We are all aware of the fact that mooring is deservedly considered one of the most difficult and hazardous activities for both ship crew members engaged in the subject operation and the port workers. Should something go not as planned, this can eventually result in disastrous consequences.

The present publication was compiled by the professionals of the world respected OCIMF entity with the intention to provide industry with the general and concise introduction to the mooring operation, and also to give necessary guidance on provision of safety.

The style of the text is very easy to follow so the publication can be used for the training of the seafarers at all levels, starting with the very beginners. Note that this fourth release of the title is aligned with the Mooring Equipment Guidelines and you are encouraged to use both volumes, since the latter will provide even more detailed overview of the design of the shipboard mooring systems and their proper technical maintenance.

The main emphasis has been made by the authors on the crew activities and due attention has been paid to the human factor, considering the huge number of cases where this factor played the key role – note that most of them could actually have been prevented.
