Free fall lifeboats are designed for quick boarding and release, and to quickly move away from the vessel

There is risk of injury to personnel due to the impact when the lifeboat hits the water, and personnel must be properly secured inside the lifeboat before it is launched.

Safety devices designed to prevent the accidental release of free fall lifeboats must be engaged during maintenance operations.

The crew must be trained in the specific operation of the lifeboat launching equipment on board and the correct sequence of operations must be followed.

Lifeboat launching equipment must be correctly maintained, particularly the release mechanisms.
