Cargo Lashing and Securing


When we are engaged in the stowage, lashing and securing of heavy cargo units on deep sea vessels, the surveyor should monitor the safe handling and loading of the cargo units, give advice on proper stowage and verify that the cargo units are lashed and secured in a seaworthy manner.
It is important that adequate load-spreading measures are taken, if so required, to prevent exceeding the maximum permissible loads on a ship’s tank top or hatch covers. In this course you will be able to calculate the required number of lashings in order to prevent transverse and longitudinal sliding of cargo units and respectively the tipping of cargo units. Control the type and quantity of lashing materials used and on the correct appliance of such lashing materials.
