The Primary function of the Tankerman is to prepare the barges that are assigned to their boat for safe and complete loading and discharging of oil, refined and petrochemical cargoes.
Tankermen normally work a 12-hour day schedule (some watch-standing may be required), are occasionally required to work additional hours, but not to exceed 16 consecutive hours without rest. The schedule is equal time; 14 days on, 14 days off.
Tankermen must be able to wear a negative or positive pressure respirator, PVC foul weather gear, rubber gloves and boots to protect them from harmful cargo contact. During the course of normal operations, Tankermen may have to wear a 5-minute escape pack, a negative pressure respirator, or a positive respirator.
