  4. Familiarizations Objectives • To give to all Onshore & Offshore staff a knowledge about what the ISM Code is and its function. • To describe the ISM Code structure • To present the compliance planning to comply with ISM Code.

  5. History of the ISM Code 1980’s - There was mounting concern about the poor management standards in shipping. Investigations into accidents revealed major errors on the part of the management. 1987 - the Maritime Safety Committee was called to develop guidelines concerning shipboard and shore-based management to ensure the safe operation of ships. 1993 - The ISM Code for the Safe Operation of Ships and for Pollution Prevention was adopted by the IMO as Resolution A.741(18). 1994 - Amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) 1974, the International Safety Management Code (ISM Code) became mandatory.

  6. What is the ISM Code? The ISM Code is an international standard for the safe management and operation of ships and for pollution prevention. The Code requires each owning or managing company to establish a Safety Management System (SMS) to ensure the safe operation of the ships under their management. It came into force on 1 July 1998 as SOLAS Chapter IX, ‘‘Management for the Safe Operation of Ships’’.

  7. Why is there a ISM Code? It is estimated that a high proportion of maritime accidents (80%–90%) are attributed to human error. Investigations into accidents highlighted shortcomings on the part of ship management both at sea and ashore.

  8. One of the Reasons for ISM • The tragic loss of the Herald of Free Enterprise in 1987 was a catalyst in this process. 193 Persons died

  9. The Objectives of the ISM Code ISM Code aims to ensure Safety at sea, Prevention of human injury or loss of life, and avoidance of damage to the environment, particularly the marine environment, and to the property.

  10. Who does it concern? It applies to ALL Passenger ships, Oil & Chemical tankers, Bulk carriers, Gas carriers. Other cargo ships above 500 gross tonnage and Self Propelled MODU were required to comply no later than 1 July 2002. It does not apply to vessels below 500 gross tonnage or Military vessels. Companies can also voluntarily undertake ISM compliance if their vessels do not meet compulsory criteria. Songa Offshore has undertaken voluntary ISM compliance for all fleet vessels.

  11. How is the ISM Code Achieved? To achieve the aims of ISM Code, each company should: Establish a Safety and Environmental Protection policy which is implemented and maintained by all staff both Onshore & Offshore.

  12.
