Ship Safety


Published on

Ship Safety 2009 brings together all the major global experts under one roof to share their insights on uncovering all safety challenges in ships by incorporating safety measures across the entire shipping organisation. This cant-miss conference is an ideal and significant opportunity to bring together the major players in the industry to:

Review the latest technology that will move fire protection and safety forward within the shipping industry
Assess all aspects of passive fire protection and fire behaviour to gain a better understanding of safety management
Evaluate individual ship security risk assessments and plans to determine ISPS code compliance and where the gaps may lie
Examine the long term perspectives of sustainable safety practices
Instil the right training skills within crew members to meet safety objectives on day-to-day occurrences to better prepare them for future hazardous incidents
And much more!

We have also incorporated a masterclass covering the key issues within ship safety today. This will be led by a first-hand expert, who is himself a survivor of the great tragedy that befell the MS Estonia. He will share not only his strategies for survival on that fatal day but how this experience has given him both the strength and insight for leadership management and instilling this quality in others. Through practical examples, a real-life case study and group sessions, this masterclass will arm you with the tools that you will need to optimise ship security whilst meeting both business and safety requirements.

  5. 5. Post-Conference masterclass Optimising ship security and safety Monday 30 November 2009 Urban Lambertson, Leadership & Management Consultant, LaMbertsON CONsULtiNg about the workshop: This masterclass deals with the key issues within ship safety today. Mr. Urban Lambertson is a survivor of the great tragedy that befell the MS Estonia. He will share not only his strategies for survival on that fatal day but how this experience has given him both the strength and insight for leadership management and instilling this quality in others. Through practical examples, a real-life case study and group sessions, this masterclass will arm you with the tools that you will need to optimise ship security whilst meeting both business and safety requirements. going from a security plan to actual reality What is it that crew members actually need to do in times of crisis? And what does it actually take to get there? Lessons learned from the MS Estonia: ● Illustrations and extracts from a computer-based example assessment ● Injecting awareness of risk and security management into the entire organisation to have the initial tools for action ● Going beyond safety plans and strategies to build a culture- driven development across the board ● Turning safety challenges into opportunities to create a win-win dimension and strengthen your business Learning to work as a team to increase efficiency and certify passenger safety Training models need to be as close to reality as possible in terms of time, crises effects as well proximity and coordination of crew members. This way, they will be better equipped to deal with the incident at hand and work as a team. This session focuses on: ● Incorporating real-time training, learning and practice to be prepared to meet the incidents head-on ● Combining the stress factor in a training exercise to elevate adrenalin and build awareness of what it actually takes to cope with the situation at hand ● Teaching the importance of trust – trusting yourself as well as your team members with your life ● Meeting the challenge in a rational way and with the right frame of mind ● Developing innovative approaches to reach passengers with ‘tunnel vision’ by developing a routine and increasing focus ● Analysing human behaviour including feelings and reactions to make the most of debriefs and maximise future exercises rescue missions through leadership management Rescue missions in ship incidents are not dependent on hierarchy but rather on the leadership of the crew as a whole entity. This session reveals how to ensure both passenger and ship safety by: ● Assuming dual job functions during a ship safety occurrence ● Building a strong culture for coordinating service, crisis and security management ● Developing a ‘situational awareness' and a focus on the right frame of mind ● Drilling down both routine and automatic systems process building awareness and responsibility in a synchronised manner What happens to the responsible organisation after a catastrophe occurs? This session deals with developing a crisis management function post-incident to rebuild the trust of stakeholders, staff and the shipping industry by assuming the proper responsibility and coordinating efforts to build awareness and support all parties involved.
