LIFEBOAT SAFETY — MANAGING THE RISKS
|D O W N L O A D|
Regretfully, it is still a fact that so many people working at sea have been, and, what is the most frightening, continue to be either killed or very seriously injured in the accidents where the various failures of the lifeboat on-load release mechanisms are involved.
The main objective of the present briefing booklet is to give the responsible officers a proper outline of the whole content of each of the four sections in the DVD (it's content is also included in the pack) so that the officers can get a clear idea of the key safety messages and can think about how to conduct the pre-lifeboat drill briefing.
The responsible officers should confirm the correct understanding of the crew by discussion of the safety messages. The main declared purpose of this DVD was to highlight the growing body of support for FPD, standing for the fall preventer devices as well as a potential hazard of not being able to release the painter.
Some of the relatively simple control measures have also been suggested to supplement the basic requirements outlined in SOLAS - that will hopefully reduce lifeboat accidents that keep killing or seriously injuring seafarers. Note that this DVD can actually be restarted at any desired time for discussion.
