First maritime slips, trips and falls poster

First maritime slips, trips and falls poster

(Posted on 11/05/21)

Maritime Progress, a major player in the photoluminescent marine signage arena has developed a new Slips, Trips & Falls poster designed specifically for the Marine Industry.

Deborah Egan, Director commented “Slips, trips, and falls remain the main cause of incidents leading to injury for seafarers but the unique nature of the hazards and conditions Seafarers find themselves working in meant there wasn’t a safety guidance poster suitable for this unique environment, until now.”

This maritime safety poster reminds seafarers of some simple but effective rules that will keep them and their crewmates safe when working around the ship.

The poster also introduces another and often overseen hazard common to the Marine Industry, that of dropped objects. Dropped objects could be from a person working aloft or a loose item on a suspended load or crane.

The carefully illustrated poster clearly displays safety tips for the marine environment covering:

  1. Trips and falls
  2. Working aloft
  3. Maintain tidiness
  4. Avoiding slips
  5. Machinery awareness
  6. Dropped/Falling objects

The 480mm x 300mm poster is available in vinyl, rigid plastic and photoluminescent material from the Maritime Progress website: www.maritimeprogress.com/product/slips-trips-and-falls-poster/

Maritime Progress was formed in 1985 and was initially a joint venture between The College of Maritime Studies in Warsash, Southampton (Britain’s premier Maritime College serving the International Maritime Shipping Industry) and Atlantic Technical Services, producing technical documentation for the marine industry. In 1994 the company became part of a group under the holding company Warnstar Ltd. Warnstar as well as an umbrella brand for the group, operates in the bespoke signage and printing arena, providing custom and promotional printed signs and products. 2001 saw the development of Signs for Safety, bringing together the extensive range of off the shelf safety signs. In 2008 Telegan Pressed Products joined the group, manufacturing pressed PVC sheets. As a whole, the group produce marine signage & technical manuals, general signage & print (including large format and promotional printed goods), safety signs and industrial products.
