The Standard Club issued an alert focusing on the USCG that reconsidered its interpretation of ‘next scheduled drydocking’ with regard to extensions given under its ballast water management requirements in 33 CFR 151 Subparts C and D and is providing additional guidance on what constitutes entry into drydock and the end of an extension period.
USCG reminded owners and operators of towing vessels to ensure that 25% of their fleet has received a Certificate of Inspection before 22 July 2019, under Subchapter M. They must also schedule a vessel’s inspection before 22 April 2019 if the COI is expected to be received in the first year.
The USCG has issued a Safety Alert on the dangers of confined space entry , in light of a recent casualty where three people were asphyxiated on a drilling rig (MODU). The Coast Guard says that Studies have shown that people often miss the obvious cues of a situation while under stress and because their focus is upon another effort or action that needs to be accomplished.
