The tool is intended to help ensure that ship personnel are trained in the proper inspection, maintenance and operation of life-saving equipment, and that equipment is ready for use at all times. According to the partners, the app will help to reduce the risk of port state control (PSC) detentions. It includes a list of deficiencies relating to life-saving appliances found by PSC officers on ships classed by Lloyd's. The full series of six apps, including ILO MLC, ISM & ISPS, Marine Fire Safety, Marine Pollution Prevention, Port State Inspections and the new Life-Saving Appliances are all available on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. The apps enable ships' personnel to view legislative and regulatory requirements, save multiple checklists, check off completed activities, add essential notes and images, and send completed checklists via e-mail.
