Crew access to training manuals

During ship visits the Club inspectors always look for the SOLAS training manuals that are supposed to be prominently displayed in public rooms, such as the officers TV room and Crew TV room. Sometimes these manuals are found stowed away in draws, cupboards or under a pile of newspapers/magazines.

The images show how the problem is solved on one entered ship. A perspex document rack is fixed to the bulkhead for the purpose of stowing training manuals. This also creates a good impression with Port State Control Officers and ISM surveyors.
