In life, not everything goes as planned. More so for jobs on board.
When unexpected things happen in your vessel, how do you view them?
While it is common to point to human error, the truth is that the crew should not only be seen as a source of error but rather as a resource of safety. And there could be more reasons behind the difference between ‘work as imagined’ (the ideal way we envision to accomplish a job) and ‘work as done’ (the actual execution of the job)
When we do so, we get a complete and more realistic view of the various things that influence crew and team performance.
This approach helps the crew, leaders, and the organisation:
TIP: Toolbox talks and work debriefs where all team members actively participate are some ways to help bridge the gaps. Find easy tools in the SDLL to optimise these activities.
TIP: Fatigue management and mental health awareness are two modules that help the crew prevent job stress and create an open and caring atmosphere.
TIP: The Safety Delta cycle includes the Development stage where the crew strengthen their knowledge on certain areas identified in the Diagnosis stage. As you finish each cycle, take note of the learning opportunities linked to the CSD report result.
TIP: Even though how the industry should comply is still unclear, working with Safety Delta now will help you fulfil requirements that are already here or will come in the near future. We will ensure timely updates of the learning materials to help your vessels comply.
Safety Delta helps you to identify and manage the human factors that influence the crew’s behaviour and performance.
It is an ongoing, collaborative process that aims to promote a proactive and resilient safety culture.
Because you continuously evaluate, discuss, and learn, you can find ways to bridge the gap between ‘work as imagined’ and ‘work as done’.
We will talk more in detail about how Safety Delta can help you manage human factors using the ‘5-5-5’ tool, as well as the safety areas and modules that you can refer to. Stay tuned!
Our free Safety Delta familiarisation webinars are still ongoing. Catch them on these dates:
• We are happy to welcome two new vessels from Stenersen AS – Sten Fjell and Sten Skagen.
• Berge Bulk Maritime is on their way to complete cycle 2 this year, with 59 vessels expected to participate.
