13.5.8 The documents used to describe and implement the SMS may be referred to as the Safety Management Manual. Each vessel should retain on board all relevant documentation to that platform but this will depend on the size of the vessel. Where a MASS does not have the size or capacity to retain the applicable records a suitable alternative arrangement of document retention should be provided by the Operator.


13.6 General Health & Safety Protection Policy


13.6.1 One or more competent person(s) should be delegated to take responsibility for health and safety, and these personnel should be clearly identified. It is the responsibility of the Operator to ensure that the policy is complied with, and that the responsibilities are understood.


13.6.2 The Operator should develop a policy on the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse for all its staff.


13.6.3 All personnel, both ashore and afloat, have a duty to take care of themselves and other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions.


13.7 ISM Code Certification


13.7.1 The International Safety Management Code (ISM Code), under Regulation 3 and 4, has a requirement for vessels to have a level of certification for safety. These are:


n Document of Compliance; n Safety Management Certificate.


13.7.2 The provisions of this Code (Chapter 13) and the development and use of an SMS will assist the Operator in showing compliance to the ISM Code certification requirements.


13.8 Risk Assessment


13.8.1 Hazard identification and risk assessment are key tools in identifying those potential hazards that the operation and maintenance of the MASS may impart and the associated realisation of those hazards occurring.


13.8.2 Therefore, a key duty of the Operator is to develop an effective Risk Assessment system. This will, through a logical approach, systematically identify risks to personnel and the environment that the MASS could potentially influence.


13.8.3 Risk assessment system outputs will assist in the production of the MASS safe systems of work and operational procedures.


13.8.4 Any Risk Assessment system should be simple to understand and implement such that Operators can carry out effective risk assessments, taking into account any deviations from the perceived ‘normal’ operating envelope.


13.8.5 Further guidance can be sought in Chapter 1 of the Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seafarers.


13.8.6 Where a MASS uses, transfers or holds bulk quantities of substances, materials or liquids that, in the event of a spillage could constitute an environmental impact then the Operator is recommended to develop and implement a MASS Oil Pollution Emergency Plan (MASSOPEP).
