APPROPRIATE TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR ENGINE ROOM                                               PERSONNEL FOR SUCCESFULLY ENCOUNTERING MACHINERY RELATED EMERGENCY SITUATIONS


                                          MAIN ENGINE


1.  WHERE NECESSARY SUITABLE STAGING, ADEQUATELY SECURED, SHOULD BE USED TO PROVIDE A WORKING PLATFORM.

2.  BEFORE ANYONE IS ALLOWED TO ENTER OR WORK IN THE MAIN ENGINE CRANKCASE OR GEAR CASE, THE TURNING GEAR SHOULD BE ENGAGED AND A WARNING NOTICE POSTED AT THE START POSITION. THE SPACE SHOULD BE WELL VENTILATED AND THE ATMOSPHERE TESTED.

3.  BEFORE THE TURNING GEAR IS USED, A CHECK SHOULD BE MADE TO ENSURE THAT ALL PERSONNEL ARE CLEAR OF THE CRANKCASE AND ANY MOVING PART OF THE MAIN ENGINE AND THAT THE DUTY DECK OFFICER HAS CONFIRMED THAT THE PROPELLER IS CLEAR.

4.  IF A HOT BEARING HAS BEEN DETECTED IN A CLOSED CRANKCASE, THE CRANKCASE SHOULD NOT BE OPENED UNTIL SUFFICIENT TIME HAS BEEN ALLOWED FOR THE BEARING TO COOL DOWN, OTHERWISE THE ENTRY OF AIR COULD CREATE AN EXPLOSIVE AIR/OIL VAPOUR MIXTURE.

5.  THE OPENED CRANKCASE OR GEAR CASE SHOULD BE WELL VENTILATED TO EXPEL ALL FLAMMABLE GASES BEFORE ANY SOURCE OF IGNITION, SUCH AS A PORTABLE LAMP (UNLESS OF AN APPROVED SAFETY TYPE ) IS BROUGHT NEAR TO IT.

6.  BEFORE THE MAIN ENGINE IS RESTARTED, A RESPONSIBLE ENGINEER OFFICER SHOULD CHECK THAT THE SHAFT IS CLEAR AND INFORM THE DUTY DECK OFFICER WHO SHOULD CONFIRM THAT THE PROPELLER IS CLEAR.
