Sec. 7 – Ship movement, accelerating forces and breaking seas

(1) When approaching areas of bad weather, or if there is any other risk of strong ship movement, the employer shall ensure that all persons on board are informed in a timely and comprehensive manner, the vessel’s watertight integrity is established, and safety and protective measures are checked.

(2) When checking the vessel’s watertight integrity as well as safety and protective measures in areas of bad weather, the employer shall ensure that any risk to insured persons is kept to a minimum.

(3) The employer shall ensure that insured persons are warned of the imminent threat of heavy breaking seas during their work on deck.

(4) The employer shall ensure that objects in work and accommodation areas are secured in such a way as to avoid any risk caused by their unintentional movement.

(5) The employer shall ensure that work equipment and tools are used in such a way as to avoid any risk caused by their unintentional movement.

(6) The employer shall ensure that mobile containers are arranged and positioned in such a way that safe extraction and filling is possible even under adverse weather and environmental conditions.

(7) The employer shall ensure that maintenance work on machinery is carried out only under favourable weather conditions.

(8) By way of derogation from Par. (7), repair work may be carried out on machinery if its failure directly jeopardizes the safety of the ship, and if said machinery and parts are secured in such a way that there is no risk of uncontrolled moving parts or energy release. The input of energy due to environmental influences such as wind and current must be taken into account.
