Navigation Accidents and their Causes, 2015 Edition
ISBN: 9781906915322

Navigation Accidents and their Causes looks at major casualties to illustrate the lessons that can be learned from them and sets out practical ways for those on the bridge to consider risks, plan for them and then take action to avoid them.

The authors, drawn from accident investigators, Masters, navigation specialists, pilots and university lecturers from all over the world, detail the need for risk assessment in advance of a voyage, including bridge resource management and passage planning. Situational awareness is highlighted throughout.
Each chapter can be read individually, forming a valuable onboard resource. The overall message is that everyone can learn from the mistakes of others and everyone has a part to play in ensuring that training and experience are used effectively to keep vessels safe.
IMO Secretary-General Mr Koji Sekimizu said: “This timely publication from The Nautical Institute should provide a crucial guide for every mariner serving at sea and serve to assist in reducing collisions and groundings”.

Casualty Management Guidelines, 1st Edition 2012
ISBN: 9781906915391

Casualties are not straightforward and mariners who find themselves involved in them rarely have previous experience. The Nautical Institute and the International Salvage Union have produced these comprehensive practical guidelines to help seafarers during a casualty when demands can be confusing, contradictory, unclear or a combination of all three. Masters and crew members are told what to expect from people or organisations that might be involved as the casualty unfolds.

Chapters are presented in a largely chronological order of how Masters should expect to deal with different people, from owners to government officials, insurance representatives and salvage experts. It will give all involved an idea of the job each may be undertaking, together with priorities and responsibilities.

It should become recommended reading for all those who may fi nd themselves in a position of responsibility during a maritime casualty – preferably well in advance of the event.
Mr Koji Sekimizu, Secretary General, IMO
