Description: The purpose of this guide is to explain the key issues of hatch cover security and to steer mariners towards active
maintenance. Ensuring hatch covers are well maintained reduces the number and cost of cargo wet damage claims.
As part of the Loss Prevention department’s continuing commitment to safety at sea, a number of ‘Master’s Guides’ have been
produced. They focus on delivering best practice advice on key areas of vessel operations to avert avoidable claims and prevent
accidents, casualties and incidents at sea. These guides were created by harnessing the professional knowledge of members in
the Loss Prevention team who have served at sea.
A Master’s Guide to Hatch cover maintenance is an original Standard Club document, first produced in 2002.
This revised version provides further information about the type of hatch covers commonly used on merchant vessels,
emphasizes the importance of vessel’s cargoworthiness and shares loss prevention advice on preventing cargo damage
resulting from hatch cover defects. Appendices are included which provide checklists for routine operation, inspections,
repair and maintenance.
This guide sets out to promote industry best practice and was written in collaboration with Lloyd’s Register, one of the world’s
leading providers of professional services for engineering and technology.
