Regs4ships Training and Publications Director, Captain Mick Caulkin, has recently written a handbook aimed at Designated Persons Ashore (DPAs) – which is available to buy through the publisher IHS Fairplay from 1 March 2012.
The IHS Fairplay DPA Handbook will be of great value to both experienced and newly appointed DPAs and others at management level. Topics covered include background information, safety management guidance and comprehensive coverage of many other vital subjects, such as regulations, auditing, management systems, self-protection, accident and near-miss analysis and port state control. It also includes many practical case studies and check lists.
So that this book does not date, it is presented in loose-leaf format to facilitate quarterly content updates for those wishing to receive them. An Insight section in each update will cover new law cases, accidents and matters of concern or interest.
