Safety plan under way for Oban Bay

Post Thumbnail

Work is under way to make Oban Bay compliant with the Port Marine Safety Code (PMSC).

The code applies to all harbour authorities in the UK that have statutory powers and duties. It establishes a national standard for every aspect of port marine safety.

Argyll and Bute Council is working to apply the code to its seven statutory harbour authorities, Oban, Campbeltown, Dunoon, Rothesay, Craignure, Port Askaig and Carradale.

The council has appointed Marico Marine, which has highlighted the need for certain work.

A meeting of Argyll and Bute Harbour Board on Thursday at the council headquarters in Lochgilphead will hear an update on the PMSC.

The board will be informed that a formal assessment of navigation hazards has been undertaken to help develop a safety management system.

A procedure has been put in place to ensure that the transfer of gas oil across the jetty is properly administered and the vessel operator and fuel delivery driver are compliant with the prevention of oil pollution.

A safety management system for the harbour will be completed by October with policies and procedures for the safety of navigation, enforcement, accident investigation and conservancy.

By the end of this month a local harbour users group forum is to be set up with Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd, the owner of the ferry pier.
