Philippines Good practice Guide – Typhoon Yolanda – very rough copy available on http://www.intermanager.org/resources/document-library/
Very practical Guide on DO s and DON’T s – please download from our web.
In response to your appeal, Smart Satellite Services has arranged for a dedicated hotline number seafarers can call to communicate with their family and friends in Yolanda affected areas. This hotline number will be moved periodically and stationed 2-3 days in the different municipalities of the Central Visayas region.

Using a SMART Link terminal, seafarers can call the designated hotline number that will connect them directly to the disaster-stricken areas. A designated operator will receive the calls and messages.

Seafarers may leave messages for family, relatives or loved ones who are in the pre-determined area. These messages will be posted on a “PAMILYANG MARINO” public message board visible to everyone in the area.

Please inform your seafarers that on November 22, 2013, the hotline number below will be in the area of TANAUAN, LEYTE. Calls will be received from 05:00H GMT until 09:00H GMT.
Regular satellite rates apply at PhP77.00 per minute.

HOTLINE NO: +8821622998388
We hope that this will assist your seafarers’ concerns about their families back home.
Thank you for your continued support.

Lloyd’s Register provides new DVD to promote safe boat transfers
Short film to educate employees about the best ways to minimise risks when working over water
Lloyd’s Register has issued a new short film entitled Safe Boat Transfers to help provide marine surveyors with comprehensive instructions on how to safely transfer between two vessels at sea.
Working over water and, in particular, boat transfers, during which surveyors switch from a transfer vessel to the boat they are surveying, is a very high-risk activity. The film, originally developed for Lloyd’s Register employees, aims to raise awareness about the associated risks and hazards, and to provide instruction for every stage of the transfer.
It is hoped that Safe Boat Transfers will help to significantly reduce the accidents associated with boat transfers.
Receiving your copy:
The DVD can be ordered from the Lloyd’s Register webstore: http://www.webstore.lr.org.
