Water recovery CBT launched by Videotel

Videotel reports that it has developed a new training programme for Recovery of Persons from the Water (Man Overboard Edition 2), which is aimed at ensuring all crew aboard a vessel are properly prepared for such an emergency.

The company says that the new programme is a response to requirements added to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) as of July 1, whereby qualifying ships must have ‘plans and procedures for the recovery of persons from the water’ which will minimise risk to the rescuers as well as to the casualty or casualties.

"As with any incident, the first response is crucial. The actions of every member of the crew are vital to a positive outcome," said Nigel Cleave, Videotel CEO.

"Best practice has been developed over a number of years using the experiences of many generations of seafarers and the introduction of new rescue equipment – our role is to ensure that expertise is brought into play when needed."

Recovery of Persons from the Water (Man Overboard Edition 2) covers prevention; planning; the first actions to take when a person goes overboard; the responsibilities of the watchkeeper and Master; the processes involved in searching for the casualty; preparing to rescue the casualty; recovering the casualty into the craft; recovering the craft and caring for the casualty.

The training video is available through VOD (Videotel On Demand), VOD Online, and e-Learning CBT, and features an accompanying workbook.
