Engine Room Procedures Guide

Seafarer in engine room of ship

This Guide provides authoritative and comprehensive guidance on engine room procedures, to ensure that engine rooms are operated and managed safely.

It sets out routine engine room procedures, includes useful checklists for the ship’s engineering team and provides clear guidance on safe and environmentally responsible engine room operations and maintenance, supporting internationally agreed standards and recommendations adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Modelled on the globally recognised ICS Bridge Procedures Guide, this publication is relevant to all merchant ships, and will be invaluable to Chief Engineers and members of the engineering team, as well as shipping companies and training institutions. It is recommended that a copy is carried on board every merchant ship.
