Obviously fake and manipulated certificates of Pilot Ladders
On the first day of the "IMPA safety ladder campaign 2020", Joris Stuip, Vice President PTR Holland is rightly upset about obviously fake and manipulated certificates at Pilot Ladders. They are playing with the safety of the pilots.

Opinion of Joris Stuip, Vice President PTR Holland:
"Is this a certificate or a piece of paper issued by the shipchandler stating that the NON compliant pilot ladder from PRC is compliant, I believe with this kind of practice we will never have safety for the pilots since the people on board simply believe that a ‘certificate’ issued by a presumably well respected company is good and are not aware they offer a very dangerous ladder to the people that need to board the vessel, very sad I believe and we can really not blame the ships operators or their crew."

"No hard hats, no Hi-Viz clothing (in case pilot falls in) the one at 5:16 has not even got a life jacket - absolute cowboys!"

Editors note:
"The pilot's greatest enemy is often the pilot himself: Please do not carry a backpack together with your life jacket! The backpack can massively hinder the deployment and the effect of the lifejacket!"
