Human factors are crucial in critical situations.
The Manila Amendments to the IMO Convention on Standards of Training
Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) recommend teamwork,
communication and leadership training for all deck and engine officers. Not
without good reason as, according to EMSA, 62% of all ship accidents are
due to human error. Furthermore, root cause analysis clearly shows that
mistakes are in no way only attributable to the lack of training or negligence
of individual employees. The real factors that determine your ship‘s safety,
and whether clear-headed action is taken, particularly in critical situations,
are to a great extent to be found at the level of group dynamics.
Internal communication, situational awareness, stress management, decision
making ability and calm and effective team action are all critically important.
Human Factors are therefore the main factors that determine the safety
and well-being of your ship and her employees, passengers and cargo. With
specially tailored Bridge Resource Management Coaching, we bring teams
together emotionally, strengthen team spirit and establish an atmosphere
