COST EFFECTIVE SAFETY

This presentation describes the reponse of Sun Refining and Marketing Company's Marine Operations Division to the challenge of risk management. Regardless of which specific program is being implemented, however, there are--according to the author--four generic stages through which any successful program must progress. This progression is labeled "ATACK," an ongoing program of auditing, training, awareness and common sense--each of which is explained. The "K" in the acronyn stands for "keep up with it," and indicates the importance of staying abreast of new regulations, techniques and potentials for new hazardous situations. Some examples are given of Sun's attempts to address specific safety issues aboard company vessels. They are discussed under the headings: Audits, Professional Requirements, Onboard Medical Response, Non-Medical Casualty Response, and Onboard Training by Ship's Crew.
