    ADVISOR - Man Overboard devices:


    The Regulations: All lifebuoy rings intended for use in commercial ships must follow SOLAS regulations (96/98/EC). As far as horseshoe lifebuoys and Life links are concerned, there is no standard commonly accepted by all countries. In this case, each country sets its own requirements for the construction, the design and the durability of such products. Depending on the model, Lalizas Horseshoe Lifebuoys are approved according to Greek and French regulations. Use: The main use for these products is the rescue of M.O.B (Man over Board). In order to facilitate the rescue of those who have fallen over board, retro reflective tapes and bright colors are used to increase visibility.


    Instructions for use: When someone falls overboard, a series of actions should take place in the shortest time possible, in order to effect a rescue. If you have a lifebuoy ring or horse shoe lifebuoy on board, you must throw it towards the person in the sea and notify the person in charge of the vessel. The person in the water should hold tightly and securely on to the lifebuoy, in order to stay afloat. Please keep in mind that the above-mentioned products are effective only when the person is able to swim and can assist to their own recovery. Consequently, if you have children or non swimmers on board make sure they wear the appropriate lifejackets at all times.


    PLEASE REMEMBER that prevention is better than cure! You should ensure that you have taken all possible actions and safety precautions, in order to prevent someone from falling overboard. Practice the MOB procedure during the day and night, in all weather and sea conditions, simulating a casualty using a fender with a bucket attached. Instruct a member of the crew to watch the person in the water and point continuously.
    - Always wear a lifejacket and harness that is correctly clipped on when on deck, at night or in bad weather
    - Make sure that you hold on to a secure part of the boat at all times. One hand for you and one for the boat


    Maintenance / Replacement: These products are designed to withstand most weather conditions and exposure to sun light. However, in order to keep this equipment in good condition, contact with flame, extreme temperatures and any sharp edges should be avoided. Lalizas suggests that you check the products and their straps thoroughly for any sign of wear, especially after use. If any signs of wear are detected, the items should be replaced.


    What can the casualty do? Firstly, the casualty must remain as calm as possible and look for the lifebuoy that may be floating close by. Taking into account that the greatest threat to survival is cold, the casualty should cross their legs and hold the arms tightly together to restrict any movement and consequently the loss of heat. Also, wrist, ankle and neck joints should be closed tightly. A light and a whistle on the lifejacket can be used to attract attention. In most cases, the casualty should not attempt to swim towards the boat, as this will promote the rapid loss of heat and cause exhaustion . In severe conditions, it is better for the casualty to turn their back to the waves in order to keep airways clear of water.


    Recovering the casualty: This is probably the most difficult part of the whole MOB procedure:
    - If there is a boarding ladder on your boat and the casualty has the ability to help themselves, this method is probably the safest and most obvious method of recovery
    - You should be prepared to give immediate first aid, as the casualty may be suffering from shock and hypothermia. It is also suggested that you check whether the casualty needs professional medical attention. - In case the casualty is exhausted or unconscious, an improvised lifting gear will be needed. A short strop with a block and tackle rigged on the end of a halyard will help you get the casualty on board.
