New pocket guide for bulk safety

The UK P&I Club, Lloyd’s Register and Intercargo have produced a pocket guide and checklist for ships’officers and agents who arrange cargoes for loading. Carrying solid bulk cargoes safely: Guidance for crews on the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes Code outlines the precautions to be taken before accepting solid bulk cargoes for shipment; sets out procedures for safe loading and carriage; and details the primary hazards associated with different types of cargoes. A quick reference checklist and flowchart summarise the steps to be followed.

The guide is designed to prevent the devastating consequenses of bulk cargoes shifting, liquefying, catching fire or exploding as a result of poor loading procedures. Ships may capsize, lose stability or sustain severe structural damage. Such happenings enhance the risks – and the occurrence – of death, injury, insurance claims, operational delay and considerable expense.
