Bridge notification guidance at marine offshore jobs
The engineer on duty must be aware that changes in speed caused by a malfunction of the machine or loss of steering may impair the safety of the ship and life at sea. The bridge at Marine offshore jobs must be immediately notified of future actions in the engine rooms which could lead to a reduction in the speed of the vessel, an imminent failure of the steering, a stoppage of the ship’s system or any alternation in electricity generation or similar safety hazards. This notification shall, where possible, be carried out before changes are made to give the Bridge the maximum time available to take any possible action to avoid possible sea casualties.
