TMC MARINE, BUREAU VERITAS AND LONDON P&I CLUB ISSUE GUIDANCE ON REDUCING ON-BOARD SYSTEMIC FAILURES


12th March 2019

TMC Marine and Bureau Veritas, the casualty & salvage experts, have teamed up again with the London P&I Club in order to address risk in shipping. This is to help prevent injury, loss of life and damage to ships and to cargo. The focus this time is on better on-board systems to meet the requirements of the ISM Code’s Safety Management Systems to reduce risk and develop a culture of continual improvement.

This new booklet provides clear, practical advice to help prevent systemic failures. Key elements highlighted include the management of change, as well as work planning meetings and the importance of a Permit to Work system. The circular nature of the Safety Management System (SMS) is also emphasized.

TMC are very pleased to have applied their long experience of investigating shipping casualties to another worthwhile project, and look forward to further such cooperation in the future. The booklet can be downloaded from:
