Seafarers still dying in enclosed spaces

Seafarers still dying in enclosed spaces
Despite much effort being put into formulating training programmes and initiating legislation, experienced seafarers continue to die as a result of forgetting or ignoring the most basic of rules.

Despite much effort being put into formulating training programmes and initiating legislation, experienced seafarers continue to die as a result of forgetting or ignoring the most basic of rules, says UK-based training provider Videotel programme.

It has produced a film that sets out to explore the main reasons why so many seafarers lose their lives in such tragic circumstances. Based on real case studies, the programme shows how five highly experienced seafarers lost their lives and how another almost suffered the same fate because of that natural human instinct, to help as quickly as possible a person in trouble.

Videotel says it hopes that by distributing this programme, it will make seafarers think much more seriously before entering enclosed spaces.

Captain Timothy Crowch, a former commercial airline pilot who now works with organisations around the world in the development of safety management systems, presents the programme. In so doing, he points out that the airline industry has for many years endeavoured to understand the factors that lead to human error; simply to attribute a death or injury to human error and leave it at that is no longer acceptable, if it ever was.
