INVESTIGATION INTO LIFEBOAT SAFETY

Please click here  to view an information paper presented to the Maritime Safety Committee 74th Session by SIGTTO, OCIMF and INTERTANKO advising on the results of a survey into lifeboat

The document gives information on the results of an investigation into lifeboat safety, carried out under a joint initiative, using a sample population drawn from member companies.  The emphasis was on determining the causes of lifeboat incidents that resulted in injury to personnel and/or damage to property.  The main findings pointed towards an urgent need for a review of the standards for design, manufacture and maintenance of lifeboats and their auxiliary equipment.
