In the Classic safety view, humans are perceived as a hazard and error prone. To address this, reactive systems like the International Safety Management (ISM) Code System, Planned Maintenance system and Reporting system have been developed to support daily operations and control and monitor the inherent human risk.
Furthermore, Classic safety thinking supports the idea of learning from failure and adverse incidents by identifying root causes.
We support the Classic approach by creating and delivering services that are tailor made, communicative and of great value to your business.
Helping you to manage the risk through knowledge sharing, assessments and tailor-made interactions at Officer seminar or Emergency drills.
Toolbox of knowledge
Shipping today overflows with lessons learned, some of which address specifics of design or construction while others address more general issues. Whatever the cause(s), it is important that each lesson learned presents a case that provides food for thought.
Whether you are interested in topics specific to insurance - ”what is insurance and how do you most effectively manage claims” or “Critical safety thinking”, for example - or other, more general topics, we will accommodate your needs. Our field of expertise is at your disposal, at your request. Over the years our participation in officers’ seminars has received good feedback and this is without doubt due to the alignment of content to expectations.
We customize emergency exercises to suit your organization. The exercises are run at no extra cost to the assured. Current topics include grounding, collisions, loss of propulsion and fires, crew injuries etc. In order to ensure realistic, challenging and dynamic scenarios, we cooperate with external consultants with expertise in:
- Legal input
*as stipulated in the ISM Code
Management and Operational Assessment
The Safety Management System is a framework designed to capture all possible scenarios onboard, thereby supporting a high level of operational quality. While the system is evaluated through audits etc., we aim to focus on facilitating discussion around key (work) functions that contribute to success and understanding why they work; inevitably, such discussion will also reveal the often neglected behaviour and routines that can prevent incidents from happening.
