“Human error” is a contributing factor in most maritime accidents. Lack of teamwork, defective communication, improper attitudes and unsafe company cultures as well as stress and fatigue make seafaring less safe. The Maritime Resource Management (MRM) course focuses on human factor issues. The objective of the MRM course is to ensure that sound resource management practices underpin everyday operations. The principles covered include:
Recognition of the significance of consistent good management and teamwork
A willingness to change behaviour in a positive direction
Awareness of the importance of using common management-related terminology
The MRM course is intended for ships’ officers, engineers, maritime pilots and shore-based personnel. MRM training aims at developing the skills and knowledge of mariners, developing the professional standards and increasing work satisfaction.
