The twenty-eight issue of the human element bulletin is dealing with the surveys. The inspectors and surveyors normally interact directly with people, mainly with the seafarers. That is why they require to have not only the professional knowledge and technical skills allowing to do his/her job but also shall possess some of the important human element attributes.
Of course, they are not expected to be experts in human element; however, they should at least be aware of the relevance of human element in the ship design, construction and operation. It is preferable if the surveyor has held some senior position when working at sea - in this case the surveyor will be able to use the technical skills and practical experience to make professional judgment.
They shall be up to date with the latest regulations and have a clear understanding of the technological developments and their practical application on board ship they survey. In addition, the surveyors shall demonstrate their leadership and their ability and willingness to establish effective communication with the persons whose native language may differ from the surveyor's first language. Finally, they shall be able to produce concise and readable survey reports concluding their survey on board.
