Otherwise it is not particularly important. 4. How can machinery risk factors which contribute to the vessel risk profile as defined in this module be limited or eliminated?

Where is information regarding vessel structural standards likely to be fond? Select all of the correct options. - Classification Society rules - SOLAS - Marpol 73/78 - ISM Manual 6. Select the correct statement: High specific gravity cargo piling up on the tank top may affect the structure of - The double bottom and the side shell - The double bottom only - The double bottom, the side shell and the transverse bulkheads - The side shell only

7. How has the incidence of collision and grounding in congested waterways been significantly reduced? - Introduction of double hull vessel - Introduction of traffic separation schemes - Introduction of special areas in Marpol regulations - Introduction of marine fuel sulphur limits 8. Which vessel types are subject to enhanced survey requirements as part of an Enhanced Survey Programme? - Only offshore support vessel - Only bulk carriers - Bulk Carriers and oil tankers - Only oil tankers 9. The vessel structure is subject to stresses due to various internal and external forces acting upon it. Select, from the options given, the conditions which wil result in additional stress due to external forces. - Stowed cargo - Operation of ships machinery - Action of rough seas - Vessel movement in a seaway 10. Which factors should be considered when putting together a vessel risk profile as described in this module? - All factors that give a risk of machinery failure - All factors that give a risk of the cargo being damaged - All factors which may result in an increased of corrosion - All factors which put the vessels general safety at risk 11. An experienced officer is signing on a new vessel. Immediately upon arrival, he is ordered to take the watch on the bridge without completing a familiarisation programme. Should this be considered acceptable? - Yes. He has experience on a bridge and so doesnt need to do familiarization for every ship. - Yes, if the Officer of the Watch is certified by the Classification Society, he doesnt need a familiarisation programme. - Yes, if the Officer of the Watch is certified by the Flag State authority, he doesnt need a familiarisation programme. - No, an officer should always go through an appropriate familiarisation programme before he takes over as the Officer of the Watch. 12. What would be the result of loading a vessel without a properly formulated loading plan, particularly at a high loading rate terminal? Select all of the correct options. - It may result in excessive local stresses due to uneven distribution of cargo - It may create stress raisers

- Excessive stresses may result due to unusual and unacceptable still water bending - It may accelerate corrosion of the hull structure 13. Why is there a greater risk of serious fire hazard in the engine room than anywhere else on the ship? Select all correct options. - Fuel and other combustible material generally present - Multiple potential heat and ignition sources - Smoking is generally permitted in the engine room - Engine rooms are always dirty and oily 14. Which design feature of modern tankers and bulk carriers has resulted in reduced vessel risk factors as well as improved environmental protection? - Bulbous bows - All aft accommodation - Double hull construction - All aft machinery spaces 15. The GMDSS equipment is considered essential to the ships general safety. Which of the given options either individually or in combination, is considered an acceptable arrangement under Solas requirements for maintenance of the equipment? Select all of the correct options. - There must be duplication of the equipment necessary for emergency and distress signals. - There must be a trained maintainer on board - The maintenance can be carried out by any of the ships engineers - The ship must have a shore based maintenance contract 16. Which personnel should be familiar with the emergency electrical power supply arrangements and change over procedures? - Only the ships Electrical Officers - Only the Chief Engineer - Only the watch keeping engineers - All engine room personnel 17. How do structural corrosion and structural damage affect the risk to the general safety of a vessel? Select all of correct options - Increases the risk since the defects may act as stress raisers - Increase the risk since still water bending may occur - They have no affect on the level of risk - Increases the risk because the structure is weakened 18. When considering machinery risk factor, in the context of the vessel risk profile as defined in the module, which machinery or systems may be considered to be the most critical? - Only the steering gear and electric power plant

- Any piece of machinery or system which would result in loss of control of the vessel in the event of it failing - The failure of any piece of machinery or system which would result in the vessel - Only the main propulsion system 19. Which of the following should be included in a voyage plan? Select all the correct options - Any course alteration points - Indication of safe speed and any speed changes that may be necessary - Up to date charts showing intended track and any areas of danger or any hazard - The methods to be used for position fixing 20. What information should be contained in the Vessel Enhanced Syrvey File? Select all correct options - A record of the weather conditions affecting the deck area and superstructures - A complete record of the condition of the hull and fittings including details of any previous repairs - The survey programme of the critical areas of the hull structure, access possibilities and minimum thickness records - The status of the hull structure based on previous records of surveys and reports TEST 2 1. Check the boxes on the factors that can be categorized as human errors - t wont happen to me attitude - Carelessness - Ignorance to the hazards of a job - Task vs. safety focus - Recklessness - Weather conditions - Lack of understanding or skill in how to work safety around hazards - Faulty equipment 2. Check which of the following actions that can be used to reduce the risk in a job - Wear personal protective equipment - Let someone else do the job - Change the physical conditions - Identify better tools to do the job - Change the frequency of performing the job - Modify the job procedure - Figure out a different way to do the job 3. What do you with a Risk Profile Matrix - Reduce the risks of an accident - Check how many times you can do a dangerous job without accidents - Check if a risk is acceptable

- Reduce the consequences of an accident 4. If a risk is not acceptable you can - Leave the job to someone else - Reduce the likelihood and/or consequence - Continue with your work but be very careful - Get more people to help with the job 5. What should you do before performing any job onboard - You do not have to follow procedures if you done a thorough risk analysis - Follow procedures and apply informal risk management - Ask your superior - Check how many persons you can get to help you 6.
