Bomb Threat and Search

Thesi Consulting 49 minutes

The threat of a bomb or IED - Improvised Explosive Device on board a ship is a major security concern for any shipping company. Ships can be extremely vulnerable to such potential threats due to the complexity of their structures, which can offer endless opportunities to conceal suspicious objects. In addition, it is not always possible to ensure systematic control of access to people, visitors, passengers, stakeholder representatives, baggage, stores, spare parts and cargo on board, especially during routine operations and in the light of smaller and less well-trained crews.

How do you deal with a report or threat of a bomb or other weapon? How do you handle alerts and searches?

This course has four main lessons which will cover crime and weapons, explosive devices, bomb threat, bomb search and blast mitigation.

Each of the lessons provided aims to give essential information in order to provide the really necessary elements for the understanding of the problem, the awareness of the risk and the need to never take anything for granted.
