New Website PilotladderSafety.com


by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 30 June 2020 294 -

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.
