Lifeboats are extremely important lifesaving equipment for all cargo ships, passenger ships …
On a ship, a lifeboat is just as important as a life raft, a lifeboat is like a small boat that is kept on board to carry out emergency relocation, to prevent risks such as capsizing, ship accidents, etc…
There must be a mandatory number of lifeboats on board (as defined by SOLAS based on the size and mass of the ship) so that they can be easily accessed and used in an emergency.
There are 3 types of lifeboats:
Like liferafts, lifeboats require timely maintenance to be ready for use in top condition. Although it is not desirable to use it, a lifeboat will help minimize damage and protect the life of the crew in an emergency at sea. A maintenance certificate issued by authorized maintenance from the maker will be a valid document that helps the ship to be operated continuously without interruption in time.
According to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974 and the latest regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as well as recommendations from manufacturers, periodic inspection & maintenance of lifeboats required on marine works must be properly recognized and strictly followed the right process.
