ALL Academy jump-started the second half of 2016 with an MRM train the trainer event in Turku, Finland on 9 August 2016 just after the summer break.

Warm welcoming atmosphere in Italy

By | ALL Academy, Maritime Resource Management (MRM), Seminars/Conferences | No Comments

As part of ALL Academy’s goal to reach out to our colleagues in the maritime industry and to disseminate information about what the Maritime Resource Management programme is all about, a half-day “Introduction to Maritime Resource Management” seminar was held in Genoa, Italy, on 22 June 2016. The day before, on 21 June, a smaller meeting took place in Naples.

Our maritime colleagues from Italy gave us a warm welcome during the events and there was a very friendly atmosphere which made everyone at ease during the discussions. The participants were primarily composed of representatives from maritime academic institutions, shipping companies, law firms and insurance brokers. A most interesting discussion dealt with the pilotage issue and participants willingly shared their experiences with the objective of further improving this important part of navigating operations. A special thank you to the Genoa pilots for their contributions.

ALL Academy is grateful for the presence of everyone and would like to thank those who have contributed to the success of these events. See you again in Italy!

The AMSA Marine Notice 11/2016 on BRM

By | Bridge Resource Management, Maritime Resource Management (MRM), Master/Pilot | No Comments

The Marine Notice on Bridge Resource Management (BRM) and Expected Action of Bridge Team in Australian Pilotage Waters has been issued by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority on their website. This is to remind seafarers, shipowners/operators and pilots of the importance of well-planned Bridge Resource Management (BRM) to support safe navigation and minimise the potential of incidents and accidents in the area.

The notice mentioned a set of vital operational tasks that need to be considered during preparation of the passage plan. It also included a reminder on what the role of the Masters will be when the vessel is under pilotage.

This notice is a very good reminder to everyone in the maritime branch where it highlights the important aspects of BRM like “Challenge and Response” techniques, “Shared Mental Model” and “Closed-loop communications”.

To read more about the Marine Notice, please click on the following PDF File and you can also visit AMSA’s website at www.amsa.gov.au.
