LIFEBOAT ON—LOAD RELEASE MECHANISMS
|D O W N L O A D|
An excellent training video prepared by the experts of one of the world leading training providers. The content of the video film addresses the on-load release mechanisms used on the lifeboats. Subject devices were first introduced some forty years ago and become mandatory through SOLAS. They are used to provide safe release of the lifeboat hooks once the latter is on the water.
Normally, the lifeboats are not expected to return back to the vessel during the abandon operations. However, the shipboard drills carried out on a regular basis, imply the recovery of the lifeboats from the water and their return to the designated lifeboat davits. Note that this is a stage of the whole lifeboat drill considered the most risky and dangerous. The present video will demonstrate the correct sequence of the operations. It shows every single component of the lifeboat release gear.
The operation mode of each component is illustrated. The video also explains all relevant safety procedures and checks together with the correct maintenance procedures. Taking into account the critical importance of the equipment in question, the video is highly recommended to every person on board and it will be also great when used as a supplementary training tool during any courses.
