New Website PilotladderSafety.com
Recently, Herman Broers launched the website PilotladderSafety.com.

This website’s goal is to increase pilot ladder safety by showing good practice examples regarding the rigging and use of pilot ladder arrangements . Do it right the first time!

Directly to the website: www.PilotladderSafety.com

Every day around the world, maritime pilots board and disembark ships using pilot ladder arrangements. When the pilotladder is not used properly, a routine procedure can turn into a critical hazard . Unfortunately we still see a lot of accidents resulting from badly prepared pilot ladders.

Let us use the power of internet to make things better, from a positive point of view. Sharing good practice examples, sharing how it’s done right, the first time .

Every contribution to this website is welcome. If you want more information regarding this initiative, send him a direct message or contact him via info@pilotladdersafety.com.
