This book will provide a good introduction to safe tanker practice, terminology and standards. It is not a detailed opertational guide, but it is aimed at personnel with little or no experience.

 

The International Safety Management (ISM) Code dets standards for your company's safety management system (SMS) and operating manuals. When you are aboard a tanker you must follow these standards carefully. This book is very much an addition to the standards and not an alternative to them.

 

The owner, operator, Master, senior officers and everybody on board your ship have a duty to comply with good and proper tanker practice.

 

As a crew member on a tanker, you are encouraged to seek more information and detail on the contents of this book. In particular, you should look at the publication ISGOTT: the 'International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals' (ISGOTT).

 

When reading this book you may find terms that are new to you. A glossary of technical terms is provided and you should refer to this if you are uncertain about meanings. If you are still unsure, ask an officer or other member of the ship's crew.

 

This book only looks at practices on ships carrying crude oil and petroleum products.
