The American P&I Club’s Good Catch Initiative has produced an informative video on human factor and systemic failure.
Good Catch takes into account that although every company’s safety management system is different, there is a common theme that all seafarers’ situational awareness and personal responsibility is tantamount to their own safety, that of their shipmates, the marine environment, cargo and the ship alike. This initiative is a combination of short and focused guidance concentrated directly to the attention of seafarers to assure their understanding that:
- When you identify a hazard before someone gets hurt, it’s a Good Catch.
- When you fix a problem before something bad happens, it’s a Good Catch.
- When you take responsibility for your own safety, that’s a Good Catch too.
The American P&I Club updates its Good Catch series to draw lessons learned and prevent further losses.
