Monthly Safety Scenario (MSS)

The Monthly Safety Scenario (MSS) is a Loss Prevention initiative to assist members in their efforts to comply with international safety regulations and to follow best practice.

The Club will publish, on a monthly basis, a new Monthly Safety Scenario (MSS) to assist owners in their efforts of complying with the above regulations. Alternative scenarios will be uploaded in SCOL. It will be easy to download the MSS and enter the written conclusions from the meeting and send feedback to the shore based organisation.

Oil pollution at pier



July 2018 - Broken valve causes pollution

Under the ISM requirement owners are obliged to carry out monthly safety meetings or safety committee meetings onboard their vessels. This obligation stems from Chapter 5 of the ISM Code: “Master’s responsibility and authority” and furthermore from “5.1.2, motivating the crew in the observation of that policy”.

The obligation can also be derived from the Code of “Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen”, where it is stated that the safety committee should meet regularly: “3.13.2, The frequency of meetings will be determined by circumstances but as a general guideline, the committee should meet about every 4-6 weeks”.
