Cargo Gear Testing

Maintaining a high-level of safety for the operations of cargo handling equipment is of significant importance to ship-owners and seafarers. All cargo handling equipment onboard should be inspected by trained, experienced, and responsible officers prior and after use. No equipment should be used or operated unless the certificates of tests and examinations are onboard the vessel and valid.
All Lifting Appliances and Loose Gears should be annually inspected. Cargo handling equipment should be operationally tested with their specified maximum operational load and certified by Approved authorities every five years.
