Description

 Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code 2017 Edition

The  Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code 2017 Edition publication contains the three most important IMO instruments dealing with life-saving appliances, namely the International Life-Saving Appliance (LSA) Code, the Revised Recommendation on Testing of Life-Saving Appliances and the Code of Practice for Evaluation, Testing and Acceptance of Prototype Novel Life-Saving Appliances.

It provides international requirements for the life-saving appliances, including personal life-saving appliances like lifebuoys, life jackets, immersion suits, anti-exposure suits and thermal protective aids; visual aids, such as parachute flares, hand flares and buoyant smoke signals; survival craft, such as life rafts and lifeboats; rescue boats; launching and embarkation appliances and marine evacuation systems line throwing appliances; and general alarm and public address systems.

Soft Back Book

Larsens Marine Surveyors and Consultants support maritime distance learning courses, at Larsens Marine Surveyors and Consultants we are authors and course directors of the Diploma in Marine Surveying, Diploma in Surveying of Offshore Floating Units, Certificate in Marine Surveying Practices and Certificate in Classification and Statutory Surveys offered by Lloyd’s Maritime Academy, North West Kent College and IBC Academy.

Bespoke Training

We are engaged in education and training are “trained trainers” who also have experience in the matters which they deliver education and training services. This arrangement allows Larsens Marine Surveyors and Consultants to provide realistic training, in simple language, that actually works in the real world, based on real events and actual circumstances.

Training and education has been identified as a key factor in staff retention and therefore brings added value from a human resources perspective. Staff will feel valued when their employers take the time and effort to identify training needs and to then provide the necessary resources and materials to perform this. There is the obvious benefit of course that staff who are trained for their roles will become not only more efficient and effective but their confidence levels grow, their own perception of their employer’s business improves and so does productivity and pride.

If you are interested in running in-house training courses, please contact us at [email protected] or on +44 (0)1472 826 820 and we will be happy to discuss your training requirements.

Due to the current closure of the IMO, some orders may be delayed. Please enquire at [email protected] prior to purchase.
