On every single arrival at any port, vessels are boarded by many people - custom officials, inspectors, ship agents, marine surveyors, shore crew members, suppliers and other visitors, and all of them shall use the gangway, or accommodation letter as the normal means of access - the condition of the gangway often gives the ship's visitors the very first impression of how the vessel is managed.

Since the pilots often have to embark/disembark the ship in quite hazardous conditions, it is considered 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 all crew members are fully aware of the procedures and follow them in the prescribed correct manner.

The present video film supplements this nice training booklet and has same structure. It should be recommended to all crew members and particularly to those of them normally engaged in subject operations. The video will also be good when used for general familiarization purposes and may therefore be aimed to the general audience, i.e. not only people making the ladder arrangements but also people using the gangways and ladders - it makes sense to have a clear idea of what you are stepping on...

The on-board watertight doors are commonly designed and installed to prevent the water ingress from one water-tight compartment to others when there is flooding or any other accident accidents. These doors are normally used onboard vessels and other marine structures in areas with relatively high probability of flooding are high - these would include engine room compartments, shaft tunnels and some other.

This short video will give trainees some more information on the watertight doors. Note that we have another book covering the construction and use of the watertight doors and an excellent supplementary video film. However, you shall always remember that while the doors are important for the safety of the people, they can be dangerous - they can harm and even kill someone - if you do not strictly follow the correct procedure for their use or do not pay enough attention.

Noting the critical importance of the watertight doors for the integrity of the ship's hull and, consequently, for the safety and health of the people on board and protection of the environment, we highly recommend to go through all available training tools and get as much understanding of this item as possible.

It sounds quite reasonable that being thoroughly familiar with the surroundings in a vital part of providing the workplace safety. Throughout their marine careers, people may have to go onboard a wide variety of different vessels. That is the reason why it is critically important that they are fully aware of the correct actions to be undertaken in case of an emergency before assuming a shipboard duty.

This is now a mandatory requirement applicable regardless whether you are crew member or not, i.e. you must know your ship and be duly familiar with shipboard safety, emergency and safety routes and important signs and symbols. The present video training video film forms one of the parts of the official Videotel course covering all important aspects of the shipboard work and operating of the vessel, with the particular attention being paid to the safety of the people working at sea.
