Roessland Sets out Life Saving Priorities

Friday, July 11, 2003
Ove Roessland, managing director of lifeboat and davit specialist Schat-Harding, has been elected as chairman of ILAMA, the International Lifesaving Appliance Manufacturers' Association.

Roessland, who outlined his priorities and missions following the election at the ILAMA AGM in Gothenburg this past June, stated his concerns and wishes for his upcoming tenure: "There are too many accidents occurring because critical parts of life saving appliances, such as the life boat hooks, are either not serviced or are serviced by untrained and unqualified people. We intend to put the technical strength of ILAMA to work at IMO to ensure that there is a clear and safe international regime for the inspection and maintenance of life saving appliances. There is a very good regime in place for liferafts, and we want to get that extended to cover boats and davits. I look forward during my next two years as chairman of ILAMA to finding ways to cut down accidents on ships involving life saving appliances, and to enhancing safety at sea."
