Developments?


Lifeboat Drill


Lifeboats Accidents Jan 94 - Dec 09(Source: MAIB)


Comparison with other accidents*


Current Practices

Off-Load Release Gear

On-Load Release Gear

Unsafe Hooks

Safe Hooks

Simulated Drills

FPDs


WMA’s FPD Survey

  • FPD Issues

  • Not all manufacturers incorporate a pin arrangement

  • Retrofitting not possible.

  • The release gear including the FPDs to be serviced by the original manufacturer, who

    • may have ceased operations;

    • may not have authorised agents in all parts of the world;


Current Practices

Off-Load Release Gear

XXL Lifeboats or Tender Boats

On-Load Release Gear

Unsafe Hooks

Safe Hooks

Simulated Drills

FPDs


New Passenger Ship Legislation

  • Prescriptive rules with a goal-setting regime that emphasised the use of ‘safety cases’

  • SAFEDOR Project – Enhance Safety through ‘innovation’

  • Oasis of the Seas – built on ‘Risk Based Design’ - it would have required 44 lifeboats with 150 person capacity

  • Titanic


Future Developments

  • Norsafe’s ‘Rescube’ - Capacity up to 300 persons


Options for Lifeboat Release Gear

  • Fail to Safe

  • Float Free Capability of Lifeboats

  • Standardisation of Lifeboat Equipment and Design


Amendments to the LSA Code - Issues

  • Resistance or lack of support

  • Manufacturing time, approval from administrations, classification societies.

  • Delays in fitting to the ships

  • Training providers


Conclusions

  • Means to reduce/eliminate accidents;

  • Develop new technology that will possibly replace lifeboats;

  • Persuade industry to achieve commonality in LSA;

  • Devise a set of unambiguous ‘standards’;

  • Improve the safety culture within the seafaring community.
