Watch: Dangerous Ladders campaign launched

As part of the newly-launched Dangerous Ladders campaign, a global initiative to improve the safety of pilot transfer arrangements and in particular the safe rigging of pilot ladders, Fidra Films has developed a series of informational and educational films to illustrate the dangers and also best practice.

How to conduct a safe pilot transfer by helicopter

More and more ports around the world are now using helicopters to transfer the pilot to and from the vessel instead of the more traditional use of a pilot boat, North P&I Club informs. Despite the fact that this means that pilots can now transfer in increasingly challenging weather conditions, it also introduces new risks, of which ships’ crews should be aware of.

While the number of Fixed and Floating Object claims has remained stable, the number of high value claims has risen alarmingly in the last two years, West P&I Club informed. The Club has seen a succession of extremely costly FFO claims occurring whilst vessels are in harbours or rivers and proceeding under pilotage.
