Description: The second edition of Guidance to Masters was written in an attempt to
provide guidance and support to the Master and the officers, but not to interfere
in any way with directives or instructions of the Company or any legislative
requirements. It may be considered as a pragmatic description and illustration of
complicated laws and circulars issued by the various safety agencies.
Part 1 describes the purpose and structure of this Guidance to Masters.
In addition, the various loss prevention activities of Gard are also explained. In
an attempt to shed some light on the complex distinctions between P&I and Hull
and Machinery, a brief explanation is provided. For further details, please refer
to the more voluminous Gard Handbook on P&I Insurance.
Part 2 constitutes the heart of this Guidance to Masters and focuses on loss
prevention in the widest possible sense, taking into account the experience and
expertise, not only of the entire editorial committee, but that of all of Gard
and the writer’s own experience. The sections were arranged in the sequence
of the workflow: from taking over command or commencing service; care
for proper crewing; providing a safe and secure environment; maintaining a
technically fit vessel, including cargo holds and gear; describing the properties
of selected cargoes; preparing for the voyage, including voyage management and
watchkeeping, until something occurs which may affect the performance of the
voyage – the latter of which will hopefully never happen.
And finally, Part 3 provides general as well as specific incident response
advice, in alphabetical order, in respect of different scenarios. Again, Part 3 of
the Gard Guidance to Masters is not intended to interfere with any Emergency
Contingency Plan as provided by the Company or specific response plan as
required by national or international authorities.
