Service

Inventory of hazardous materials

Cameron Maritime Surveys & Environmental Solutions (CMS) is a multi-lingual company. The core activity is the Inventory of hazardous materials (IHM). CMS is able to provide IHM survey for part I, after the shipbuilding and during the operation, of the vessel, as well as Part II and Part III, prior to recycling. In short, CMS is able to provide all the services required, that are necessary for an International Ready for Recycling Certificate (IRRC). This IHM survey often includes the preparation, charting and sampling of hazardous materials used in different applications, and materials on board, for example: Asbestos, PCB’s, PFOS, HBCDD, TBT’s, Cadmium and Cadmium Compounds, Hexavalent Chromium Compounds, PBBs, PBDEs, Polychlorinated Napthalenes, Lead and Lead Compounds, Mercury and Mercury Compounds as well as radioactive substances. This IHM survey is a dynamic document and is continually maintained throughout the life cycle of the vessel. CMS is an approved sub-contractor for SGS. CMS uses the NautilusLog program to prepare, sample and report IHM part I, part II and part III. SGS is the world’s leading, inspection, verification, testing and certification company operating with a network of over 2,400 offices and laboratories around the world.

Asbestos management plans and asbestos awareness presentations

CMS provides onboard asbestos awareness presentations and training to vessel crews, technical and maintenance personnel and ship building yard staff. Asbestos awareness presentations and technical crew training is a vital part of of our asbestos management plan and will include the asbestos containing applications that exist on board of the vessel. This asbestos management plan is an integral part of the QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety and Environment). This guarantees a healthy working and living environment for all aboard. Included with the management plan is a 6 monthly re-inspection of all asbestos containing applications, supplemented with a presentation to all aboard and a technical demonstration to the technical crew. No project is too small.”

Asbestos management plan and project management

We conduct asbestos Solas Surveys for New build and existing vessels, after the building stage or before the start of the scheduled maintenance or refit. We determine whether asbestos is present in applications and systems. We are often able to take samples, have the analysis and report our findings immediately. Should an asbestos survey and removal be required on an existing vessel, before a scheduled maintenance or refit period, we guarantee the vessels owners and maintenance personnel there will be no delay. This avoids down time and unexpected costs.
