Witherby: Mooring Equipment Guidelines (MEG4)
Mooring a ship to a berth is a common function for the maritime industry, however, incidents that harm ship and terminal personnel still occur. This book contains information on mooring system design and operational considerations, centring its guidance on the human factor and crew safety.
This publication establishes the recommended minimum requirements that will help ship and terminal designers, ship operators and mooring line manufacturers on safe mooring system design, with an emphasis on the safety of ship and terminal personnel.
This fourth edition has been extensively updated and addresses lessons learned from incidents such as failures of HMSF mooring lines. It also reflects industry developments – the move towards human-centred design principles and human factors in mooring operations are explored in depth. New regulations from the IMO on the safety of mooring and options of alternative mooring technologies are also outlined.
