Updated Survival Manual For Lifeboats & Liferafts From Maritime Progress is Out Now

Survival Craft manual

The Maritime Progress ‘Vital Actions to be Taken On-board Survival Craft’ manual has been updated with the latest legislation, guidance and best practice.

It is often stated that your best survival craft is the ship you are on! However, if the time comes to abandon that ship your best chance of survival is to have a well-trained and knowledgeable ships complement.

The recently revised and reprinted survival booklet published by Maritime Progress contains information essential to survival if the time comes to abandon ship and take to a lifeboat or liferaft. This includes making effective use of the equipment provided and adopting the correct procedures.

The LSA Code Chapter IV requires survival craft to carry a survival manual with instructions on how to survive. The Maritime Progress survival Booklet (PB1201Z) is printed on waterproof material for storage in both lifeboats and liferafts and has been developed in accordance with IMO Resolution A.657(16) – Instructions for action in survival craft.
