Improved ship/shore safety checklists, to help ship and terminal crew complete important safety checks efficiently, have also been added to the system.
“We are committed to helping chemical tankers, terminal operators, and anyone involved in the carriage of chemicals on ships, in their efforts to streamline operations while following all safety guidelines,” said Hans Bobeldijk, CEO of UAB-Online.
This new additions to the platform aim to improve overall compliance by enabling digital working processes, for the agent, ship, and shore side, and offer chemical facilities support in remaining compliant with the new safety guidelines and with ISGOTT6 (International Safety Guide for Oil Tankers and Terminals, Sixth Edition).
