UKクラブ：貨物の取扱いに関する書籍「Carefully to Carry」を出版
要旨： 安全は第一の目的であり、ロス・プリベンションは海運業界における永遠の課題です。本出版物は、船舶や貨物、ますます複雑化する法規制などについて様々な問題を取り上げています。この度、UKP&Iクラブは最近の業界の動向に焦点をあて、刊行物「Carefully to Carry」を更新し、出版しました。メンバーの皆様には一部配布される予定です。
While safety is the primary objective and loss prevention continues to be an ongoing concern for shipping, this book also touches upon a variety of issues, as vessels, cargoes and regulations become increasingly complex. In this context, the UK P&I Club has updated its Carefully to Carry publication to highlight the most current thinking in the industry.
Best practices, checklists, key points and considerations, and clear messages supported by photos and illustrations are some of the features of this manual that not only educate but also enhance the reader's existing knowledge. For example, it supplements insightfully the IMSBC Code, the IGC Code and the BLU Code, among others.
Carefully to Carry is of course not limited to dry bulk cargoes, but also covers liquid bulk cargoes, gases, packaged cargoes and a long list of other cargoes. It encapsulates the full range of potential issues around transporting bulk cargoes, from the characteristics and risks inherent in specific goods, hold preparation and hatch covers, to best practice when loading and unloading and the regulations that shippers must abide by.
By encouraging best practice around the handling and storage of potentially dangerous cargo, this book will hopefully assist in reducing the number of tragic injuries and incidents that unfortunately continue to occur. Crew members who familiarise themselves with this guide and its recommendations can significantly reduce the possibility of cargo incurring any damage, with all the resulting costs that this can bring.
All Members will be receiving a copy of the book, but if additional copies are required they can be ordered from Witherbys here.
