Meet the Innovation in Safety Award Entrants: MODALINTA – SAFLASH
In the countdown to this year’s Innovation in Safety Award Ceremony we are sharing each of the entries that we received. Whilst there can only be one winner of the award itself, the wide range of entries means that there are ideas that will appeal to different readers directly or may be the inspiration for your own next step change for safety.
We will introduce you all to all of the entries before the Award Ceremony on 23 February.
Today’s entry is:
MODALINTA – SAFLASH
Our innovation, SafLash, is a new lashing system that will directly replace legacy lashing in new builds and the current fleet.
The system has three main features:
- We have redesigned the lashing process to reduce physical effort, eliminate pinch points, eliminate hazards related to poor storage, and make 3-high (long) lashing as easy and fast as single-height lashes.
- A portable impact driver does the tightening and loosening. This approach is much faster, reduces effort and allows a better balance of tasks on deck. The system delivers accurate lashing tension and eliminates guess work by reporting on lashing tension.
- The process is three times faster, reducing “rushing” especially near the hook, which is a major cause of fatalities.
In addition to making the process safer and faster, it ensures, measures, and reports lashing tension. Poorly managed lashing tension is a significant cause of stack collapse and impacts containers lost overboard.
SafLash is a direct replacement for old style bottle screw lashing and can be retrofitted to existing vessels in a single port visit. It is designed and certified to the same standards as the lashing it will replace.
As well as improving safety, SafLash reduces time in port allowing 2-3 hours of slow steaming making it profit positive and environmentally beneficial as well.
