Video Safe at sea with satellites (AIS)

Found on YouTube. Created by "European Space Agency, ESA"

At sea, space technology is used to help save lives every day: managing traffic between ships, picking up migrants and refugees in distress or spotting oil spills. The European Space Agency is once again at the forefront developing new technologies and satellites: to keep us safe at sea and to monitor the environment. Space makes a difference here on Earth and certainly at sea where there is no infrastructure.

Video How not to climb down a Pilot Ladder

The video was found on some social media channels in June 2020.

When so many elementary mistakes are made and so many risks are taken, this is exactly what can happen!

It's a demonstrative example of an unprofessional action:
1) Where is the life jacket?
2) No backpack on the shoulders. Use a rope to have the backpack lifted by the deck crew.
3) Where is the rest of the crew (on vessel / on the small boat) for safe assistance?

What other mistakes have you discovered?

We do not put videos of accidents on our website out of voyeurism. We would like to point out that the work of a pilot or a seafarer is always dangerous, especially when embarking and disembarking!
These incidents should be a warning. It can hit anyone out of carelessness.
Dear people, please always be mindful and always think of your safety!
We hope no one was seriously injured.

by Marine-Pilots.com - published

The Arctic magnetic pole does not move anymore. It runs, faster and faster. In recent years, even faster than expected. Therefore, geo-researchers have now had an unscheduled change to their world model and adjust their calculations, so that navigation with compass and other navigation aids such as a Pilot Plug, used by pilots around the world, continue to work.
