How would you determine restriction areas and working zones in a RoRo/Passenger vessel in a chemical incident as follows:

  • Ship: RoRo/Pax, living quarters in front
  • Length: 250 m
  • Breadth: 30 m
  • Chemical in question: UN 2218 Acrylic Acid, stabilized
  • Amount: 30 ton (container)
  • Location on the ship: Weather Deck, port side, 25 meters from living quarters
  • Leakage: Big Leak, not under control
  • Other environmental factors: Wind South-West 5 m/s, small waves
  • Air: +25°C

What kind of restriction areas and working zones would you define?
