The Social concern of the Safety has been reached a zenith these days of Korea through the past few decades.
After Korean Independence, Development is more important and efficient than safety in Korean peninsula because of nothing to take place to eat for living. As a result of ignored safety, Industry is always chased more efficient than safety.
Recently, Hot issued safety accidents in our society are as follows
Firstly, the Lunar New Year morning in 2014 a Singapore-registered Oil Tanker WUISAN, VLCC(Very Large Crude Oil Carrier), collided with GS-Caltex Crude Oil Dolphin and pipelines caused spillage at a quay off Yusu, happened almost 20 years after some 5,000 tons of oil washed onto the same coast in 1995.
Secondly, domestic passager boat "Sewol", the sinking of the Sewol ferry has also brought into focus the safety problems of coastal liners.
In case of Ulsan port, a small amount of oil leaked off the coast of Ulsan from a cracked floating hose run by Korea’s major refiner, SK Energy in 2013.
In oil handling facilities, there are many potential problems such as lacking and ambiguity of safety regulations, unconcerned and ignorance of dangerous cargo handling tanker and facilities - Dolphin, SPM, Tandem mooring etc.
This Study aims for enhancing safety system on dangerous cargo handling facilities and makes a legislative Certificate System through investigation of maritime accidents on collision dangerous berths, questionnaire for workers and investigation regarding Self-Safety Management System on dangerous cargo handling and operating companys which transport dangerous cargo through tanker, the study of Safety Guidelines and Good Industry Practices for Oil Terminal in E.U, Marine Terminal Information System in OCIMF, CDI-T
Today, Self-Safety Operation Management System in company is not core value of Dangerous cargo handling berths because of Lacks of willings of owners managing it safely in Dangerous cargo operation industry, safety monitoring processing system operating by Authorities.
We need to be addressed promptly to avoid potential maritime disasters in the future through the Certificate System in Dangerous cargo handling facilities as similar with PSM(Process Safety Management) in Industry Fields and change of the Marine Safety Regulation.
Therefore, I address the Introduction of the Certificate System in dangerous cargo handling facilities to encourage the workers those who work dangerous cargo handling facilities and to keep pace with safety policy in Korea.
