On every arrival at port, vessels are boarded by so many people - custom officials, insectors, ship agents, shore crew members and other visitors, They are all to use the gangway, or accommodation letter as the normal means of access - the condition of the gangway often gives people the very first impression of how the vessel is managed. Since the pilots often have to embark/disembark the ship in hazardous conditions, it is essential that the pilot ladder of the ship complies with the highest standards and is properly maintained. In addition to that, it is very important that the crew members are fully aware of the procedures and are able to follow them in the correct manner. The present video film supplements this training booklet.
