IALA members continue to work to ensure the safety of navigation during lockdown around the world.
As the world continues to be locked down, provision of Aids to Navigation services are essential services vital for the safety of marine navigation and the continuous flow of food, fuel and medical supplies, along with the many other commodities upon which we all depend daily.
IALA national members, who provide Aids to Navigation services, as well as our industrial members, who produce and deliver Aids to Navigation equipment, follow the advice given by their governments and most of their personnel are now working from home where possible. However, some staff are required to attend their normal workplace due to the essential nature of their work when responding to outages and performing vital maintenance work and keeping their service operational.
One of our national members, the Directorate General of Lighthouses and Lightships (DGLL) of India have produced this video reassuring the general public of their commitment to keeping their service fully operational and ensure safety of marine navigation along their coastline despite the lockdown.
