A new guidance document has been published by the Marine Transfer Forum. “Offshore Personnel Transfer by Crane – Best Practice Guidelines for Routine and Emergency Operations” aims to support an international market which performs over 5 million passenger transfers every year.
Developed by EnerMech, DNV GL, Reflex Marine and Seacor Marine the guideline benefits from a range of expertise, which reflect the key roles in ensuring safe and efficient marine transfer operations. The development of the guideline involved a period of detailed industry consultation. International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA), Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Damen Shipyards also made key contributions, ensuring it reflects best practice and is relevant to the growing marine renewable energy sector as well as traditional offshore sectors.
