RightShip collects and analyses a vast amount of incident and near-miss data from industry data providers and our vetting and inspections team. Given this, we believe we are well-placed to publish Best Practice and Lessons Learned Circulars, focusing on areas where we have observed increasing incident trends.
For example, 2017/18 data shows that Mooring and Main Engine-related issues continue to dominate. During this period there were over 200 mooring-related incidents 150 main engine-related failures. These incidents caused damage and disrupted regular operations, and in most instances could have been avoided.
These circulars will assist Managers in operating vessels more safely and efficiently, identifying gaps in their own practice and driving continuous improvement of internal management systems.
All Circulars are available to view below and to download as a PDF that can be shared within your Fleet.
