Dialogue is an important part of the Safety Delta cycle. Not only dialogue on board – also the ship-shore dialogue. We would like to help our Safety Delta customers to greater success in this activity.
During the interviews made recently by Green-Jakobsen with Safety Delta users to learn about their experiences with Safety Delta it became clear that vessels often experience that the superintendents are not sufficiently involved in the Safety Delta process; they are not actively putting Safety Delta on the agenda and they do not take part in the ship-shore dialogue.
The superintendents’ missing engagement can be very critical and have negative effect on the crew motivation for safety; it leaves the vessel with the impression that the vessels’ safety is not important to the shore-based organisation.
Therefore, involvement of the shore-based organisation will be the hot topic of this years’ Annual Safety Delta Community Meeting taking place on 28th May 2019.
Through workshops and presentations, we will help and inspire our clients with ways to involve the shore-based staff. We will discuss roles and responsibili-ties, how the shore-based staff can promote the right mindset and become more engaged in the dialogue with the vessels.
For Green-Jakobsen it is very important to support the shore-based staff to become more involved in Safety Delta. Therefore, we are in the process of developing a ‘quick-guide’, a guideline specifically for the superintendents/vessel managers. This ‘quick-guide’ will outline the role of the shore-based staff and pinpoint how they can contribute effectively to the dialogue by suggesting subjects to discuss and questions to make during this dialogue. The guidelines will be supported by open webinars where participants will get the opportunity to discuss the challenges and solutions.
As always, we cherish our clients’ feedback, so therefore we plan to draft these guidelines before the Annual Safety Delta community meeting and distribute it to the participants. Your comments and input are welcomed and will be an important part of the development process of the ‘quick-guide’.
