IMO A Pocket Guide to Recovery Techniques 2014 Edition IA947E
SOLAS requires all ships to have ship specific plans and procedures for the recovery of persons from the water. This pocket guide contains guidance on recovery techniques for people in survival craft and other small craft as well as for people in the water.
As a seafarer, it is your capability that matters in a rescue situation. This Guide focuses on recovery and the work you may have to do to achieve it.
It is intended as a reference document for both captain and crew and well worth reading before an incident.
