Important new Training programme from Videotel: Boarding and leaving a vessel at sea

by admin

When a simple missed step can mean the difference between life and death, training comes into its own. Boarding and leaving a vessel at sea or anchorage can be dangerous and Videotel’s new training programme, Boarding and Leaving a Vessel at Sea, has been designed to tackle this issue and address the need for better working practices in this area.

“Seafarers often have to deal with hazardous situations before they even get onto a vessel, ” says Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel Marine International. ”Not only is the actual boarding itself sometimes difficult and hazardous, but the equipment – from the launch itself to the personal protective equipment (PPE) supplied – may not meet required standards. This is especially hard to control when contractors and third parties are involved.” 

This programme has been designed in conjunction with BG LNG Services and is intended to help individuals board ships at sea in a safe manner.  It raises contractor awareness of safety standards and other issues and ensures a more consistent quality of service among third-party suppliers.

Addressing a range of maritime safety regulations, the programme is especially valuable for those joining a ship for the first time, but is targeted at all maritime professionals needing to board or alight from a vessel at sea.
Containing six stand-alone sections that provide valuable information at each stage of the boarding process, Boarding and Leaving a Vessel at Sea is available in VHS/DVD, via interactive CD-ROM and on Videotel’s computer delivery system Videotel On Demand (VOD).
