This penultimate issue of the human element bulletin is devoted to the risk management. In the twenty-sixth issue of Alert the focus was made on the fundamentals of the IMS, i.e. integrated management system. The serious demand for the effective processes and working systems related to the health and safety, quality and security as well as environmental awareness was underlines - they shall be combined with the established good working practices.
Numerous amendments have been made to the content of the ISM Code since then and one of them was introducing the changes in Section 6.2 of the Code requiring companies to ensure that each of their vessels is duly manned to maintain safe operations on board. In fact, manning issues can present quite serious risks therefore due attention should be paid to the safe manning principles.
Some guidance on proper interpretation of the safe manning principles has been provided within thirty-second issue of our bulletin. The ISPS Code, in turn, is covering the general aspects of shipboard security plus security in ports; however, the content of this Code does not address such newly introduced risk as cyber attack which should also be considered.
