One cannot deny the importance and value of life. We believe on any ship and at any stage, one of the most vital devices is a lifeboat. Our philosophy about lifeboat is “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”. In case of any worst situations a ship may find, lives need to be able to get off the ship safely and reach a safe place until being rescued. As keeping the crucial importance of the lifeboat in mind, no matter how strong the lifeboat is built, timely tests must be performed to ensure its best functionality and your absolute safety. At AIS Marine & Offshore our experienced team carry out lifeboat inspections all over the world and regardless of who the equipment maker is.

A matter of life and death

At AIS Marine & Offshore we make sure good health and safety of our team and we believe for any sea-bound person, lifeboat safety is utterly important. We know it is not only the person, but families who expects them to be safe hence lifeboats must be absolutely reliable so you can trust them in case of any unexpected and worst situations. The key to ensure your lifeboat is reliable is to test all vital mechanisms regularly.

AIS Marine & Offshore strongly recommend lifeboat inspections should be done at least once a year. Though knowing the importance of lifeboat, it is a good idea to keep a close track of lifeboats on the ship. However, a lifeboat inspection is best performed by well experienced, trained and certified professionals. There are variety of test equipment and techniques that AIS Marine & Offshore uses to carry out operational tests and loads. As there is high risk involved in the process, we make sure to take best necessary precautions in order to minimize risk and ensure work safety.
