DATE: THURSDAY, November 18th, 2021

TIME: 12:15 Atlantic (8:15 Pacific, 11:15 Eastern, 12:45 NFLD)

Investigating an Occurrence on a Vessel

Summary:

At some time in our sea going or shore side careers we are going to encounter a situation where damage is sustained to a Vessel, its equipment or it’s crew.  How do we document and report the findings of the Investigation so that lessons can be learned.

Abstract:

The primary reason for an investigation is to identify the causes(s) of an occurrence so as to initiate action(s) to prevent similar occurrences.

This is achieved by determining what happened, how and why it happened so that modifications can be made to procedures or equipment that will improve the safety of the Vessel operations.

Accurate and thorough reporting of all occurrences is required to enable lessons to be learnt which may prevent future occurrences.

How to document the occurrence, how to interview witnesses, how to prepare a report are all things that we shall look at in this presentation.
