Forms of pollution during review marine chief engineer jobs
The Company’s Environmental Protection Policy are contained in Policy Manual and is prominently displayed onboard all Company vessels. This policy details the Company’s commitment to protecting the environment against pollution. The Company requires all personnel both ashore and afloat to familiarize themselves with this policy and participate in achieving our objectives.
Masters, Marine chief engineer jobs, Officers and Ratings are required to take all reasonable practicable steps to prevent pollution of the environment by:
* Dangerous Goods and Harmful Substances.
* Organisms in ballast Water.
* Exhaust and Cargo Vapor Emissions.
Pollution incidents similar to those described in this section must be initially reported to the Office.
In addition to reporting all pollution incidents, Masters are required to record and report all near miss occurrences that may have resulted in pollution to enable the Emergency Response Team to investigate, collate analyses and subsequently implement recommendations as necessary.
1.5.3 OIL POLLUTION
Pollution by oil from ships can broadly be divided as follows:
* Vessels at sea.
* Vessels in port.
Although the above scenarios present the same potential danger to health and the vessel’s safety with regard to a fire hazard the Master has more time and more options open to him when initiating his contingency plan when the vessel is at sea.Masters are reminded that safety of life is their first consideration and this must take first priority.
The Master’s second consideration must be the safety of his vessel and consequently it may be necessary for him to follow the contingency plans noted earlier in this manual prior to dealing with pollution aspects. The vessel’s specific plans for dealing with oil spills appear in the SOPEP Manual and in the Company’s Emergency Response Plans. Masters must use the IMO.648 (1) report format for reporting all oil spills, including incidents where pollution is possible at some time in the future.
DISCHARGE OF SEWAGE
Raw sewage must not be discharged from a holding tank unless the vessel is more than 12 miles from land and underway. The tank must be discharged gradually.
Sewage from an approved communicating and disinfecting system discharged unless the vessel is more than four miles from land.
must not be
Liquid sewage from vessels with a sewage treatment plant of approved specification can be discharged at least twelve miles from land.
Extreme care must be taken to ensure that when sewage is being discharged there is no likelihood of the effluent entering the sea water inlets for fresh water generators.
If there is any possibility of this occurring then the FW generator must be discharge of the sewage tank is in progress.
