Achieving SOLAS Compliance for Your Warehouse Management Systems
SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) weight stipulations hold significant practical implications for every warehouse manager within the shipping industry.
Understanding SOLAS Compliance
In response to the Titanic disaster, SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) was created as an international treaty to enhance maritime safety. Over the years, it has seen numerous revisions, the latest in 2016. With sea routes facilitating 90% of global trade, SOLAS's stringent safety protocols have been instrumental in dramatically reducing oceanic tragedies and ensuring seamless, safe trade continuity.
Emphasising Container Weight Requirements Under SOLAS
As a significant component of the SOLAS treaty, explicit container weight requirements are in place. These measures aim to mitigate potential hazards like ship capsizing due to inaccurate weight records. Non-compliance with accurate container weight stipulations can result in several adverse consequences such as injuries to dockworkers, container collapses, cargo damage, and environmental harm.
