The STCW, MLC 2006 Conventions and other relative to Human Element IMO circulars have as “target” the Human Element on board. In addition ISM and ISPS codes, provide some additional training and qualification requirements for some key personnel ashore like Designated Persons and Company Security Officers.
Expand your knowledge on the Human Element in Shipping and Implement the proposed “Competencies Matrix” on board and ashore.
As per IMO definition human element is a complex issue that affects maritime safety, security and marine environmental protection and is published by the relevant Resolution A.947(23): Human Element Vision, Principles and Goals for the organisation including Vision and Goals. Training and qualified personnel are very important factors for the safe and secure management and operation of ships, while the competencies of each person involved, need to be continuously evaluated and analysed. This course describes the main Human Element issues for the persons onboard and ashore that must be considered so that trainees can be able, using the gained input, to implement the last part of the course which is the “Competencies Matrix”.
