Safe access on to vessels

From 30 October 2019 until 31 December 2019

Owners and masters are reminded of their responsibility to provide a safe means of vessel-to-shore and vessel-to-vessel access and egress.  

This follows a recent near-miss incident where a crewman had extreme difficulty disembarking safely from a large fishing vessel alongside.  

See Maritime Guidance Note 591 - Safe Means of Access of Fishing Vessels and Small Vessels in Ports - dated 24th August 2018 for more information.
