Team-Based Cruise Ship Operations

Captain Hans Hederström, Managing Director at Center for Simulator Maritime Training, CSMART, and John Ritchie, Learning Management System manager at CSMART talk about the bridge organisation. They say that traditionally ships bridges are strong hierarchical organisations, however, this factor has contributed to a number of accidents. For this reason, Captain Hederström and Mr. Ritchie present a different type of bridge organisation.

Steps to creating safety

Capt. Hans Hederström, Managing Director of CSMART, stressed the Captain has the role of a leader instead of an operator, willing to delegate and coach officers. Combining Voyage Planning and Bridge Resource Management, as well as effective communication for timely intervention, are vital, he added.
