Mr. Martin Hernqvist took the center stage delivering a Resource Management seminar in Yangon, Myanmar to a full house audience. The seminar took place at the Meliá Hotel on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 08.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon. Around 230 participants from various sectors of the Myanmar society (healthcare, maritime, aviation, law, universities etc) attended the event. The seminar could not have been made possible without Capt. San Win of Wallenius Marine in Singapore who took the initiative in making the seminar a reality and a success. Other important contributors were the 14 sponsors and the Department of Marine Administration (DMA) along with a large number of volunteers contributing to the success of the event. Everyone was very happy with the arrangements and the outcome of the seminar.

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

Martin Hernqvist, Managing Director of ALL Academy, was invited to speak at the Maritime Conference Myanmar which was held on 15-16 November 2018 at Rose Garden Hotel in Yangon. The event was organised by Myanmar Nautical Association (MNA) and about 340 delegates attended the conference. During the event, Mr. Hernqvist’s presentation revolved around Maritime Resource Management.

Reading from the organisers’ post, the focus of the conference was on major insurance, regulation, environment and job opportunities for Myanmar seafarers, with a focus on how the industry has progressed in its technology adoption strategy, and what more needs to be done.

The conference was the first event ever organised within the maritime industry in Myanmar. The event brought together representatives from regional associations, government entities, shipowners, and major stakeholders with the aim of developing Myanmar’s maritime sector.

MAIB reports lack of pilot and Master communication on CMA CGM Centaurus Jebel Ali berth collision

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

The recent release of MAIB’s report on the collision that occurred on 04 May 2017 involving containership CMA CGM Centaurus and the berth at Jebel Ali port in Dubai highlighted a few important MRM principles. The lack of Master and Pilot communication was just one of them. In the report, it also stated that the pilot-bridge interaction was kept to minimum therefore making it difficult for the master to actively engage in the act of pilotage. There was no shared mental picture for both the pilot and the bridge staff giving no chance for a healthy challenge and response environment.

MAIB remarked: “It is imperative that pilots and ships’ bridge teams work together and implement the best practices of Bridge Resource Management to ensure the safety of both ships and ports.”

Challenge and Response? The El Faro Case

By | Accidents and investigations, Bridge Resource Management, Maritime Resource Management (MRM) | No Comments

The latest findings of the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) on the EL FARO case which was recently published highlighted one of the important concepts of MRM which is Challenge and Response. Despite the suggestions of other officers on three occasions that the ship should change course, the Captain ignored these suggestions.

“We may never understand why the captain failed to heed his crew’s concerns about sailing into the path of a hurricane, or why he refused to chart a safer course away from such dangerous weather,” said NTSB Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt.  “But we know all too well the devastating consequences of those decisions.”
