Singapore launches new video on navigational safety

Singapore launches new video on navigational safety
Singapore has launched a new two-part video with an aim of promoting and demonstrating safe navigation practices in the Straits of Singapore.

The unveiling of the two full length video was announced at the International Safety@Sea week held in Singapore from 29 August to 2 September.

The safety video was developed following the successful launch of the Safe Passage for the Straits of Malacca & Singapore pamphlet that was jointly developed by the three littoral states – Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia – and Bimco.

MPA said the video also serves as a reminder to local and international users of the Singapore Straits on the navigational guidelines and best practices to be observed, as well as the importance of adhering to the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs).

The video will also present useful local information particular to the Singapore Straits. This includes, but is not limited to, collision prevention measures, night signals for vessels crossing the Traffic Separation Scheme in the Singapore Strait, local rules for ships transiting the Straits of Malacca & Singapore, advice on anchoring and weather conditions affecting visibility such as haze and heavy rain.

MPA will be distributing the video to shipping companies free of charge.
