C-Hero® Man Overboard and Land-Based Rescue Davits

 

The patent pending C-Hero® Rescue Davit is portable and versatile, making it an ideal part of almost any vertical lifting rescue. Originally created for Tugboat man overboard rescues, it was then recognized that we could modify it for other rescues with a flat mount version, allowing it to work nicely for workboats, ferries, and many land-based rescues. These davits set a new innovative standard in speed and ease of use.

 
Multiple Davit Applications

Flat Mount Davit on Ferry Boat

Tugboats:

The C-Hero® MOB "Bitt Mount" Rescue Davit attaches securely to all Tugboat Bitts (Even one side of an H-bitt).

This is the first solution designed for tugboats and barges where there is often only one person to affect a Man Overboard rescue of a conscious or unconscious person, and it can significantly mitigate your risk.

Tugboat Sub M Lifesaving Risk Mitigation

Lifesaving: Here are the steps that can apply ISO 31000:2018 Risk Management elements to enhance your risk mitigation for man overboard recovery of an unconscious person:

  • Have an appropriate man overboard recovery solution for each of your boats that assures that the remaining crew is safe by keeping them inside the bulwarks during the rescue
  • Integrate the MOB recovery equipment to use in your TSMS
  • Have all crews trained in the use of your MOB equipment
  • Have regular man overboard recovery drills for each crew
  • Document the details of each man overboard recovery drill
  • Have regular management involvement in watching the man overboard recovery drills and then reviewing the documentation

All other Workboats and Ferries:

The C-Hero® "Flat Mount" Rescue Davit attaches securely to a bracket mounted to the side of a workboat or ferry. For a rescue, the davit lift line hook is attached to a C-Hero® Rescue Pole, which is then used to attach a lifting strap to the person in water. The Rescue Pole falls away as the person is lifted with the Davit.

Land-based Lifting Rescues:

The C-Hero® "Flat Mount" Rescue Davit attaches securely to a bracket mounted to any other secure location for land-based lifting rescues. This versatile rescue davit can be attached to the side of a fire engine or other rescue vehicle, as well any other secure flat wall.
