New Lifeboat Training Film from Walport

Saturday, July 25, 2009

Walport has completed filming of its new crew training DVD “Lifeboat Drills – Preparing for Safety” and is preparing to launch this latest addition to its maritime training film library at the beginning of August.

The film addresses the high number of incidents in which crew members have been injured, sometimes fatally, while participating in lifeboat drills or carrying out maintenance or inspections, and suggests preventative measures and best practice.

Walport’s Jeff McMullen said, “Lifeboats are currently a very contentious issue and this new film is especially topical for those shipping companies that will be affected by the Paris and Tokyo MOU’s joint Concentrated Inspection Campaign on lifeboat launching arrangements which will target around 10,000 vessels over a 3 month period starting on 1st September 2009.  This key safety initiative is a very important issue for ship managers where lifeboat launching arrangements, maintenance records and other applicable documentation will be verified for compliance with SOLAS Chapter III.”

“Lifeboat Drills – Preparing for Safety” is 20 minutes long and available in English-language audio with subtitles in Chinese, English, French, Greek, Hindi, (Brazilian) Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Tagalog.
