European Maritime Safety Agency say deaths at sea risen
With the introduction of the New Inspection Regime (NIR),the Paris Memorandum of Understanding (PMoU) will change is target of inspecting 25% of individual ships calling at each member state to a shared commitment for full coverage of inspecting all ships visiting ports and anchorages in the PMoU region as a whole. The target factor will be replaced by the Ship Risk Profile. The Ship Risk Profile classifies ships into Low Risk Ships (LRS) and High Risk Ships (HRS). If a ship is neither low risk or high risk, it is classified as Standard Risk Ship (SRS).
The company performance criteria for the calculation of the Ship Risk Profile is a new parameter in the PMoU. The PMoU has established a formula which takes into consideration the deficiencies and detentions in the last 36 months of the company's fleet, based on the IMO company number and compares it to the average of all vessels inspected in the PMoU to determine the performance level. The companies will be ranked into very low, low, medium and high. Any refusal of access (ban) will have a negative impact on the ranking of the company and will be subject to more in-depth and more frequent inspections.
According to the latest review of the draft MSC Circular on guidelines for evaluation and replacement of lifeboat on-load release mechanisms, the draft guidelines suggest that, for non-compliant release mechanisms, additional safety measures including the use of fall prevention devices (FPDs) should be employed until the hooks are replaced. However it is understood that, despite MSC.1/Circ.1327, certain hook manufacturers have issued policy statements discouraging the use of FPDs.
in this regard, it can be observed that fitting an FPD of the strop variety need not involve any modification to the lifeboat release gear or davits: no pins, no holes, no brackets, no welded lugs, nothing except possibly attaching shackles to the hook housing. if the lifeboat is then lowered and launched properly, the only additional task for the boat's crew is to unshackle (and subsequently reconnect) the strops- a simple seamanship task that should pose no difficulty for a trained seafarer. Assuming the drill proceeds without incident, no unusual or additional loads will be imposed on the boat or its launching equipment.
