Description: Learning objectives
The purpose of Safe Gangway and Ladder Operations (Edition 2) is to raise
awareness and improve the safety of gangway, pilot and accommodation ladder
operations, by helping deck officers and crew members understand correct
procedures and maintenance.
This Reference mirrors the accompanying video’s structure, and contains practical
guidance, checklists, case studies and further resources.
Gangways and accommodation ladders are common sources of accidents when they
are not securely rigged or correctly maintained. An accommodation ladder that seems
potentially unsafe can also lead visitors to form a poor first impression of your ship.
Whether the means of access is amidships, or at the stern, or via a shore-based
moveable gangway, it is of vital importance to rig and maintain all gangway and
accommodation ladder equipment to manufacturers’ specifications and to meet the
recommended safety standards.
Pilots must be able to embark and disembark safely, and the personnel who assist
them must know and follow the correct operational procedures.
The Master is responsible for providing safe access to the vessel, and it is every crew
member’s duty to ensure that gangways and accommodation ladders are safe to use
and in full working order.
