To all people working on board sea-going vessel, including passengers, the approach of their vessel to a shore and arrival of the vessel at the pilot boarding point of the destination port is an important occasion - when you see a pilot boat and pilot himself climbing on board it surely means that your long trip is coming to an end. However, for the pilot reaching the vessel can be quite challenging task.
The present publication was released by The Nautical institute with the ultimate intention of the author to provide readers, including crew members, with all necessary information about the relevant safety aspects. Starting with a brief introduction, the content of the guide moves to protective clothing and established safe working practices that shall be followed on pilot boards. The pilot boat deck safety is dealt with in a separate chapter.
The other chapters address the pilot transfer and pilot ladder safety campaign concentrating on the proper transfer arrangements and their condition, reporting, training, and data banks. The annexes give additional information about the code of practice for boarding and landing, recommendations of the equipment and closing, and first aid treatment in case of carrying dangerous goods.
