ISGOTT International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals

PublisherICS & OCIMF

Effective management of health, safety and environmental protection is critical to the tanker industry. This sixth edition of ISGOTT has been revised and updated by industry experts to provide essential guidance on current technology, best practice and legislation. It remains the definitive reference document for the safe operation of oil tankers and the marine terminals they visit.

This sixth edition has been updated by OCIMF and ICS together with the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH). Support has also been provided by other industry associations including INTERTANKO, the Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) and the Society for Gas as a Marine Fuel (SGMF).

The book covers a range of topical issues including gas detection, the toxicity and toxic effects of petroleum products (including benzene and hydrogen sulphide), the generation of static electricity and stray currents, fire protection and the growing use of mobile electronic technology. Many areas of the book have been reappraised and new topics, such as cyber security, have been added.

The Ship/Shore Safety and Bunkering Operations Checklists have also been revised to reflect changes in the understanding of the impact of human factors on their effective use. The layout of the book has been significantly improved to make it easier to navigate, with the addition of coloured sections and tabs. The text is supported throughout with new and updated illustrations.
