This publication uses a risk assessment method and terminology to explain the environment and define some example scenarios and response strategies.
The information in this guide is provided primarily for organisations involved in the transportation of liquefied gas cargoes, including support craft, facilities, and ships. It may also be of assistance to regulators and government agencies.
SIGTTO is of the opinion that knowledge of the design basis for facilities and gas carriers, including typical credible (design) scenarios, may assist in the improvement of existing practice. This publication therefore sets out to increase awareness of the philosophy behind the design, including the purpose and limitation, of equipment used. Appreciation of the credible scenarios should also assist the industry in carrying out more effective drills and exercises.
Suggested competency standards have been provided at Annex D to assist with the creation of training programmes for the crew of support craft.
