Effective Mooring, 4th edition 2019


Mooring is one of the most complex and dangerous operations for ship and terminal crew. If something goes wrong, the consequences can be severe.

Effective Mooring gives crew a general introduction to mooring and guidance on how to stay safe during mooring operations. It is written in an easy-to-understand style for seafarers worldwide and can be used as a training guide for both new and experienced crew. Produced by the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF), the book is written for crew on board oil tankers, barges and terminals, but the principles can be applied to any vessel.

This fourth edition of Effective Mooring is aligned with the guidance in OCIMF's Mooring Equipment Guidelines, Fourth Edition (MEG4), which contains more detailed technical information on the design and maintenance of mooring systems.

New in Effective Mooring, Fourth Edition:

Emphasis on the whole mooring crew being responsible for safety.

Removed guidance on marking snap-back zones: the whole mooring deck is a danger zone.

More guidance on barges.

Simplified language and more cartoons, to make it easier to read.

Addresses human factors, e.g. communication, fatigue, situational awareness, etc.
