This Standard may call for the use of processes, substances and/or procedures that are injurious
to health if adequate precautions are not taken. It refers only to technical suitability and in no way
absolves either the supplier or the user from statutory obligations relating to health and safety at
any stage of manufacture or use. Where attention is drawn to hazards, those quoted may not
necessarily be exhaustive.

21.

This Standard has been written, and shall be used, taking into account the policy stipulated in

CORPORATE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE

5.1

Water Supplies
a.

Water consumption should be kept to a minimum whilst at sea as water supplies are
at a premium. This is particulary important where for operational reasons
onboard water production is reduced e.g. noise reduction.

b.

Reduction of water usage, by whatever means possible has the added benefit of
reducing the overall environmental impact.
