Maritime Security Handbook: Stowaways by Sea, 1st Edition 2014
Improvements in security have not reduced the number of stowaways or the number of incidents and it is seafarers who have to cope with the extra work, delay, uncertainty and possible violence.
This handbook complements the author’s books, Maritime Security: a practical guide, and the first handbook in The Nautical Institute’s maritime security suite, Coping with piracy. It takes the same practical approach to making a vessel secure against stowaways, managing any that have succeeded in getting onboard, collecting the necessary evidence and organising the repatriation process. The focus of the handbook is the people who have to deal with stowaways and the preparation and training that is needed both onboard and ashore. This includes an explanation of who stows away and why, how trading patterns affect risk, the responsibilities of all parties involved in a stowaway incident and the importance of reporting.
Maritime Security: A Practical Guide
Masters, company and ship security officers have a pivotal role in making vessels secure. Maritime Security is aimed at those responsible for the welfare of vessel crews, cargoes and the ships themselves. It will help in the development of the ship security plan and explain how to make a vessel truly secure.
Ships’ Masters and crews have to balance the difficult and complex demands made by other people, ships, ports and cargoes. Explanation is given of the principles underpinning maritime security and guidance on putting those principles into practice, including the ISPS Code, advising on management systems that will ensure compliance with legislation. It is a practical guide – examining the ways to ensure there is no complacency in the execution of security plans, the use of armed guards and other issues of interest to all those involved in keeping ships safe from pirates, terrorists and other criminals.
