Guidelines for the provision, care and use of shipboard equipment were not supported by suitable documentation. The only documentation was for mobile scaffolding equipment of different design and not for that in use on the ship.
The action taken by Asia Maritime Pacific by adding the applicable operating instructions and maintenance manuals guidelines to the safety management system and implementing monthly and quarterly inspections addresses the issues.
Documents specific to the scaffold equipment such as operating instruction and maintenance manuals/guidelines were identified and added to the safety management system. Monthly/quarterly inspections and maintenance have been implemented, made and kept on board.
