4. Shipboard Procedures

To reduce one of the greatest threats from an uncontrolled environment – when a pilot is aboard a foreign ship – the Associated Branch Pilots developed a list of cleaning and personnel requirements for each piloted ship to follow. The United States Coast Guard then adopted these requirements and published them as a Marine Safety Information Bulletin (MSIB) that must be followed by all ships and crews. A copy of this MSIB is attached as Exhibit A. Now, there is greater confidence that consistent, standardized cleaning and sanitizing procedures are being followed by ship crews along with other safety measures, such as a limitation on who can be on the bridge of ship at the same time as a pilot.

 

Additionally, the Associated Branch Pilots are in communication with ships prior to a pilot boarding to confirm that no one aboard the ship exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19. For inbound ships, dispatchers will hail the ship on VHF channel 9 one hour prior to the pilot boarding. The dispatcher will ask a series of questions of ship personnel, including the following:

 

1.      Does any crew member have symptoms of COVID-19, including, but not limited to, a fever of 100.4 degrees or greater, cough, trouble breathing or any body aches.

2.      Additionally, has your vessel fully complied with Captain of The Port, New Orleans, MSIB Volume XX issue:035, COVID-19 Vessel Precautions, Dated March 17, 2020?

 

If the answer to question #1 is not a definitive “no,” and the answer to question #2 not a definitive “yes,” then the ship shall be instructed by the pilot to go to anchor, and the agent will be contacted to resolve the matter with appropriate officials, including the CDC and/or USCG.

A pilot will not board the ship until the matter is resolved.

 

Similarly, on outbound vessels, shipping agents have been asked to send an email to our dispatchers prior to a vessel sailing to confirm that all crew members are healthy and that the

vessel is in compliance with the MSIB.
