SAFETY INSPECTION -Viking Line Information Folder
SÄKERHETSINSPEKTION -Viking Line Informationsbroschyr

An excerpt of a "safety information folder" received on board M/V Isabella and M/V Amorella 2001.05.27

We have copied the information in this folder describing the safety on board. This in relevance to our inspections of the ships. When reading this information you can compare and draw your own conclusions in relation to the deficiencies found on board. It is also interesting to compare some parts in this folder with the folder "General alarm" handed out on board the ships.

We have left out information of environment and cleaner water, air pollution, garbage procedures, chemical products,waves and erosion, environmental reporting, organisation of environmental work, booking and check in, embarkation and the stay on board as well as most of the pictures.

The information folder was only received in the Swedish language, we did not ask for other languages.


Ett utdrag ur en "säkerhetsbroschyr" som vi fick ombord på M/S Isabella och M/S Amorella 2001.05.27

Vi har kopierat informationen i denna broschyr som rör säkerheten ombord. Detta med anledning av vår besiktning ombord på fartygen. När man läser denna information kan man själv jämföra och dra egna slutsatser i relation till bristerna vi fann ombord. Det är även intressant att jämföra vissa delar i denna folder med exempelvis broschyren "Allmänt allarm" som delas ut ombord.

Vi har utelämnat information rörande miljö och renare vatten, luftföroreningar, avfallshantering, kemiska produkter, vågor och erosion, miljörapportering, organisation för miljöarbete, bokning och incheckning, ombordstigning och vistelsen ombord likväl som de flesta bilderna.
