The impact of pollution to a shipping company can cause significant damage, both financially and morally, whether the pollution occurs in coastal or in international waters.

Environmental damage is controlled and managed by conventions and local laws, which ship operators are legally obliged to adhere to.

To help avoid any accidental pollution Fire Aid offers guidance to enable an operator to achieve compliance with the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) regulations, which are essential.

In addition to other International conventions also covered by Fire Aid’s Pollution Prevention solution, MARPOL is regarded as one of the most important international marine environmental conventions. Therefore, the shipping industry and individual ships’ personnel are expected to play an active role in reducing pollution and the proactive management of the results of pollution.

Fire Aid provides professional expertise and experienced training, to provide all relevant International Convention solutions which encompass; fuel and cargo oil pollution, combined if required with Oil Record Book keeping, the management of Noxious Liquid Substances, chemicals and liquid natural gas (LNG) and liquid petroleum gas (LGP), as well as pollution control solutions for other potentially hazardous and environmentally damaging elements, such as containers and packages, gas, garbage, air and sewage and ship recycling, together with the necessary compliance documentation.

This also overlaps with other legislation that incorporates pollution control, such as Load Line, Intervention Convention, STCW, SOLAS, Collision Regulations and ISM Code.

In addition, Fire Aid will enhance crew awareness, knowledge-building and tailor training workshops for the operation and alarm management of Oily Water Separators.

The Pollution Prevention solutions are delivered through auditing, training, supervision and simulated exercises, onboard and at global locations.

Fire Aid’s solutions ensure that shipping operators are fully prepared for a pollution-related occurrence.
