Abstract

This paper reports a study of an environmental and occupational risk assessment of two processes, regarding the transfer/discharge of hazardous ship waste (sludge and oily waters). Following the methodology suggested by the Spanish Standard UNE 150008:2008, a number of accident scenarios (n = 7) were created and their respective risks evaluated, focusing on environmental matters. The results pinpointed several aspects needing priority attention, mostly within procedures and equipment. To improve the safety of those processes, the authors proposed a number of recommendations.
