Duration: 2 days
How do we make sure that our shore and shipboard operations are re carried out without compromising safety? Shipping is dynamic and change is almost the norm. From the shore management decisions to the ship’s operational necessities dealing with hazardous tasks and new circumstances necessitates to manage change effectively without dramatically increasing the risk to safety or environmental impact of ship operations, as well as the need to maintain business performance.
A management of change process should be included in any mature safety management system. In particular, it is considered best practice in tanker operations as set out in the Tanker Management Self Assessment (TMSA) guidelines.
Instead of reacting on incidents, risk should be identified and analysed in order to evaluate if the existing safeguards are adequate. Starting with identifying the change or task which needs to be carried out, we examine how inherent hazards can be identified and their risk is evaluated and managed. Risk Assessment is solid basis on which the safeguards should be built.
Reference is made to the recent OCIMF initiative where Risk Assessment plays a vital role.
