Important safety information when using the davits

Following the completion of repairs to the Western Davit (where the Paul Adam RIB is hoisted), there are new blocks and winch Lines that have a different requirement. Members operating the Davits are required to leave the blocks and winch line under tension at all times while the RIB is connected to the Davit. This means that after the RIB has been hoisted to the upper position, the Safety Chain (which we require to be attached) does not ever need to be in tension Рonly attached (as a safety/backup). Also notice in the Photo the distance between the two blocks (they should not be so close as to be touching, only high enough to attach the safety chain).
