Training Matters

Training Matters Good training helps drive a ‘safety first’ culture, changes crew behaviour, leads to fewer incidents, and equips crew with the skills to respond correctly and quickly when accidents do occur. Well-trained crew understand their responsibilities to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their fellow seafarers, the marine environment, and themselves. And for companies, a robust training programme allows them to comply with regulations and helps pass inspections and audits. Equally as important, training also offers a competitive advantage by supporting personal and professional development, and progression through the ranks, producing confident, motivated, and competent crew. KVH Videotel provides comprehensive training solutions for seafarers and shipping companies, using the very best, and most accessible, eLearning programmes and management system.

AIS (Automatic Identification Systems) Video

AIS is a technically sophisticated system dependent on GPS positioning information and VHF radio. The essence of the system is that each vessel fitted will automatically broadcast its identification, position, speed, course and other data to all similarly-equipped vessels and shore stations within a distance of about 30 nautical miles. In many ways, the information will supplement the positional information provided by radar. For more info: sales@videotel.com

Serious emergencies on container vessels are rare but when they do happen, the result is often loss or damage to cargo and, in some cases, loss of life or serious damage to the environment; yet in many instances, the emergency situations that lead to these disasters could be avoided by implementing an effective emergency response. Under SOLAS all ships must carry a contingency or emergency plan. Although this training package applies to every type of ship, It focuses on vessels where the particular problems of confined spaces and dangerous goods provide a challenge to the effectiveness of any emergency plan. It features a classroom-based training session interwoven with video footage of real emergency situations. It works through each stage of an effective emergency response and highlights the importance of leadership, teamwork and the need for a positive safety culture, both onboard and ashore.

The Mooring Series Video

Overview

Running Time: 23 mins

This section emphasises the safety aspects of mooring at all stages, illustrating how mooring schemes are devised and applied safely. It begins by explaining the function of mooring and how typical mooring schemes are determined, showing the information sources which exist for most ports around the world. A typical mooring scheme is shown and procedures for mooring are explained. It also discusses the recommended command structure between the Master, the Pilot and the mooring parties fore and aft, during mooring operations. The same command structure is also discussed where tug operations are part of the mooring operation, either on escort duty or in tug-assisted mooring.

Running Time: 18 mins Code: 1106 Part 3 – Maintenance of Mooring Systems (Edition 4) The mooring system must be able to cope with the foreseeable demands that are likely to be placed upon it at any time. This training package shows the maintenance work that needs to be carried out during a voyage to ensure that the mooring system will work without fail at the next port. It shows some of the most important tasks involved in mooring system maintenance, and how they relate to hydraulic and electrically powered winches. The ship’s maintenance schedule should include periodic inspection of ropes, wires, shackles, stoppers, winches and other parts of the system, such as fairleads.

Navigating in Ice Video

More and more ships are sailing the oceans and many are bound for some of the more remote areas and hostile climates on the planet, so many ships’ crews need to understand the procedures when they encounter unusual conditions – when the sea becomes a solid sheet of ice and their ship becomes difficult, often impossible, to steer and propel. For the inexperienced, these conditions, at best, can lead to damage to the hull, rudder and propeller; at worst, they can destroy the ship. Equally, icebergs have always posed serious risks to shipping.

Workbook

The sheer size of many large bulk carriers can give the impression of great strength. But If a bulk carrier is not operated within its design limits or if fatigue and damage is ignored, the ship could be at risk of catastrophic structural failure. This programme explores some of the common causes of these failures, such as stevedore damage or corrosion caused by certain cargo types, as well as the global stresses on the hull incurred by poor cargo handling or the mismanagement of ballast water operations. Identified as key to managing the risks is an accurate loading plan and an effective ship-terminal relationship prior to arrival and at all stages of loading and de-ballasting as specified in the BLU Code, to ensure the vessel is operated within permissible limits and damage minimised.

For more info: sales@videotel.com

This package will help both managers ashore and ships’ crews to understand their part in cutting cargo claims. Causes of cargo loss and damage are examined, and operational procedures to prevent losses arising are explained. Understanding the needs of the particular cargo, hold cleanliness, hatch watertightness, quantity checking, vigilance during loading and correct ventilation and monitoring during the voyage are the key points covered in the video.

Workbook

At the load port, recommendations include checking the condition of the cargo prior to loading, taking draught surveys, and carefully agreeing a loading plan with the shippers and terminal. During the voyage, the lashing and stowage of the cargo should be checked, bilges sounded regularly and ventilation maintained in accordance with charterers’ instructions and the needs of the particular cargo. At the discharge port, an arrival draft survey is important. Hatches should not be opened until the bill of lading has been produced and all other conditions have been agreed.

Effective Refrigerant Control Onboard Reefer Ships Video

This package is designed both as an introduction for those who have not previously sailed on a reefer ship and as refresher training for others. Many reefer ships rely on freon (CFC) as the cooling agent. The critical factor is how carefully it is handled by the officers and crew members who are in charge of the systems which use this gas. Any escape of freon is harmful to the natural environment and also represents a hazard to those working onboard.

Regulations Addressed STCW

For more info: sales@videotel.com

The other coolant commonly used onboard reefer ships is brine. This is corrosive and has its own potential for damaging the environment. For these reasons adequate training must be given to all those working with these systems. The final message is the need to protect the environment by the careful handling of refrigerants which has the added advantage of helping to run the ship more economically.

Hull Stress Monitoring Video

To reduce the incidence of structural failures, the IMO and leading classification societies have recommended the use of hull stress monitoring systems. This training package establishes that stress monitoring systems assist ships’ officers by providing real-time information on hull stress levels and vessel motion, both at sea or during cargo operations. It explains the benefits of the system. At sea, it allows speed and heading to be set to keep the vessel within acceptable stress and slamming limits. Significantly, the system will display – almost instantly – the results of any corrective action.

Regulations Addressed STCW

During cargo operations, the system provides hull stress information highlighting any departures from the loading plan or the vessel’s maximum permitted stress limits. This is important as small deviations in cargo loading can result in disproportionately higher stress levels and possible permanent damage to the hull structure.

Bringing non-cargo items, such as crew possessions, provisions or spares aboard a ship is a task that can sometimes be a relatively low priority for crews. It may be done in a hurry or with fewer or less experienced people than good working practices dictate. However, when hoists and cranes are used for any task, injury and even death are always a potential. Common failings include poor communication between the personnel involved, disabling safety features of the lifting equipment, and exceeding the safe working load (SWL) of the gear. Any of these mistakes can result in a serious accident unless some simple rules are followed. This training package aims to alert seafarers to the dangers of failing to follow safe methods of working when using non-cargo deck cranes.

Vapour Emission Control Video

Many vapours created by tankers are harmful to the environment. During loading and tank cleaning, these are Vapours often vented to the atmosphere. Vapour emission control (VEC) allows vapours from oil or chemical tankers to be returned to shore in a closed system and then either converted back into oil through adsorption, or burned. This training package provides an introduction to the concepts of vapour emission control and explains how ports around the globe are increasingly demanding that emissions are minimised through VEC. It points to MARPOL guidelines specifying that vessels should have a VEC management plan to minimise emissions during the voyage and when undertaking cargo operation.

Alcohol Beware! A Seafarer’s Guide (Edition 3) Video

In many parts of the world, moderate alcohol consumption is considered acceptable but there is no place for alcohol consumption while working onboard ship. All seafarers whatever their rank (or type of ship on which they serve) have a vital part to play in the ship’s organisation and in an emergency response situation. This updated training package looks at the potential harmful effects of alcohol and stresses the need for seafarers to drink moderately at all times. The effect of increasing blood alcohol concentration on performance and the increased likelihood of an accident are illustrated using graphics. The detrimental effects of excessive alcohol consumption on the brain and liver are also described. About one in twenty five regular drinkers develops into a problem drinker. The training package deals with the difficult topic of what should be done if one member of a shipboard team is suspected of abusing alcohol. It is far better for the individual, the ship and the company if the problem is addressed rather than ignored.

Avoid the Bite – Malaria Prevention for Seafarers Video

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease which always has been and remains one of the world’s biggest killers. Seafarers are particularly at risk from contracting malaria as their job often takes them into malarial zones far from medical help and they may be at higher risk if they have not taken immunity medication. All too often, the dangers are not recognised by ships’ companies or the seafarers themselves. This training package highlights the risks, symptoms, treatment and various ways of prevention that will encourage individuals to take responsibility for the avoidance of malaria and seek medical help if concerned. Using a mix of animation, documentary footage, photos, and graphics. It challenges those who say ‘it won’t happen to me’ and breaks down many of the myths and ignorance that surround the disease and its prevention.

Ballast Water Management (Edition 2) Video

CBT

Regulations Addressed STCW

For more info: sales@videotel.com

Problems with the transfer of invasive species from one part of the world to the other have led to the development of the IMO’s Ballast Water Management Convention. This will largely eliminate the requirement for ballast water exchange and require ships to have onboard management systems that can effectively sterilise the ballast water that has been loaded before it is discharged elsewhere. Many different systems have been developed which require flag state type approval to show that they can achieve the desired standard for the discharge water in terms of numbers of organism of different sizes that are still viable.

Workbook

Many vessels will need the plant retro-fitting and the choice of an appropriate system will depend, amongst other things, on the type of vessel and its trading pattern. Shipping companies must ensure that there is a designated officer onboard responsible for ensuring the ballast water management plan is being implemented, that adequate records are being kept, and that those operating the system are properly trained. Any health and safety issues relating to the management system should also be addressed. Compliance with the convention will be monitored by Port State Control inspectors.

Drugs and Alcohol – A Manager’s Guide Video

The MLC, 2006 as amended includes guidelines on the safety and health education of seafarers, including guidance and training on the effects of drugs and alcohol abuse. This new training package, aimed directly at management ashore and onboard, has been produced in support of KVH Videotel’s existing training on the subject of drugs and alcohol abuse. Whilst these training packages are aimed at seafarers who need to be made aware of the health, safety and legal issues concerning the use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol, managers, too, need to be made aware of their responsibilities and encouraged to put in place an effective drugs and alcohol policy. The training package examines the key components of such a policy, starting with prevention. Here, companies are encouraged to spread awareness of the risks to health and safety from both drugs and alcohol abuse and to offer help and counselling to those who may be concerned about their drinking or their use of drugs. It highlights the importance of controlling alcohol consumption onboard and making clear that the use of illegal drugs will not be tolerated. Monitoring and testing is an essential part of the policy.

Fire Party Operations Video

Within the confines of a ship a fire can quickly get out of control. Seafarers who fight fires need thorough training and periodic retraining. This demonstrates the appropriate fire fighting operations onboard ship. The activities of the fire party during a simulated emergency are shown. The emergency demonstrates the organisation of entry teams and illustrates many of the procedures required in fighting a fire at sea.

The exercise shows the first entry team, consisting of three men who search the smoke filled incident area until they find a casualty whom they recover. The second entry team completes the search of the area, finds the seat of the fire and then extinguishes it. The emphasis throughout is on practical fire fighting techniques. Good training and good judgement can make an effective fire fighter.

Immersion Suits – The Difference Between Life and Death Immersion in cold water gives the body a shock and rapid breathing is an automatic and uncontrollable response. This only lasts a minute or two, but if the head is not held above the water (for example by a lifejacket), water may be breathed in, resulting in drowning. If the shock of the cold is survived, the next stage is the cooling of the muscles in the limbs, which comes on during the first 30 minutes in the water and hypothermia can set in within 30 minutes.

Life at sea can sometimes be long and hard. To perform well during shipboard duties, to do the everyday tasks, it is essential, if not regulatory, to have a standard of medical fitness. It is essential, as stated in STCW, that all seafarers should ‘meet the standards of medical fitness’. Many of us don’t value our health until it’s all too late. And yet we can help to prevent poor health by taking simple steps towards good health.

Running Time: 22 mins

Several key functions of the human body are covered in this package: how important relaxation and proper rest is in order for seafarers to function effectively; good hearing; keeping teeth and gums healthy; over exposure to the sun and the use of harmful liquids; maintaining a healthy heart; smoking; common and recurring back pain; drinking excessively; STDs; regular exercise. Good health is our best investment. It’s worth making the effort to eat healthier foods, and to get some form of exercise daily. This video aims to illustrate to seafarers exactly how they can maintain their health and a good standard of fitness by adopting an easy daily routine which is simple, practical and highly beneficial.

When the degree of hearing loss reaches the point where a hearing aid is required, the seafarer may no longer be able to work onboard ship, except perhaps in the galley. Hand/Arm vibration Syndrome and Whole Body Vibration Syndrome can be extremely painful and cause long lasting distress.

Operating Carbon Dioxide Fire Fighting Systems Video

For more info: sales@videotel.com

66

Many ships are fitted with fixed carbon dioxide (CO2) systems to flood spaces to extinguish major fires. For safety reasons these systems cannot be used in drills. Therefore, seafarers never become familiar with them. On the rare occasions when they are needed, they are consequently often used incorrectly or their use is delayed. The result can be both danger to personnel and damage to the ship. This training package includes a reconstruction of a real incident. It emphasises that officers need to learn about the fixed carbon dioxide system onboard their ship before they need to operate it in an emergency. It discusses when the system should be used and explains that correct operating procedure must always be followed. It demonstrates the sequence of events in operating a system, how this should be done, and the checks that must be carried out immediately afterwards. The importance of proper maintenance and the precautions that must be taken during maintenance are discussed.

Operations and Personal Safety in Dry Dock and Repair Yards This training package sets out to describe and illustrate how different the comfortable familiarity of onboard life becomes when a ship enters a drydock or repair yard. There, parts of the ship may disappear, a hundred or more people may invade her. Tools, materials, cables, pipes and unfamiliar installations may litter the deck and the normally free access routes. Most important of all, in a shipyard, safe working practices are governed not by the ship’s familiar safety systems but by those of the shipyard. To this end, co-ordination of all work practices, and all safety issues are controlled by a joint safety committee.

Safe Hot Work Procedures Video

Hot work onboard ship has been the cause of various disastrous yet avoidable accidents. Hot work is dangerous and must be controlled. This training package explains that the recommended means of control for hot work is the Permit to Work System. The Hot Work Permit is designed to eliminate or at least reduce the risk of injury or damage onboard ship. It is issued only after a thorough risk assessment and only in conditions where hot work is unavoidable.

Workbook

CBT

Regulations Addressed STCW

The ship’s department heads – the Master, the chief engineer and the first officer – must ensure that the proposed hot work is necessary, cannot be delayed, cannot be substituted and cannot be transported to a machinery space which is suitable for safe hot working. The training package illustrates the meticulous investigation and risk assessment that is conducted by the Master of the vessel before he agrees to issue a hot work permit, including seeking permission from the operators of the vessel. It also shows the preparation work, the isolation of the area where the hot work is going to be performed and gives the legal and safety parameters in force onboard ship.

Safe Isolation of Machinery Video

One of the facts surrounding the operation of powerful machinery onboard ship is that, when it is switched off for repair or maintenance, it must still be controlled by safety measures. A lock out and tag out system has been designed to provide this safety.

Workbook

Regulations Addressed STCW

For more info: sales@videotel.com

The training package explains that there are two tiers to this safety system. A tag out system represents the administrative control, which involves placing a warning tag on the means of machine or power isolation, informing others that the machinery or power system is being worked on. The tag should prohibit the reinstatement of the system by anyone other than the person who placed the tag. The second tier of safety involves the use of a physical locking out of controls, switches and isolators, thereby preventing its reconnection by anyone other than the key holder of the lock out device. Both tiers of this safety system must be recorded in a log-book and cancelled when the work has finished and the lockout device and tag have been removed.

Code: 1187 Working Aloft with Ladders

Running Time: 11 mins

Accidents onboard ship involving ladders feature regularly in P&I claims. On any ship, ladders - both fixed and portable - are being used daily for a multitude of tasks, however, if this simple tool is not used properly, serious injury can result and often these injuries can be fatal. With fixed ladders the two most common reasons seafarers get into trouble are either because the work boots being worn are slippery, or because the person on the ladder is over-reaching. With portable ladders, the main reasons are that the ladder is not properly secured, top and bottom, or that the ladder has been set up on an unsuitable surface.

Code: 1188 Dangerous Edges

Running Time: 8 mins

Dangerous edges are commonplace on ships and the crew have to routinely work close to them. P&I Club surveyors have witnessed ship staff and stevedores walking or working close to the edge of hatch covers and coamings on container ships and bulk carriers without proper safeguards. All injuries resulting from falling or slipping from a dangerous edge can be avoided if proper precautions are taken.

This training package is intended to provide a practical guide on how to proceed if the ship gets into a situation where assistance may be needed – if an engine failure means there’s a risk of grounding, for instance, or in case of fire. In all cases it is the Master who has final responsibility for deciding if assistance from a salvor is necessary. Where the ship is not in imminent danger, however, then time may permit consultation with the owner and an opportunity to seek the most favourable terms for the salvage operation. When danger is imminent then the decisions taken in the first hour or so are critical as things can go from bad to worse very quickly. In cases of this sort, the acceptance of an open form, commonly the Lloyd’s Open Form (LOF), is usually the best option. Target Audience Deck Senior Officers, Deck Junior Officers, Deck Ratings

Working with Multinational Crews – It’s a Cultural Thing!

For more info: sales@videotel.com

88

In sharp contrast to the situation that may have prevailed in the past, ships’ crews these days frequently include seafarers of many different nationalities. This mix of cultures can bring great benefits, but a lack awareness of differing cultural values can have the potential to create difficulty and misunderstandings which can lead to poor teamwork and disharmony. A cohesive crew working well together is perhaps a shipowner’s greatest asset in the drive to avoid against unnecessary loss or damage arising from accidents. The objective of this training package is to improve the prospects of achieving that cohesion in circumstances where the crew diversity may be considerable. It features seafarers from 8 different nationalities who ‘role play’ a range of typical onboard scenarios, starting with language difficulties where basic unfamiliarity can cause confusion leading to dangerous misunderstandings, often made worse because, in some cultures, people don’t always say what they mean.

The Practical Management and Switching of Marine Fuels In the highly competitive world of cargo carrying, ship owners face a number of serious issues. High fuel costs and strict emission controls directly influence the way a vessel’s fuel systems and engines are operated and managed. Having a thorough understanding of the challenges presented by using heavy marine fuel oil and switching to low sulphur fuel when operating in emission control areas (ECAs), is essential to avoid serious operational problems that at best, impair the ship’s performance, or at worst, damage the engines. Additionally, since 2010, many of the busiest shipping areas of the northern hemisphere are now designated as ECAs requiring a switch from high sulphur to low sulphur fuel, a process that requires very careful management. This training package is designed to provide a practical guide to what is required of officers and engineers to process fuel oil from the bunker to the engine, monitoring every stage of filtering and purification to ensure the most efficient combustion is achieved, cleanly and economically.

Search and Rescue: Co-ordination (Edition 2) Video

This training package features reconstructions of events taken from real search and rescue (SAR) incidents. They demonstrate the need for a clear understanding of correct procedures in the event of a disaster at sea, as legislated by the IMO and SOLAS. The package shows the correct SAR procedures to aid a successful outcome. It follows events from sending the initial distress call via the ship’s global maritime distress and safety system (GMDSS), to the eventual arrival of the rescue services. It shows how keeping to the codes of practice and the co-ordination of the various agencies can all contribute to a favourable result. For more info: sales@videotel.com

124

Explaining how to communicate with rescue centres, the package shows how the ship can provide assistance to the maritime rescue co-ordination centres (MRCC) during a distress situation, and that can be done by other ships responding to the distress call. Using computerised graphics, it shows the ocean areas covered by the GMDSS and the use of different radio frequencies and satellite systems via digital selective calling (DSC). It also shows how an emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB) helped to search for and save the lives of crew members after their ship sank in difficult weather conditions.

The helideck on offshore installations is a safety critical area and it must always be fit for use. To ensure that the relevant criteria are met, an inspection regime for helidecks in the UK sector has been established by the Health and Safety Executive. The condition of every deck served by British helicopters is now inspected on a regular basis to ensure its fitness for TCAP 437 and covers how the functioning of the deck must be assessed. It must cope also with dynamic and lateral loading and an emergency impact at high rates of descent, so the primary structure must be checked for corrosion. Secondary structures, hand rails, stairways and so on must also be examined. Normally Unattended Installations (NUIs), have one problem which overrides all others: guano. Where guano persists, good housekeeping is critical. Target Audience Deck Senior Officers, Deck Junior Officers, Deck Ratings

Working with cargo onboard offshore supply vessels has its own hazards. These may arise from the types of cargo being handled or from the extremes of weather often found around offshore installations. Knowledge about good cargo handling makes a significant contribution to that safety. This package will aid the understanding of the problems experienced by all the people involved in moving cargo between installation and vessel and is aimed at personnel all along the supply chain. It deals with the preparation and safe packing of cargo, both on shore and offshore. The timely distribution of all relevant information to all concerned about the nature of the cargo to be handled, especially to the Master of the vessel, is important. It discusses the preparation of a proper stowage plan, taking a count of the physical limitations of the vessel and of the cranes available for moving the cargo as well as the overall numbers, sizes, weights and shapes of cargo.

Social Media at Sea – Want to be Famous? Video

Workbook

In a world of increasingly powerful smart phones and social media sites, seafarers can capture news and events in picture and video form and, in turn, become their own broadcasters. This revolution is not without its downside; the thoughtless snap of a picture or video capture can often make the difference between incidents that attract little to no attention and those that end up making the headlines, in some cases resulting in serious damage to a company’s reputation. In this training package, we meet a seafarer who, as part of his birthday celebrations onboard, created a fun video to share with his family and friends back home. But he had been careless when setting up his social media site, omitting to establish privacy settings, completely unaware of just how far and how quickly his video might travel and, more importantly, what other people such as newspaper reporters might do with it. As the story unfolds, there are lessons for all seafarers who might be contemplating doing the same thing!

Training, Mentoring and Assessment Onboard (Edition 2) This package provides a comprehensive list of the revised competencies now required for certification as deck officers, engineer officers and the qualifications required for ratings. An essential component of the training and assessment process is the training record book issued to every cadet, as well as every candidate who wishes to train as an able seafarer. The training record book serves as a comprehensive checklist for the trainee as well as for the designated shipboard training officer (DSTO), but most importantly it is a proof of achievement for the respective national administration that eventually issues the certificates. It is increasingly recognised that mentoring by experienced seafarers is an important part of training onboard ship. The training package describes the main components of effective mentoring and the requirements for becoming a good mentor. Serving seafarers, whether officers or ratings, require further training to attain certification at a higher rank. These requirements are normally designed by shipping companies for their employees. The employees will undergo a company specific or ship specific assessment programme before they can be employed at their newly certificated ranks.

ColRegs and IALA Buoyage Training Course Overview This course is in two parts and examines in great detail two essential topics for deck officers and crew. The first part deals with the Collision Regulations. Although knowing these regulations is well established as an essential for all watch keeping officers, experience and investigation of incidents indicates that the understanding and adherence to these rules is not as universal as would be expected. This course addresses this issue. The second part of the course deals with the IALA buoyage system; being able to recognise every buoy and knowing what each means is essential for all watch keeping officers. Each type of buoy, their top marks and lights are described and their meanings illustrated graphically. The course deals with the lateral buoyage systems in regions A and B. It goes on to describe the cardinal marks, isolated danger marks, safe water marks, special marks and the emergency wreck marking buoy. Both parts of the course end with a test. As this knowledge is so fundamental to deck watch keeping, a high pass mark is required.

Enclosed Space Entry and Emergency Awareness Training Course Overview This course highlights all the many dangers facing seafarers. The atmosphere in the holds, bilges, bulkheads, cofferdams and other enclosed spaces of ships present some of the most potentially deadly risks. It is a sad truth that proportionally more seafarers die in accidents in enclosed spaces than in any other accidents at sea, but in spite of this, many shipping companies continue to overlook these dangers. The lack of awareness, training and rescue drills means that safe ways of working in enclosed spaces are all too often ignored or poorly implemented.

This course directly concerns itself with the way the ship operates. It concentrates on four areas of competence, knowledge, understanding and proficiency, seeking to develop best practice through a technique called situational awareness, which has now been adopted by the STCW code as a key measure.

Regulations Addressed STCW Section A-VIII/2
