Enclosed Space Hazard Awareness

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

September 2013 sees the launch of another important safety awareness and training poster from Maritime Progress Ltd.

IMO Resolution A.1050 invites Governments to bring revised recommendations for entering enclosed spaces aboard ships to the attention of ship owners, ship operators and seafarers. Maritime Progress poster 1007 “Enclosed Space Entry Safety Signs” has now been totally revised. Whilst the content of the poster is not wrong it needed revising so as to emphasize the hazards involved in enclosed space entry. The revised poster takes its lead from the above resolution and is designed to raise the awareness of the hazards associated with enclosed spaces.

Michael Egan, Managing Director at Maritime Progress comments “Lives continue to be lost at sea through accidents involving enclosed space entry. Many organizations are working to raise the awareness of the dangers so that this needless loss of life can be stopped. Investigations have shown that most casualties are caused by insufficient knowledge or disregard for, the need to take precautions rather than a lack of guidance. Our new poster provides a constant reminder and aide-mémoire for officers and crew and will therefore raise awareness onboard where it is needed”.

The new title “Enclosed Space Hazard Awareness” forms part of the popular “ISM Safety Works”, series of posters which have been continually developed by Maritime Progress since the company’s inception in 1985.

The new poster is available from Maritime Progress stockists from September 2013.
