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.
