Mark Bull, Marine Consultant, Trafalgar Navigation, pointed out that we are on the threshold of a major change in our industry; it has already started and it is now picking up speed. During his presentation at the 2017 SAFETY4SEA Conference, he said that the new ‘buzz’ word around us now is autonomous; however, many things need to be considered about that.
Mark Bull FNI, Maritime Consultant, Trafalgar Navigation Limited has shared his forecast for shipping safety in 2017 urging industry stakeholders to take the Human Element into account more seriously, therefore, a strict Code of Conduct is needed.
Mark Bull, Trafalgar Navigation, says that the provision of ECDIS on board today’s merchant ships is causing a ‘revolution’ in the way they are navigated. Like all revolutions, issues that were never considered crop up, and ECDIS is no exception. Above all, he notes, an ECDIS mindset is required.
