Thursday 21 April 2022: Pilot Ladder Safety Webinar


published on 16 April 2022 246 -

This event lies in the past.
Thu, Apr 21, 2022 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CEST

The Nautical Institute (NI) and the International Maritime Pilots’ Association (IMPA) have been concerned for many years at the needlessly high rate of Pilot Ladder casualties.

The NI are continuously reminded of the problem from our Members and through our Mariners’ Alerting and Reporting Scheme (MARS). The issue features frequently in our publications, and we recently dedicated an edition of our award winning magazine The Navigator to the topic, emphasising the importance of good seamanship in ensuring safety. (www.nautinst.org/resource-library/navigator.html)

IMPA have recently published their annual Safety Campaign results 2021 (www.impahq.org/safety-campaign-results-2021) indicating that non-compliance with long established SOLAS regulations remains regrettably high - with little change from previous surveys. Progress is not happening. Still pilots are being injured and still lives are being lost during pilot transfer operations.

In this Webinar Nick Cutmore, the Secretary General of IMPA and Capt John Pearn, Chair of the IMPA Safety Committee, will report on their findings and discuss how good seamanship can literally save lives.

This webinar will be interactive, inviting feedback and questions from attendees. A certificate of participation is available to all those who attend.
