    Accidents involving survival craft are a leading cause of injuries and fatalities at sea. This publication raises awareness of the hazards associated with survival craft and release systems and provides guidance on their safe operation.

    The book summarises the major regulatory requirements for survival craft release and retrieval systems and looks at the causes of a number of lifeboat accidents. It sets out best practice for lifeboat operations and for maintenance and repair of lifeboats and related appliances.

    The lifeboat launch and recovery checklist is based on an analysis of common faults in accidents and is derived from multiple guidance sources within the industry. It leads the operator through every step of lifeboat operation, including planning, equipment checks, operational checks and recovery procedure. It should be used in conjunction with manufacturer’s recommendations and company procedures.
