Recent personal injury cases at mooring stations

The Club has been alerted to a number of recent incidents involving crew at mooring stations, most of which have resulted in horrendous life-changing injuries, one was fatal. 

In recent years it became common practice to mark snap-back zones on ships decks in the vicinity of mooring machinery, rollers and fairleads. However, industry advice with respect to identifying and marking snap-back zones came under review in 2015 following an incident where a deck officer was seriously injured during a mooring operation when standing in a location that had not been identified as being within a snap-back danger zone.
