LEVEL OF FIRE SAFETY ABOARD A SHIP UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Shipbuilding involves the use of great quantities of combustible substances and materials, of types of equipment that are potential sources of ignition, and of welding and gas-cutting processes. The authors hold that the majority of fires that occur during ship construction are attributable to inadequate or improper preventive work associated with evaluating the risk of fire and taking the steps necessary to prevent the occurence of situations posing the danger of fire. A very detailed system is presented for quantitatively evaluating the level of fire safety for ships under construction--a system that the authors believe can significantly improve the organization of efforts to prevent fires and assure fire safety.
