Navigational Audits – Live Virtual Classroom

Dr Marina Papaioannou, Maritime Academy Hellas

DNV’s Maritime Academy Hellas is offering on 8 December 2021, a one-day course on Navigational Audits.

The biggest risk facing a ship owner is a major navigational incident in spite of the fact that the techniques for safe navigation are well known. When these techniques are professionally executed, navigational risks are reduced.

Navigational audits are a requirement of TMSA and becoming more and more common in other trades e.g. bulk carriers.

This course focuses on the challenge of safe navigation today. It covers the technical background regarding navigation and gives special emphasis to current developments and charterers’ requirements. Participants will be made aware of gaps in their knowledge that could lead to unsafe procedures and understand the huge importance of the human element in the navigational process.

Risk Management and auditing are used as tools to monitor and/or improve individual skills as well as those of the whole bridge team. Improvements to existing Safety Management Systems can also be identified within such an audit. 

Navigating a vessel constitutes a significant risk. Participants in this course will learn how to use the navigational audit as a tool to improve, not only their own, but their company’s performance, while also satisfying charterers’ requirements.

Emphasis will be given on:

·         Involvement of the Human Element (Bridge Team and Bridge Resource Management)

·         Risk Assessment

·         Safe and Effective Navigation

·         Auditing the Navigational Process
