A new safety poster, ‘Mooring Safety’, from the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) explains graphically the hazards that can be incurred during mooring operations.
Eight key messages including ‘Always look where you walk’; ‘Don’t lose your head! Beware of snap back zones’; ‘Make sure that all grating and supports are in good condition’; ‘Always wear the proper PPE’ have cartoon-style illustrations alongside the messages so they can be easily understood in any language.
The twelfth in the series of safety posters, the ‘Mooring Safety’ poster is designed to complement IMCA’s existing document ‘Mooring Practice Safety Guidance’ (IMCA SEL 029 and IMCA M 214).
The A2-sized (420 x 594 mm) posters can be purchased in sets of three at Â£5.00 +VAT for IMCA members and Â£10.00 +VAT for non-members. Members can also download the full commercial printing file sets, with space reserved for inclusion of company logos and references.
As well as safety posters, IMCA produces 23 different pocket safety cards emphasising key points about aspects of personal safety ranging from ‘Preventing slips and trips’ to ‘Personal security’ and ‘Electrical hazards’ to ‘Permit to work’. These are available as sets of 100 cards, and members can download them as a pdf version or full commercial printing file sets, with space reserved for inclusion of company logos and references.
