Seminar Details
GL Academy Hellas is offering on  3 April 2012, a one-day  workshop on Crew Safety. There are times when a ship’s command is confronted with a life or death situation. We are talking about a man-over-board (MOB) incident occurring on the high seas. In this situation, when the ship and its crew are searching desperately for a small round head in the immensity of the huge ocean, the Master may say to himself:  “Thank Goodness he was wearing preventative clothing and a personal locator beacon……” But what if he wasn’t?
By targeting the key issues which are in fact the basics when undertaking a standard sea safety training course, the aim of the seminar is to improve the background knowledge of those who are responsible for personal safety on board seagoing ships. The focus is on the importance of wearing preventative clothing such as survival suits and lifejackets and understanding how direction finding systems in connection with personal locator beacons and EPIRBs can help to recover a person from the water. The course also explains how to operate key instruments such as COSPAS-SARSAT, 121,500 MHz, HOMING and Direction Finding.
By studying real MOB cases in two different locations (German Bight and Indian Ocean) the participants will learn how the person in the water felt at that very specific moment when he went over board, how they felt when alone in the sea, what they did to fight the cold and how they contributed to their own rescue. The course ends with a final discussion on the broader topic hypothermia and its seriousness in MOB situations.
