The Webinar focused on the following topics/ issues: proper maintenance and use, loss prevention (dos and don’ts) and aspects both P&I and Defence Clubs may be involved with following an incident due to mooring ropes parting. Additionally, a useful guide regarding evidence detention and preservation was discussed.
Finally, a series of case studies were discussed and practical advice to crew and office personnel was provided in case of an incident.
