Update: "Pilot Ladder Safety" by Herman Broers (07-2021)


by Herman Broers - published on 6 July 2021 84 -

Foreword

During my work as a maritime pilot, many times I encounter badly rigged pilot ladders which do not comply with regulations, guidelines or common-sense seamanship. Looking into this, I discovered there are many things a captain, an officer, or even a bosun, AB or OS has to keep in mind when rigging the ladder. The usability of the documentation in place regarding this matter is not very good. Furthermore, what can be found online are tales of colleagues showing the accidents, the mishaps and the errors they see on a daily basis.

Pilot ladder safety is about a critical operation. For many critical operations onboard there are procedures in place. For the rigging and the use of pilot ladders, often there is nothing in place.

The website pilotladdersafety.com is meant to show the right way to rig and use of the pilot ladder.
