    Published: July 2018

    This publication describes risk assessment and hazard identification techniques that can be applied by LPG/chemical gas shipping staff and terminal operators. It identifies the principal risks at the ship/shore interface, including vessel arrival and departure, loading and discharge operations, gas detection and exposure to hazardous products. Diagrams support the text and effectively illustrate how to mitigate ‘top event’ hazards to cargo containment.
