First company in Japan to achieve full conformity with IMO model course of BRM training

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) today announced that its group company MOL Marine Consulting, Ltd. (MOLMC) has acquired certification for its Bridge Resource Management (BRM) training program from Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (NK), effective May 30.

MOLMC is the first company in Japan to upgrade its BRM training program to meet all the requirements of the model course 1.22 (five-day course) established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The certification reflects MOLMC’s effort and dedication to developing a world-class BRM training program.

MOLMC President Soichi Hiratsuka received the certificate from NK Executive Vice President Koichi Fujiwara on June 2 in a presentation ceremony at NK headquarters.

Eight MOLMC members who have experience as captains of ocean-going vessels draw upon their knowledge to oversee the company’s BRM training program at training centers in six locations including the Philippines, India and Europe. The program helps improve crewmembers’ expertise related to safe operation by providing consistent BRM training for all seafarers who serve aboard MOL Group-operated vessels.

MOL said it aims to eradicate vessel incidents that result in collisions, stranding, or grounding as it forges ahead to become the world leader in safe operation, one of the major objectives of its midterm management plan STEER FOR 2020. The company believes this approach contributes to achievement of its goals, and strives to enhance its safe operation structure through ongoing improvements in training programs.
