The Most Comprehensive and Innovative Virtual Reality Training for Seafarers
Safe access to ships is usually provided via the ship’s ladders, gangways or brow. The means of access to a ship provide visitors with a first impression of how a ship is managed. But when they are incorrectly rigged or poorly maintained, access can become hazardous to both visitors and crew. The purpose of this training package is to improve the safety of gangway and ladder operations by raising awareness and helping those in the deck department to understand correct rigging procedures and maintenance routines.
This training package addresses the Master’s responsibility to ensure safe access is provided to a vessel at all times. It explores every seafarer’s duty to ensure the ship’s boarding arrangements are safe to use and in full working order. Passengers, crew, pilots and other visitors must be able to embark and disembark safely with the assistance of personnel who know and follow the correct operating procedures. Case studies are used to illustrate what can happen if things go wrong.

What the Training Covers
- This training package explores what seafarers can do to improve their mental health and wellbeing so that they can deal better with the challenges of life onboard.
