Training seafarers on handling cargo safely has great impact on achieving safety commitments, but there are a lot of difficulties and obstacles which prevent securing the excellence, such as handing over the MSDS in short period before starting loading, and the English language issue with non-British crew..
We highly recommend shipowners to have copy of IMSBC (International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargo Code) and IMDGC (International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code) in all spoken languages onboard in addition to request from the shippers the same for the specific MSDS.

A safety meeting and hazards analysis (participated by stevedores and relevant personnel) shall be the first step of any loading plan.


Register of Lifting Appliances and Items of Loose Gear

We have noticed a lot of shipowners consider lifting appliances as Unnecessary deal relying on the class technical file which shows nothing regarding lifting appliances…
Register of Lifting Appliances and Items of Loose Gear
And in many cases there is no instructions manual and no load specification card..
Looking forward more safety, shipowners and classification societies shall pay more attention for ILO Convention No. 152, 1979
Especially in offshore industry where we can see onboard all masters are doing proper risk assessment and clear rigging plan before any lifting operation.

Attention: The Decision Maker Of Any Active Company/Organization

You might read these facts on

The production and use of paper has a number of adverse effects on the environment.

Worldwide consumption of paper has risen by 400% in the past 40 years leading to increase in deforestation, with 35% of harvested trees being used for paper manufacture. Logging of old growth forests accounts for less than 10% of wood pulp,[21] but is one of the most controversial issues.

Paper waste accounts for up to 40% of total waste produced in the United States each year, which adds up to 71.6 million tons of paper waste per year in the United States alone.[22]

Conventional bleaching of wood pulp using elemental chlorine produces and releases into the environment large amounts of chlorinated organic compounds, including chlorinated dioxins.[23]Dioxins are recognized as a persistent environmental pollutant, regulated internationally by the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants. Dioxins are highly toxic, and health effects on humans include reproductive, developmental, immune and hormonal problems. They are known to be carcinogenic. Over 90% of human exposure is through food, primarily meat, dairy, fish and shellfish, as dioxins accumulate in the food chain in the fatty tissue of animals.[24]
