Fidra Films, the UK production company behind the recent Be Cyber Aware At Sea campaign, is turning its attention to the dangers faced by pilots on a daily basis for its next movie project.
Chris Young, the founder of the maritime educational film company, said the film would look to help improve the safety of pilot ladders and pilot transfer arrangements.
Recent surveys show that an average of approximately 20% of all pilot ladder arrangements are non-compliant, and are therefore unsafe to use.
“A reduction of this figure is our primary target, by delivering education and encouraging enforcement,” Young said.
It’s intended that the film will be part of a larger campaign, begun a couple of years ago on Twitter using the hashtag #dangerousladders. This campaign has brought together pilots and their representatives from across the industry and the globe, many of whom have contributed to the groundwork for this film project.
