Shareable Survey "Boarding and Landing Arrangements for Pilots" by Ewan Rattray
This survey on pilot ladder safety was initiated by Ewan Rattray.
It is supported and recommended by well-known heads of the #dangerousladders Facebook group like Kevin Vallance, Arie Palmers and others.

Ewan was badly injured boarding a vessel as a Pilot in 2018. He is still employed in the ports industry and is particularly passionate regarding pilot safety. With this in mind, he is using his maritime experience and academic skills to conduct much-needed research into the boarding and landing of pilots. The research requires the collection of empirical data for which he is using a survey. The data will be used to analyse the effectiveness of the current legislation - relating to the boarding and landing of pilots - and to identify any failures in the practical and regulatory process. By obtaining professional views, it will help to develop and support a hypothesis, and the findings can be used to form recommendations for improvement.

"The purpose of this survey is to collect data relating to the boarding and landing of pilots. The data will be used to analyse the effectiveness of the current legislation - relating to the boarding and landing of pilots - and to identify any failures in the practical and regulatory process. By obtaining professional views, it will help to form and support a hypothesis, and the empirical data can be used to form recommendations for improvement."

"Owing to the nature of the survey, and the need for verifiable data, the survey should only be completed by persons involved in the boarding and landing of Pilots; For example, Deck Officers, Deck Ratings, Pilots, Harbour Officials, Vessel Managers or Surveyors. The survey focuses on boarding and landing of pilots from a pilot boat only, and not by helicopter."

"The survey is 100% anonymous, and the data will be incredible valuable in the fight against non-complaint boarding arrangements."


Marine-Pilots.com supports this campaign and wants to spread it through the large pilot community.
Please help everyone to gather more data, facts and figures on the safety of pilot ladders.
We hope to publish the results of the survey in the near future.
Please share this article with your fellow pilots and friends via WhatsApp, Facebook, LinkedIn or the Twitter share button.

The more pilots that participate, the more meaningful the results will be!
