This publication sets out the basic skills and knowledge requirements for safe operation of F(P)SO installations and the training and assessment of F(P)SO personnel to meet them. It has been produced by OCIMF in cooperation with the Marine Safety Sub-Committee of The International Association of Oil and Gas Procedures (OGP) and with OGP’s endorsement.
Effective management of Health, Safety and Environmental protection is critical to the tanker industry and The International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) has become the standard reference on the safe operation of oil tankers and the terminals they serve.
This OCIMF publication contains recommendations to support a marine facility’s competence development programmes for Mooring Masters. There is no established requirement for this group of maritime professionals and the objective of these Guidelines is to provide a competence baseline that can be applied internationally.
OCIMF’s guide, 3rd edition (2017) is an essential tool for tanker vessel operators in achieving high standards of ship management and safety. A useful complement to IMO Conventions and Codes, this third edition has been updated to reflect current legislation and emerging issues, and incorporates feedback from companies and users of previous editions of TMSA, as well as providing guidance on OCIMF’s view of industry best practice.
