Pilot Ladder Safety Webinar by The Nautical Institute


published on 12 May 2022 192 -

Found on YouTube. Created by "The Nautical Institute". Originally published on 2022-04-22.
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 is continuously reminded of the problem from its Members and through its 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.

IMPA has recently published its annual 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

published on 10 May 2020

Manoeuvring large ships at close quarters and on shallow water is one of the most difficult aspects of shiphandling because of the complex hydraulic interactions depending on the ships' speeds, on the water depth and on lateral restrictions like in canals.
