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.
