This is a practical guide to the role and responsibilities of the Designated Person Ashore (DPA), under the ISM Code, whose influence should significantly affect the development and implementation of a safety culture within a Company.
This book contains safety management guidance and comprehensive coverage of many vital topics such as regulations, auditing, management systems, self-protection, accident and Near-Miss analysis and Port State Control. It includes many practical case studies and check lists.
The author (Mick Caulkin) and his colleagues at Regs4ships are experienced Merchant Navy officers, Port State Control Inspectors, flag State surveyors and auditors. The author was also a founding member of the Enforcement Unit in the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency and has seen at first hand the value of a Safety Management System that protects individuals and Companies; and how the lack of a system makes their defence to allegations of breaking the law very difficult.
So that this book does not date, it is presented in loose-leaf format to facilitate quarterly updates for those wishing to receive them. An Insight section in each update will cover new law cases, accidents and matters of concern or interest.
This comprehensive manual is an ideal tool from which to prepare for a ship’s docking and to monitor the performance of the work.
• New and improved checklists
• Extensive details of repairs carried out in China (steel, delays, workforce, time, contract and payment)
• Advice on how to avoid unnecessary expense
• Up-to-date database of repairers and marine equipment suppliers
With over 470 pages of standard forms and checklists, the handbook provides all of the documentation needed for planning, pre-arrival, during and after docking to improve efficiency and control. All the documents and checklists contained within the publication can be downloaded from the CD-ROM onto your PC, enabling you to complete and send them electronically and archive them for future reference.
The CD-ROM also contains a fully searchable database of ship repairers and marine equipment companies worldwide, simplifying the task of finding suitable suppliers.

Pollution Prevention Handbook
The purpose of this handbook is to provide vessel operators and ship crew with operational guidelines for pollution prevention.
Studies sponsored by the Department of Transport some years ago identified that only 40% of the oily water separators installed on ships worked within the limits set out by the marine pollution convention.
This handbook provides a framework for reasonable solutions, covering systems, procedures and regulations, and describes the fundamentals of pollution prevention measures in simple language and with many practical checklists.
Technical departments will be able to use the handbook to highlight deficiencies where improvements can be made, and to ensure that they comply with MARPOL regulations and avoid costly fines and ship detentions.
All of the documents and checklists contained within the book can be downloaded from the accompanying CD-ROM.

Ship Repair and Maintenance Handbook
Shipboard maintenance is still an area of weakness for many companies, with repair costs featuring heavily on budgets. There is no point in creating an expensive, computer-based maintenance system if onboard equipment/machinery is poorly maintained. Ships’ staff must always observe manufacturers’ instructions for maintenance.
The Ship Repair and Maintenance Handbook aims to assist technical and safety staff by providing practical advice about onboard maintenance, enabling them to interpret any changes in equipment performance and avoid expensive breakdowns or marine casualties.
This handbook looks at the practical side of repair and maintenance, rather than reliance on computer-based instruction, to assist onboard and shore-based personnel in minimising problems and expensive repairs. It also emphasises the importance of investment in education, spare parts and regular inspection by superintendents.
All forms and checklists contained within the printed manual are downloadable from the guide's accompanying CD-ROM.

Safety and Environmental Handbook
The introduction of the ISM code highlighted the need to improve awareness and understanding of safety and environmental issues. Due to reduced manning levels, standards of training and communication problems between crew members from various countries, onboard safety is generally an area where improvements can be made.
The Safety and Environmental Handbook will help officers and crew to quickly increase their knowledge of systems, procedures and regulations relating to safety and environmental issues. The handbook describes the fundamentals of basic safety requirements and environmental subjects in simple language and includes many practical checklists.
One of the sections includes the development and conception of a ship-specific ISPS manual, including a working example. Security officers will be able to refer to the handbook for help when drawing up their own manual, as required by the ISPS Code.
The subscription includes a CD-ROM with numerous downloadable forms and checklists.
