Load Line Surveys

Oro World 14 minutes

Load Lines are key safety components of any vessel. They ensure that there is sufficient reserve buoyancy and freeboard for the ship should it encounter heavy seas or enter less-buoyant fresh water.

This course introduces the concepts of load lines as well as Type A and B vessels. It then discusses the Harmonised System of Survey and Certification (HSSC) and how the load lines should be surveyed annually.
