and maritime terrorism. Economic development has provided the resources for maritime expansion amidst growing reliance on foreign trade and energy. There is greater dependence on long and vulnerable SLOCs in a region not without instability and the risk of conflict. Whilst military spending in Europe declined as a result of the peace dividend from the end of the Cold War, military spending has increased in the Middle East and Asia, reflecting continuing concerns over security threats. Much of this military spending has gone into improving and expanding maritime security capabilities. This emphasis on maritime security has resulted in new building programmes for the Chinese Navy, continuing investment in naval capabilities by India and recent naval expansion programmes by countries such as Taiwan, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. Competition for resources and strategic access may increase the potential for conflict in maritime zones, especially in disputed areas of maritime jurisdiction that may include SLOCs and choke points. Multilateral security cooperation is thus required to manage emerging security threats in both the traditional as well as the non-traditional domains...

Management and Engineering of Fire Safety and Loss Prevention Onshore and Offshore

   The importance of being able to model the consequences of hydrocarbon accident events offshore is discussed. Using the specific example of structural collapse caused by hydrocarbon fire, an attempt is made to estimate the magnitude of errors typically associated with risk analyses. Those areas which, on the basis of current knowledge, are likely to generate the largest errors are identified. The reduction of such errors is seen to depend on the application of expertise which spans a number of disciplines. Finally the manner in which a risk analysis should be used is discussed given the errors that will typically be present.

Maritime Security in the South China Sea

   Today, maritime security is an extremely hot issue which attracts the attention of the whole world. In the modem era, maritime security mainly concerns the safety of navigation, the cracking down on transnational crimes including maritime terrorism and sea piracy as well as prevention of conflicts. In the context of non-traditional security, issues such as SAR (search and rescue) and maritime environmental security are included. Maritime security is of very high importance to the South China Sea - it is located in Southeast Asia and serves as a critical sea route for the maritime transport of East Asian countries. While the concept of maritime security can apply to any seas around the world, the South China Sea has its own uniqueness...

Oceans of Crime - Maritime Piracy and Transnational Security in Southeast Asia and Bangladesh

   Everybody knows what a pirate is. We all have mental images of bearded men with earrings, a peg leg, an eyepatch, and a parrot on the shoulder as epitomized by Robert Louis Stevenson's Long John Silver. The activities of pirates also do not seem very mysterious: they attack vessels and steal whatever they can lay their hands on. However this popular, Western literary-historical notion of a pirate is far too simplistic. Indeed, "piracy" has been associated with a variety of economic and political activities and has carried different connotations over space and time. Hence, definitions of piracy have varied historically and culturally and are highly contested by individuals, groups, and nations. The label "pirate" is inevitably emotive, and linked to particular cultural-historical contexts and moments in global-regional time, especially in Southeast Asia, where the scourge of piracy and its eradication featured largely in the annals of colonial mercantile history. In the past, the categorization of individuals or ethnic groups as "pirates" was ascribed to local "marauders" by colonial powers, signifying a powerful value judgement which was invariably connected to political and territorial ambitions, world commerce, and economic growth. Given the long history of piracy in Southeast Asia, it is necessary to discuss briefly the historical background of sea robbery in the region before shifting the focus to contemporary piracy.

Port Security Management

   Seaports are a critical component of the global transportation infrastructure, but historically they have not been subject to comprehensive governmental regulation and security oversight. The 2001 terrorist attacks on America were a paradigm-shifting event for transportation systems security in general. For the maritime sector particularly, that event prompted dramatic shifts in the focused perspectives on security now required by anyone even remotely affiliated with the management of security of ports, as well as the vessels, conveyances, and people transiting them. Here, a containership is seen departing a port for its next destination; a common occurrence, yet one that illustrates the crucial dependence much of the world places on the ability to move commodities securely using many nations' ports and waterways. Before the specter of global terrorism grew in the world's consciousness in the late twentieth century, the notion that this fairly routine activity might be vulnerable to significant harm was mainly a concern that occupied the minds of security and law enforcement professionals. What scrutiny has been given to this vessel, its crew, and its cargo as it moves around the world from port to port? What is really inside those metal boxes that move from warehouse to truck to train to ship to port? How closely have the activities of the men and women who transferred the containers onto this vessel been monitored? Questions like these must be posed by those managing the security of the world's transportation systems and infrastructure as they confront new, significant, and viable threats. While these managers have always had the responsibility to ensure the safety and security of the passengers, crew, and goods being moved, world events in the last 15-20 years now make us critically examine how well the security of our maritime and port infrastructure is being managed. Within this context, this book's intention is to provide a basic introduction and user's support guide to managing security at a port facility. Given the complexities of continuously evolving homeland security strategies, this book is written for those professionals, educators, and students who have responsibilities or interests in securing transportation infrastructure associated with the maritime sector in general, and port facilities in particular...

Australian National Search and Rescue Manual

   The ICAO and the IMO coordinate, on a global basis, member States' efforts to provide search and rescue services. The goal of these two international organizations is to provide an effective worldwide system, so that wherever people may be in danger, in the air or at sea, SAR services, will be available in case of necessity. Search and Rscue services are usually defined as the performance of distress monitoring, coordination, communication, and SAR functions, including provision of medical advice, assistance, or evacuation, through the use of both private and public, including cooperating ships, aircrafts, or any other inslattations and crafts. In providing assistance to persons in distress and to survivors of SAR incidents, member States shall do so regardless of the nationality or status of such a person or the circumstances in which that person is found. Under this global approach, Australia has taken responsibility for the coordination of SAR in the Australian Search and Rescue Region. JRCC Australia in Canberra is the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre responsible for the SRR. There are no designated rescue sub-centres (RSC) within the Australian SRR...

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.
