  1. Not too sure who mentioned the Air in the rank was toxic. Man could also be safety watch topside, and welding work could be going on within, requiring ppe for safety watch.

  2. A confined space on a vessel means that there is only one way in and one way out. I’m sure that the space was “gas-freed” and has an oxygen level of at least 20%.

  3. How is he suppose to breath in toxic environment? Where is his clean oxygen supply? You post tank entry and safety first and show us a picture of a crewmember who is going to enter a tank.

  4. To be fair this has nothing to do with the actual tank entry the mate was simply about to follow the Chief Engineer into the toilet and it was curry night last night!

  5. Mind now, who said this was an oxygen deficient atmosphere? I see what looks like air lines bowsed into the hatch so it is probably maintenance work being carried out. In which case the space will have been ventilated tested and certified safe for the work being done.

  6. This is ridiculous. Litteraly everything, safety related, is missing. And, in an oxygen defficient environment, this mask will get you killed. I think it is time to practice, a lot.

  7. Only someone with a death wish enters a space that has not been “ gas freed” and certified safe.
    US Navy learned that many many years ago.

  8. Where is the safety? All I see is a rope tied to a pipe(!), a pointless mask and No safety harness or fall Block.

  9. Not an oxygen mask, no safety harness for vertical rescue purposes, no lanyard, no tripod stand, no barriers, no personal gas detector, no exhaust fan, no evidence of equipment fo rescue from CS, no stretcher at work site, .. and so on…
    Shitty job…

  10. I’m oil n gas tanker experienced until now still kicking b4 tank entry the atmosphere are check and safe.

  11. Filter masks do not work in Oxygen deficient atmosphere. Once gas monitor alarms, only EEBD will let you escape

  12. We did ‘tank diving’ in the 50s wearing just a pair of shorts and running shoes. Rewarded with a tot of rum when we came up.

  13. This type of respirators should not use onboard the tankers this is a nothing more than a dust mask. İt will not supply any oxygen
