SOLAS Convention

The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) appears for the first time after the sinking of the RMC Titanic in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912. Since 1972, these standards have been improved regularly and they have been administrated by the IMO, International Maritime Organization.

Among all the safety items regarding the life at sea, the fire hazard protection is one of the most highlighted. SOLAS standard requires, for instance, that all the component parts of the sleeping accommodations of the sailors on board must be the made of the most resistant fireproof material. It includes the mattress, certainly, but also duvet covers, sheets and blankets, pillows…even the bath towels.
