A master's guide to Fire Safety on Ferries - PDF Version
How to use this Guide A Master’s Guide to Fire Safety on Ferries sets out to promote best practice in fire safety, to raise awareness of fire risks in general and fire risk on ferries in particular. The guide is written for mariners, although surveyors, safety professionals and anyone with an interest in marine safety will find it of use. We have assumed mariners have completed basic firefighting training and so have not attempted to teach this or write a firefighting manual. We have also assumed mariners have experience of the fire prevention, detection and extinguishing systems on ferries, and therefore have not delved too deeply into design but have attempted to explain the basics, their strengths and weaknesses, what can go wrong and what mariners can do to improve fire safety. The guide largely excludes fire safety in machinery spaces, this being the subject of a separate publication.
