What is Ship Shore Safety checklist for bulk carrier or dry cargo ships ?

 SHIP/SHORE SAFETY CHECKLIST

For Loading or Unloading Dry Bulk Cargo Carriers
Date……………………………………………Ships Name: .……………………………….
Port………………………………………….Terminal/Quay. …………………………..
Available depth of water in berth………………………..Minimum air draught*…………………………………………
Arrival draught (read/calculated)………………………Air draught. ……………………………………………………….
Calculated departure draught………………………………Air draught. ……………………………………………………….

The Master and terminal manager, or their representatives, should complete the checklist jointly. Advice on points to be considered is given in the accompanying guidelines. The safety of operations requires that all questions should be answered affirmatively and the boxes ticked. If this is not possible, the reason should be given, and agreement reached upon precautions to be taken between ship and terminal. If a question is considered to be not applicable write “N/A”, explaining why if appropriate.

1.Is the depth of water at the berth, and the air draught, adequate for the cargo operation?
2.Are mooring arrangements adequate for all local effects of tide, current, weather, traffic and craft alongside?
3. In emergency, is the ship able to leave the berth at any time?
4.Is there safe access between the ship and the wharf?
 Tended by Ship/Terminal (cross out as appropriate)

*      The term air draught should be construed carefully: if the ship is in a river or an estuary, it usually refers to maximum mast height for passing under bridges, while on the berth it usually refers to the height available or required under the loader or unloader.
     

 

15. Has a cargo loading or unloading plan been calculated for all stages of loading/deballasting or unloading/ballasting?

Copy lodged with…………………………………….

16.Have the holds to be worked been clearly identified in the loading or unloading plan, showing the sequence of work, and the grade and tonnage of cargo to be transferred each time the hold is worked?
17.Has the need for trimming of cargo in the holds been discussed, and the method and extent been agreed?
18.  Do both ship and terminal understand and accept that if the ballast programme becomes out of step with the cargo operation, it will be necessary to suspend cargo operation until the ballast operation has caught up?
19.Have the intended procedures for removing cargo residues lodged in the holds while unloading, been explained to the ship and accepted?
20Have the procedures to adjust the final trim of the loading ship been decided and agreed?

Tonnage held by the terminal conveyor system……………….
