International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT)

Item Number: 122389 Author: IAPH/ICS/OCIMF Binding: Hard Cover                    

Long awaited new edition of this standard work now totally revised and updated. In this text, the Fifth Edition, account has been taken of latest thinking on a number of issues including the generation of static electricity and stray currents; the use of mobile telephones and pagers, which are now ever present; the use of new materials for mooring lines and emergency towing-off pennants; the toxicity and the toxic effects of benzene and hydrogen sulphide; and, importantly, the introduction of the principles underlying the International Safety Management (ISM) Code and the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code. The Ship/Shore Safety Check-List has been completely revised to better reflect the individual and joint responsibilities of the tanker and the terminal. The Guide is now divided into four sections: “General Information”; “Tanker Information”; “Terminal Information” and the “Management of the Tanker and Terminal Interface”. Care has been taken to ensure that, where the guidance given in previous editions was still relevant and accurate, it has not been changed or deleted in moving to the new format. ISGOTT continues to provide the best technical guidance on tanker and terminal operations. All operators are urged to ensure that the recommendations in this Guide are not only read and fully understood, but also followed.
