During a vetting and PSC inspections sometimes observed that the gangways were not operational or not serviced i.e:
Ladders are not usually used in the ports and vessels are mainly using only portable ladders but gangways must be kept in good operational order always.
It happens that the gangway ladders are not been tried out for a long time and the greasing of the wires are also not being done regularly. A regular maintenance and routine trying out of the gangways MUST be done.
