CAUSES OF MOORING LINE INJURIES
There is a number of factors that can lead to mooring snap back accidents:
Damaged or old mooring lines
Human error due to poor communication
Untrained or insufficient crew for the task
Mooring lines not stored properly
Lack of maintenance
It is the responsibility of ship owners/operators to ensure the appropriate type of mooring lines that are going to be used for the mooring operation as well as to ensure that the mooring equipment is properly positioned and secured in order to minimize danger. They should also identify a vessel’s potential danger of snap back and make sure that the crew is trained on how to prevent mooring line accidents.
INJURIES CAUSED BY A MOORING LINE ACCIDENT
The injuries resulting from being struck by a snapped mooring line can be devastating. There have been many cases in which a seafarer was killed after being struck by a snapped mooring line.
OUR SOLUTION: ANTI SNAP BACK ROPES BY BLACK ROPE
The Anti Snap Back (ASB) is an energy absorbing core, which sits within our mooring ropes and is a twelve-strand, plaited, mixed, polypropylene or HMPE rope. Owing to its rope-like form, held within the heart of a twelve-strand mooring line, if the outer, load-bearing construction breaks, the ASB absorbs the snap-back forces, transforming them from a potentially deadly snap to a much safer slump.
