Overboard sensors not required on cruise ships?
Note; Handrails around the ship and on balconies are a minimum of 4 inch's (100mm) higher than land based/home stairs. Housing standards state; Handrail height, measured above the stair tread nosing, shall be uniform, not less than 34 inches and not more than 38 inches and the cruise states; The Cruise Vessel Safety and Security Act (CVSSA) of 2010 proposed measures aimed at improving cruise ship safety, such as increasing the guardrail height to 54 inches.
Just been sent this from a Major Shipbuilder, with the industry standard on railings and balconies;
‘‘§ 3507. Passenger vessel security and safety requirements
‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—Each vessel to which this subsection
applies shall comply with the following design and construction
‘‘(A) The vessel shall be equipped with ship rails that
are located not less than 42 inches above the cabin deck.
‘‘(D) The vessel shall integrate technology that can
be used for capturing images of passengers or detecting
passengers who have fallen overboard, to the extent that
such technology is available.
