Effective management of Health, Safety and Environmental protection is critical to the tanker industry and The International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals (ISGOTT) has become the standard reference on the safe operation of oil tankers and the terminals they serve.
This Sixth Edition encompasses the latest thinking on a range of topical issues including gas detection, the toxicity and the 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.
The authors believe that ISGOTT Sixth Edition continues to provide the best technical guidance on oil 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 through their safety management systems and procedures.
