In conducting a Navigation Audit on behalf of clients, our Master Mariners bring a wealth of experience to bear in verifying safe navigational practice and that bridge procedures are consistently and effectively applied in accordance with regulatory, industry and company requirements.
Whether the audit is conducted after a specific incident or near miss, as a regular requirement of your Safety Management System (SMS) or just to confirm statutory navigational obligations are being met, we are on hand to provide you with a tailored solution.
The ‘Scope of Work’ for carrying out a Navigational Audit is as follows:
The main areas and skills that will be assessed are as follows:
The safety consultant’s observations and recommendations are thereafter discussed with the entire bridge team, and with individual officers as necessary. Training needs are identified, discussed with the master and, wherever possible, immediate correction and refresher training is given to relevant officers.
On arrival at the following port, a similar assessment is carried out with the consultant using comparable criteria and noting improvements and differences between the two assessments, subsequently reviewing with the master and producing the report for the company. If required, our consultants can separately assist you in addressing any issues identified.
