Bridge & Deck Procedures• Precautions shall be taken to protect personnel, equipment etc. from the dust of the cargo.• During handling of the cargo, “NO SMOKING” signs shall be posted and no naked lights or other ignition sources permitted.• Suitable precautions shall be taken before entering cargo spaces, which be depleted of oxygen and/or contain a flammable atmosphere.• The ship shall be provided with a detector suitable for measuring hydrogen in an oxygen depleted atmosphere and for use in a flammable atmosphere.• Cargo temperatures and hydrogen concentrations in hold atmospheres shall be measured at regular intervals during the voyage.• If the hydrogen concentration exceeds 1 per cent or the cargo temperature exceeds 65oC, appropriate safety precautions shall be taken. If in doubt, expert advice shall be sought.• Bilge wells shall be checked regularly for the presence of water.• The hydrogen concentration shall be measured in the holds prior to opening the hatch covers. 14.4.4 Liquefaction of Iron ore fines and nickel ore Cargoes that are at risk of liquefaction are those containing at least some fine particles and some moisture, although they need not be visibly wet in appearance. The most widely known cargoes with this hazard are mineral concentrates, although many other cargoes can also liquefy, such as fluorspar, certain grades of coal, pyrites, millscale, sinter/pellet feed, etc. The lowest moisture content at which liquefaction can occur is called the Flow Moisture Point (commonly abbreviated FMP). Its numerical value can vary widely even for cargoes with the same description. It is not possible to predict the FMP of a given cargo from its description, particle size distribution or chemical composition and the FMPControlled Revision: 01 Jun 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 014DRY CARGO OPERATIONS Approval: WBF Page: 16 of 17

Bridge & Deck Procedures therefore needs to be determined by laboratory testing separately for each cargo provided by each shipper.• Both SOLAS and the IMSBC Code incorporate provisions intended to ensure that only cargoes with sufficiently low inherent moisture content to avoid liquefaction are loaded.• Strict adherence to these provisions is the only safe way of carrying these types of cargoes. Documentation and Filing o Deck Log Book Distribution o Onboard References o IMSBC Code o Insurance Section o P&I Club List of Correspondents o JSA Builder Risk Assessment ToolControlled Revision: 01 Jun 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 014DRY CARGO OPERATIONS Approval: WBF Page: 17 of 17

Bridge & Deck Procedures15.0 Statutory Certificates and Records  Purpose o To specify guidelines on the maintenance and upkeep of statutory certificates and records  Application o All Ships  Responsibility o Shipboard Management Team o Technical Superintendent 15.1 Certificates Renewal The Master is to ensure that the vessel has all the necessary certificates for the intended trading pattern and that they are valid. Before a certificate expires, renewal must be applied for in ample time. The Master shall keep a separate file for the vessel's \"Trading Certificates\" with a list of the contents showing issuing date and validity (File Index 4.1). Any recommendations or conditions of class issued in connection with renewal, annual or intermediate surveys are to be complied with, immediately, and SeaTeam is to be advised of their imposition and correction. • Every COC is to be entered in the ShipNet Database as a Non- Conformity with alert & closure dates set to activating in advance expiry of the COC Class and Statutory Surveys Separate files shall be maintained for class quarterly and annual status reports, surveys reports and correspondence with the Flag State. See File No 4.2 5.1 and 5.2. Specific attention is drawn to the Liberian FlagControlled Revision: 01 Sep 2015BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 015STATUTORY CERTIFICATES & RECORDS Approval: WBF Page: 1 of 3

Bridge & Deck ProceduresState Annual Safety Inspection. On Liberian Flagged vessels, theMaster must ensure that the annual safety inspection is carried out asper Liberian Maritime Regulation 7.191 (ref.: RLM-300). The Master isto ensure that class and statutory surveys are carried out within thedue dates. The Master is to coordinate this with the superintendentand Fleet Group Manager. The Fleet Group Manager and superintendentare to be advised immediately of any defects, deficiencies and damagesaffecting class or a certificate.Notification of Expiry DatesOn the date which a class certificate expires, (windows taken intoconsideration) classification of the ship and all other class certificateswill be suspended automatically. The result of this is that the ship'sinsurance cover will become invalid. Therefore, the Master is toregularly review the certificate situation with the Chief Engineer andwithin the Sunday message advise of any certificate which are due toexpire within the next four (4) weeks.15.2 Multiple Load Line CertificatesFor any change of freeboard: • Only one set of marks shall be visible on the ships side and the associated load line certificate shall be displayed at all times • The remaining load line marks shall be properly obliterated with paint and the remaining load line certificate (s) not being used, shall be kept away from the one in use; and • An official entry shall be made in the official log book every time the load line mark has been changed • Other statutory certificates with indication of deadweight not corresponding to the international load line certificate in use, shall also be kept away from the one in use. • If not required to be recognized by a RO (Class), as is the case for Honk Kong Flag, vessels, Masters are to refer to and maintain copy of the flag circular on Multiple Load linesControlled Revision: 01 Sep 2015BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 015STATUTORY CERTIFICATES & RECORDS Approval: WBF Page: 2 of 3

Bridge & Deck Procedures16.0 Deck & Cargo Gear Maintenance  Purpose o To specify requirements for Cargo Gear Register  Application o All Vessels  Responsibility o Master o Chief Engineer o Chief Mate16.1 General Deck MaintenanceGeneral deck maintenance is the responsibility of the Chief Mate & thedeck officers & senior ratings (Bosun & pump man) are to coordinatemaintenance under his direction.Maintenance includes: • Load line, pollution control & safety equipment & fittings. • Safe access ways, ladders, passages, etc. • Cargo handling & preparation equipment. • Corrosion protection & cosmetic housekeeping (painting & greasing). • Tanks, void spaces, cargo & ballast spaces. • Vents, openings & hatches. • Mooring, anchoring, lifting equipment.Controlled Revision: 01 Jan 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 016DECK & CARGO GEAR MAINTENANCE Approval: WBF Page: 1 of 6

Bridge & Deck ProceduresRepair of reported defects. All cargo gear must be entered in the cargogear register. This includes al loose gear such as hooks, blocks, chainsetc.16.2 Cargo Gear Register • The cargo gear register must contain a “rigging plan” that lists where all lose gear is being used, i.e. which blocks, hooks, swivels etc. are being used with which crane etc. • All lifting gear must be certified and the certificate must be on file, ready for inspection when required. The certificate lists the identification mark on each item of gear. • Annual examinations must be done at least every 12 months. A competent person such as Master, Chief Engineer or Chief Mate can do this provided the certificate of class does not have notation referring to the cranes. It is recommended that this be done at the time of annual surveys where the attending surveyor should be asked to stamp the cargo register. • Every 5 years the cargo gear must be load tested and this must be recorded in the cargo gear register. This can only be done by Class surveyor. Some confusion occurs at this point as the proof loads required for loose gear is greater than that of the crane. However, if the block, hook etc is permanently attached to the crane, it is not considered as loose gear. • Every 5 years, all loose gear must be tested and thoroughly examined by Class. According to Class, thorough examination may be sufficient and testing is at the attending surveyor’s discretion. Hence, it is possible that after thorough examination, he will not require further testing, or testing of one set of gear or testing of all loose gear. However, this is not acceptable under Australian Marine orders. Therefore, during docking the master and superintendent should take the opportunity to test all loose gear to avoid the possibility of future problems that could prove costly. • Ships staff, prior to arrival at any port where ships cargo gear will be used should use Checklists and SeaTeam Form 033.Controlled Revision: 01 Jan 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 016DECK & CARGO GEAR MAINTENANCE Approval: WBF Page: 2 of 6

Bridge & Deck Procedures16.3 Tank InspectionsForm Tech 041 is standardized form that allows development of tankspecific inspection records • Ballast tanks and voids completed on a 12 month interval.The Chief Officer is responsible to maintain tank specific records inaccordance with the established schedule16.4 Mooring EquipmentMooring equipment maintenance and upkeep is the responsibility of theChief Officer. The ShipNet Planned Maintenance System should be theprimary tool utilized to monitor and record completion of works requiredalthough certain forms will be needed and should be attached andimported in the system when used as records.16.4.1 Mooring Winch Brake TestsBrake Holding Capacity (BHC) tests are required to be carried outannually at rendering power in accordance OCIMF Mooring EquipmentGuidelines by using the following procedure: • After rigging the BHC test equipment, the brakes on the drums of the winch should be tightened as much as possible. • The hydraulic jack should then be pumped up to a power equal to 60% of the MBL of the mooring ropes • The brake should then be released slowly till it starts to slip. • A breakable plastic cable tie should then be fastened around the threads of the spindle of the braking device to mark the correct torque setting, so that the brakes can be tightened to this reference mark (to ensure that brakes slip at 60% of the MBL)Controlled Revision: 01 Jan 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 016DECK & CARGO GEAR MAINTENANCE Approval: WBF Page: 3 of 6

Bridge & Deck Procedures16.5 Gas Detection InstrumentsGas detection instruments require special attention as the equipment isoften scrutinized by Port State and Vetting Inspectors. It is extremelyimportant that deck officers know and can basic procedures for onboardcalibration. Should there be any doubt function or procedure; theinstrument should not be used until guidance is obtained from the HSQEDepartment: • All portable gas monitoring equipment is to be serviced and calibrated annually by an authorized manufacturer’s agent • Only half the inventory of portable gas detection instruments should be landed for shore calibration at any one time, in order to ensure at least one set of each type instrument is retained onboard for crew use • Always refer to the manufacturers instruction manuals when preparing to calibrate a specific instrument • Each vessel must have a full set of English language instruction manuals for each type of Gas Detection Instrument carried • All vessels must maintain an inventory of Gas Detection Instruments and accessories for the vessel type as specified on Master-List 014 - Minimum Inventory of Gas Detection Instruments • Instrument calibration should be checked by the user prior to use or otherwise as recommended by the manufacturer • Only accessories and equipment of same maker may be used for instrument calibrationCalibration ProcedureGenerally, to calibrate a Gas Instrument: • Inflate a test bag (a balloon like device with a hose and hose crimping clamp) or use a manufacturer provided regulator and hose to connect span gas to inlet side of the instrument via suction hoseControlled Revision: 01 Jan 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 016DECK & CARGO GEAR MAINTENANCE Approval: WBF Page: 4 of 6

Bridge & Deck Procedures • Release the clamp or open the regulator and induce the fuel/air concentration of span gas (as listed on the can), and verify the instrument reads the same concentration as the gas induced when reading the appropriate scale • If the same reading is achieved, the meter is in calibration • If not, the span adjustment screw must be rotated until the meter reads the same concentration as the span gas is induced to achieve calibrationOxygen MetersOxygen meters are instruments that detect the percentage oxygen in theatmosphere. Because Oxygen is present in air, oxygen meters may becalibrated in ambient air as follows: • Turn the unit power on, allow to warm-up, and a reading of 21% should be obtained in normal outside air • If the meter reads 21% in normal air, the meter is in calibration • If not, the span adjustment screw must be rotated until the meter reads 21% while in normal air • It should be noted that Oxygen meters used to check oxygen levels in an inert atmosphere (such as a cargo tank) should be zeroed with 99.9% Nitrogen in order to confirm calibration and the validity of the sensorMulti-Gas Detector Tubes and PumpsMulti-gas tube type detectors are used to measure specific quantities ofknown airborne toxins. The Drager bellows pump and detector tubes arethe company standard. To Calibrate a Drager type instrument: • Perform a leak test of the bellows by squeezing the bellows fully closed and inserting an un-opened tube • If the instrument does not expand within the time specified in the user’s manual, the instrument the pump is in calibrationControlled Revision: 01 Jan 2013BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 016DECK & CARGO GEAR MAINTENANCE Approval: WBF Page: 5 of 6

Bridge & Deck Procedures17.0 Stevedore Damage  Purpose o To specify requirements for monitoring damage to the vessel by shippers, receivers or stevedores  Application o Bulk Carriers o Container Ships o General Cargo Vessels  Responsibility o Master 17.1 Stevedore Damages to Vessel The Stevedore Damage clause(s) of the Charter Party may vary from one Charter party to another; however, it is a standard requirement in all clauses that a written notice of the damage be issued immediately any damage by Stevedores comes to your attention. This stevedore damage report should include the following: • Port and date of the occurrence • Time of the occurrence • Where the damage occurred noting the affected part of the vessel • Details of the damage (extent of damage) • Cause of damage, reasons for damage • Who did the damage (name of Stevedore, winch or crane operator etc.) • Witnesses at the time (Chief Mate, 2nd Mate, Supercargo, stevedore’s foreman etc.) • To whom was the damage reported at the time • Signature of Stevedores' foreman or other responsible person • Any other necessary remarks • Photographs, if any taken, of parts involved.Controlled Revision: 01 Sep 2010BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 017STEVEDORE DAMAGE Approval: WBF Page: 1 of 3

Bridge & Deck ProceduresMany times the stevedores who are responsible for the damages refuseto sign the Stevedore Damage Report accepting liability and in suchcases, you should make every effort to obtain their signature with theremarks \"acknowledge receipt only\" or \"for receipt only\". If, however,it is impossible to obtain any signatures from the stevedores concerned,you should state underneath \"Stevedores refused to sign\", and youshould make every effort to place them on notice by telex or registeredletter.The Stevedore Damage Report should be addressed to the Stevedoreswho caused the damage and copies should be sent to the following:• Time Charterers / Voyage Charterers / Shippers / Receivers / Stevedores• Agents at the port where damage occurred and local P & I Representatives.• SeaTeam office• Supercargo on board (if any)• A copy must be retained on board in the relevant voyage file.It is always advisable and preferable for all such damages to berepaired on the spot by the Stevedores concerned. Time and facilitiesavailable should be taken into consideration. However, irrespective ofwhether the Stevedores promise to repair the damages aftercompletion of loading or discharging or during discharging, you MUSTALWAYS, issue the written Stevedore Damage Report immediatelywhen the damage occurs.In some cases, Stevedore damages are not immediately detectedbecause the Stevedores have covered the damage with cargo. In suchcases, especially when loading heavy cargoes such as steel products,machinery etc., a letter should be given to the Stevedores with copiesto all parties concerned, holding them responsible for any hiddendamages which may have occurred during loading, but which may onlybecome apparent during discharging.Officers should be well briefed on this matter and they should be alertand observant in order to detect any damages when and where theyoccur. Damage should be reported as soon as possible.Sometimes the Stevedores may choose to repair the reported damageson completion of discharging, in which case you must ask them to giveyou the estimated time for such repairs and contact your TimeControlled Revision: 01 Sep 2010BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 017STEVEDORE DAMAGE Approval: WBF Page: 2 of 3

Bridge & Deck ProceduresCharterers by phone or telex, to obtain their agreement to the delay.They may wish to carry out the repairs themselves later, or reimburseyour Owners with the costs involved.Should the Time Charterers instruct you to sail without having anyrepairs done, you should ask them to confirm this by telex/cable toyou. They would have to accept responsibility for these damages.• Any repairs may only be deferred, provided they do not affect your vessel's sea worthiness or cargo handling efficiency.• In every case, when you are in doubt, contact SeaTeam by telephone, telex or cable for necessary instructions also contact your local P & I representative for his advice. Documentation and Filing o Distribution o Full Management Vessels - File copy o Singapore Office - Original References o P & I Club InstructionsControlled Revision: 01 Sep 2010BOM Part A – BDP Doc No. 017STEVEDORE DAMAGE Approval: WBF Page: 3 of 3
