Description: The possible hazards that are associated with transportation of the bulk cargoes by sea are not usually restricted just to handling them correctly during the loading and discharge. Such cargo itself can present very serious risk, especially if the cargo is undergoing some changes in the make-up during the hold on passage - because it gets too hot, or too wet, or not ventilated enough. The consequence of such changes may be a loss of the vessel, or of lives of people on board. The present guide is intended to serve as a textbook and reference source covering the basic principles governing the carriage and handling of the bulk cargoes of all types. Unfortunately, there are too many examples showing us that the bulk cargoes must be treated with the critical respect. The risks are real and you will find some of the examples in this guide. You will find the recommended practices and useful instructions in this training booklet. Significant part of the book is dedicated to the IMSBC Code released by IMO to codify the best bulk cargo transportation practice, and its requirements. This publication is to be present on board every bulk carrier and the requirement contained in the Code are to be followed as necessary.
