TIN news:  The Britannia P&I Club has highlighted the daily behaviour of a bridge team and their interaction with third parties during a routine operation that ends in disaster through a video release which raises awareness that everyone has a role to play in creating a safety culture within their organisation.
The 22 minute film has been created in real time on a full mission bridge simulator at Warsash Maritime Academy, Southampton, UK. Furthermore, it is based on a number of incidents that have been investigated as part of the Club’s extended root cause analysis into fixed and floating object claims.
The ship is a full container ship of 202m length overall. She has a beam of 31m and draughts 8.6m forward and 9.2 m aft. She is of a single rudder construction with single right hand turning propeller. The low speed diesel engine is direct geared shaft arrangements. She has one bow thruster. The ship is in good condition with no defects reported with any machinery.
The bridge team is made up of the master, 3rd officer and helmsman. They are all experienced in their roles but are not overly familiar with this particular port. The chief officer is stationed forward to recover the anchor. The second officer is standing by on the radio ready to proceed to the aft mooring deck. The bosun is also standing by on the radio.
