18.104.22.168 LASHING AND SECURING OF DECK CONTAINERSAfter loading containers on deck, particular attention should be paid to proper lashing. Only approved lashing materials of suitable strength and quality should be used in accordance with the vessel’s approved container lashing plan and the Cargo Securing Manual as approved by the flag State administration.
Mixing different securing devices such as left and right handed twist locks and sockets, should be avoided.
During the voyage, the container securing arrangements should be checked regularly and tightened where necessary and such checks should be entered in the logbook or the relevant ship’s forms.
