Many seafarers may act safely. However, in order for them to start actively contributing to the safety culture by influencing others, self-confidence is key.
But self-confidence doesn’t come easily. It is something the individual seafarer builds over time.
An effective way to support this process is to empower the seafarers. And this is where companies can do something: they can implement processes and tools that empower the crew and make them feel confident in their own safety behaviour. This is where Safety Delta comes in.
With Safety Delta, the frequency and quality of dialogues about safety are increased both among crew on board and between ship and shore. Through open dialogue, safety awareness gets firmly put on the agenda of crew, officers and shore staff alike.
Empowering people on board the vessel also has a positive effect on the ship-shore collaboration. Instead of the office dictating the vessel what to do, Safety Delta can run autonomously on board, enabling crew to decide what needs to be improved.
Through continuous ship-shore dialogues, the office can then gain insight into the safety culture on board as experienced by the crew.
Safety Delta is designed to empower seafarers: It gives the vessels the ability to measure and improve their safety culture.
Crew members from all ranks participate in dialogues about safety and identify relevant areas of improvements. Through this process crew are motivated to speak up, share insights and ideas.
This may sound obvious, but we have seen this really making crews feel empowered and it builds their confidence to speak up and contribute to a positive safety culture.
