Future Safety were pleased to be asked and sponsor the MAN OVERBOARD event at Grand Harbour Southampton to show and discuss our range of high performance marine safety rescue helmets.
Man Overboard Workshop 2018
Workshop topics covered MOB prevention, including improved operating procedures. Use of ‘fit for purpose’ personal protective equipment was covered, hence the request for our attendance. Personnel transfer looks at preventing MOB incidents and injury between vessels. Primary reactions highlight effective responses to MOB situations including fast location of casualty.
Solutions range from simple and effective crew lookout to complex electronic devices.
MOB communication starts with returning to the person in the water rapidly then expands to engaging shore side emergency services, air sea rescue and other vessels. Managing the casualty examines lifting onboard considering injuries, immediate treatment and the survival timeline. After effects of an MOB incident range from personal care for the survivor and their family to legal issues for the employer
