Description: In addition to the financial and insurance claims, there are other potentially more serious
consequences that need to be considered:
• Fire – is the cargo being carried likely to self heat or combust when wet?
• Accelerated corrosion – is the cargo being carried reactive to moisture (e.g. sulphur)?
• Loss of stability – is the cargo being carried prone to liquefaction when wet?
Any one of the above could potentially lead to the loss of the vessel and possible loss of life.
The aim of this guidance is to highlight the most common defects and to emphasise the importance
of proper maintenance routines. In addition, it will discuss the safety considerations to be taken into
account when working on or operating ships hatch covers.
