The best maritime and offshore library


Wherever the design of the vessel allows it, the use of the forklifts is proved to be very beneficial. They are labor-saving devices and greatly help to reduce the risk of the personnel injury when moving cargo, lashings, securing devices, machinery, ship stores, dunnage or garbage. However, when poorly maintained or incorrectly driven, forklift trucks are potentially dangerous. A lack of understanding or inadequate training increases the chances of an accident.

It is essential that everyone on board be aware of the dangers involved when forklift operations are taking place. This program, together with the accompanying workbook, will look at the most common issues arising from the safe use of the forklift trucks on board ship. Only by following the correct procedures will accident be avoided. The present video together with the booklet will be of great practical use for the people on board every ship where the forklift operations take place.

We would recommend that every single crew member involved or planned to be involved in the subject operations gets familiarized with the contents of this training program. As you can see, the forklift trucks can be of great help to the people; however, their improper use can easily let to tragic consequences.

This guide prepared and officially released by the MCA, i.e. United Kingdom Maritime and Coastguard Agency, was developed on the basis of the information obtained during the consultation with the leading and respected maritime organizations. The publication is aimed at virtually every single person involved in the maritime shipping industry.

The authors have provided good explanations of the essential matters related to the human behavior at sea, constituting the so-called “human element” widely referred to in the international commercial marine sector. Note that we even have a section here dealing with the problem of the Human Element in the industry. It is nearly obvious that the human element in the contemporary shipping industry is one of the key elements.

The authors of the present Guide made an excellent effort to demonstrate that the properly conducted management of the human element shall take place at absolutely all levels. It has also been seriously implicated by the continued shipping disasters. That is why the authors have tried to provide readers with the detailed explanations and good professional advice in order to assist them with managing the human element in the most effective, safe and profitable way.

The voyage planning process can be treated as a sort of evolution from the old-school penciling of the proposed route on a nautical chart to a really high quality and technological process including the proper risk assessment. The marine navigators of today have to filter, analyze, correctly interpret and also do good and thorough evaluation of the huge amount of data used for the ship voyage planning.

Of course, when doing so, due care shall be taken of the compliance with the applicable regulatory framework. The recent introduction of the electronic charts followed same approach, allowing the mariners to filter the nautical chart data and adapt it to such extent that would allow only the relevant information to be displayed, meaning the voyage-specific information directly relating to the particular vessel. In the meantime, proper attention shall be paid to the handing of the information.

When compared to the traditional paper nautical charts, this approach will require a fully reworked mindset forming some challenges to the navigators today. What it means is that the navigators shall be able to properly adapt the routines of the duly trained craftsmanship on the charts in order to ensure that the subject challenge is met.

This training program developed by Videotel is intended to convey the essential training messages relating to the survival at sea and is aimed at the crew members of both cargo and passenger vessels. The book is covering the whole process of abandoning the vessel, starting from the moment when the general alarm has sounded and through the whole procedure of human rescue by either rescue boat or chopper.

There are four parts in the series, addressing the mustering, shipboard liferafts and lifeboats and, finally, survival and rescue. It should be noted, however, that even though this program underlines the critical importance of good preparation and thorough familiarization with all shipboard lifesaving arrangements and established procedures, it does not cover the drills and exercises that shall be periodically conducted; nor it addresses the technical maintenance of the relevant equipment.

The main focus has been made by the authors on what exactly and how the crew members shall do in case of emergency in order to maximize their chances for survival. Make sure you use the accompanying videos for the Mustering, Liferafts, Lifeboats, and Survival & Rescue. When used altogether, the training pack will provide an excellent introduction to the survival techniques.

Forklift trucks are invaluable on board ship for moving cargo, lashings, securing devices, trestle horses, machinery, ship's stores, garbage or dunnage. But they can be dangerous - even fatal - to drivers and personnel in their vicinity, if not driven safely or maintained correctly.

They can also cause serious damage to equipment and property. The most common accidents from forklift trucks happen when the truck turns over, the driver falls from the truck, passengers fall off, a person is in the vicinity of a forklift truck and is not seen by the driver, or the driver travels too high, too fast or too light.

The accidents involving forklift trucks mainly occur because the established safe operating procedures are not adequate or not enforced properly; it may also happen that there is some complacency since the procedure is automated. In addition to that, drivers are sometimes not trained enough to operate the machine, or they may be under significant pressure.

This booklet is mainly aimed at operators of these trucks and may be used as a refresher to familiarize them with the equipment. It will also be helpful for crew members who may appear in the vicinity of the area where forklift operations take place. The booklet shall be used together with the video training lesson.

The latest edition of the major IMO convention dealing with the prevention of marine pollution concerned with the protection on the marine environment. The main technical content of the present convention has been arranged in six big Annexes. Note that the five of them, i.e. Annexes from I (oil pollution prevention) to V (garbage pollution prevention) were adopted by MARPOL 1973 as further modified by a 1978 Protocol. The last sixth Annex was adopted by a Protocol which followed in 1997 covering the air pollution prevention.

In general, all annexes together cover the prevention of pollution of marine environment by oil, by NLS, standing for the noxious liquid substances carried in bulk, by harmful substances carried in packaged form, by sewage and garbage from ships, and air pollution. Needless to say that this is one of the most important publications to be carried on board any vessel to which present convention applies.

It is a must-have document for the port state control officers and marine surveyors checking the vessel for compliance with the requirements of convention, for the crew members responsible for keeping the vessel compliance, and for the ship designers and builders who shall have clear understanding of the convention in order to design a vessel that would meet all applicable requirements.
