Obviously fake and manipulated certificates of Pilot Ladders


published on 1 October 2020 394 -

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."
