PORT ASSOCIATION ISSUES STARK SAFETY WARNING
Date:2018-12-24 Readers:
The British Ports Association has called on the international shipping community to “face up” to safety concerns on defective pilot ladders and use of dangerously-weighted heaving lines.

UK ports have reported an increasing number of internationally-flagged ships with inconsistent adoption of IMO standards in these areas.

BPA chief executive Richard Ballantyne said: “Too often of late, UK ports and their pilots report that visiting ships provide unsafe pilot ladders and we have also seen the continued use of dangerously weighted heaving lines in ports. Both threaten the lives of harbour and towage operatives.”

The International Maritime Pilots Association recently published the results of its annual safety survey which confirmed that defective pilot ladder provision continues to be a problem globally.

“The shipping industry should collectively hang its head in shame over this continued flagrant activity,” said Mr Ballantyne. “It cannot ignore such problems and must show leadership to correct such practices.” He added that there are still far too many instances of visiting ships at UK ports flouting international rules that are set by the IMO to ensure consistency.
