Statistics continue to show that human factors are the root cause of 65% of maritime related incidents and accident with tangible and direct financial costs, safety and environmental issues.
IAMI (International Association of Maritime Institutions) and IMarEST are two maritime organisations closely involved with delivering professional maritime training standards. In 2010 the IMO made significant changes to the International Standards for Training, Certification and Watch keeping (STCW) requirements. These included the introduction of mandatory training at an operational and management level in human factors, leadership and management (HELM).
In 2014, IAMI and IMarEST organised an initial conference to look at this relatively new training requirements and to understand how they were being delivered to mariners. This second look at HELM training takes its focus on the theme of "Human factor training - is it working?”
Delegate costs are £130 (plus VAT) for members of IAMI or IMarEST and £150 (plus VAT) for non-members.
