This publication uses a risk assessment method to offer context and define some example emergency scenarios and response strategies.
All of the responses are based on the following order of priority: protection of life, the environment and property. Protection of life has been considered not only in the context of the ship and terminal staff involved in a cargo operation, but also of the emergency responders and the general public in the vicinity.
SIGTTO has ensured this publication explains the basis of design of facilities and gas carriers, including the purpose and limitation of equipment used. This should assist in the improvement of existing practice.
