A new training program has been launched by Maersk Training that aims to minimize incidents through human error in marine environments. The course is designed to help offshore workers understand the impact of the human error in marine incidents, and enhance their leadership and management skills to prevent them.

This course meets the latest mandatory requirements for approved training in the Human Element, Leadership and Management at Management level as directed by the STCW2010 convention and based on the Merchant Navy Training Board’s criteria. The five-day program will build on the theory using a range of practical exercises designed around shipboard drills, bridge and engine room simulation and maritime experiential team exercises. It will be available for marine professionals from November 2013 onwards.

Stuart Cameron, Maersk Training, U.K. Managing Director, commented,  “Incidents at sea can be minimized through an improved understanding of the human element, as well as effective leadership and communication on board ships. It will enable Masters and Chief Engineers, Chief Mates and Second Engineers to apply regulations, policy and procedures, and acquire certification under SCTW regulations.  Due to the current pressures in the industry, it is also very useful for operational personnel in shore-based roles.”

Maersk Training in Newcastle also specifically addresses safety issues in offshore renewables environments through a course that provides managers and supervisors in offshore wind, wave and tidal with the essential tools for competently and safely leading their teams. The course, named Managing Safely for Offshore Renewables will be run from early December onwards, and is approved by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH), the world’s biggest health and safety membership organization.

“It is crucial that staff working at sea develop a deep appreciation of the hazards associated with offshore renewables at all stages of asset life, understand the process of how to assess the risks associated with those hazards and mitigate against them,” Cameron added. Offshore managers must develop a broad knowledge of the onshore based and maritime based health and safety legal duties relating to an offshore renewable project and know where to find help and guidance. We provide them with the knowledge and tools necessary to review their own departmental systems, introduce new controls and ultimately ensure safety in the workplace.”
