In this video, international safety expert Professor Patrick Hudson highlights the challenges that organisations face as they try to implement processes to improve their safety performance. He discusses his safety culture ladder model, and how companies can assess their safety maturity by using this model.

The root cause of many groundings and collisions, lost anchors are among the top five reasons for claims costs. A rising number of anchor losses reported over the last several years prompted DNV GL, Gard and The Swedish Club to investigate this issue. Based on an analysis of damage cases involving anchor and anchor chain losses, the project partners have issued a presentation identifying the most frequent technical and operational causes, and some steps crews and operators can take to address them.
A new initiative launched by CHIRP and sponsored by the Standard P&I Club aims to promote safety awareness amongst seafarers. This is the first video of video series of ‘maritime feedback bulletins’ which are due to be released on a quarterly basis and available to download for use on a PC or tablet, DVD or USB drive.
