Shock Mitigation Objectives
The objective of improving designs, specifying new equipment or changing operating methods is to improve an organisations overall performance.
Improve Operational Efficiency
Professional RIB operations may include being on the water for extended periods and in extreme conditions which can result in a high incidence of injuries to crews.
The helmsman, crew and passengers of RIBs and High Speed Craft can be made safer and more effective by improvements to work station design and specialist training.
Reduce The Effects Of Shock & Vibration
Causes of 'shock' are random 'hits' of up to 15G from head sea impacts or from overtaking following seas. A single event can result in a sudden chronic injury.
Causes of 'vibration' are continuous 'hammering' such as short steep seas or wind against tide conditions. Extended exposure can result in muscle fatigue and injury.
Understand Operational Requirements
New or changing operational requirements, from maritime emergency situations to reduced fuel budgets, can lead to smaller boats operating for longer periods.
Established organisations are committed to the boats and equipment that are currently in service. New organisations have the opportunity to select new designs and technology.
Effective Shock Mitigation Strategies
There is no 'one off' solution to the demands of faster boats and extended periods at sea but an effective shock mitigation strategy can significantly benefit all operations.
