Safe ship boarding to be promoted by Panama Canal Authority July 6-10

THE Panama Canal Authority (ACP) is holds its annual "Safe Boarding Week" from July 6-10, to promote awareness and compliance requirements of vessels in canal waters.

Activities will involve inspections of boarding facilities at both Cristobal and Balboa anchorages by teams representing personnel who normally board vessels.

These will include canal port captains, pilots, transit vessel inspectors, chemists, emergency response personnel, admeasurers, deckhands, as well as ship's agents. 

This year the ACP will continue promoting preventive measures to be taken to avoid the tripping hazards. 

These are created by the retrieving line attached to the pilot ladder and the excess portion of the pilot ladders, which is very often laid out on deck, reported GAC Hot Port News.

Vessels deserving special recognition for excellence will be presented with plaques that will be delivered immediately following the inspection. Any vessel with boarding facilities determined to be below acceptable standards must correct the deficiencies prior to transit, an ACP advisory to shipping said.
