A Pocket Guide to Recovery Techniques IA947E
by IMO - International Maritime Organization
Gives guidance to seafarers on recovering people in distress at sea. The guide’s principal aims are to help you – as master or crew of a responding ship – to:
– Assess and decide upon appropriate means of recovery aboard your own vessel;
– Train in the use of these means of recovery, in general preparation for emergencies; and
– Prepare yourselves and your vessel when actually responding to an emergency.
