Prevention at Sea to host INTERCARGO-supported webinar on H.EL.M.E.T.
Prevention at Sea to host INTERCARGO-supported webinar on ‘H.EL.M.E.T. - Human ELement Maritime Enhancement Tool: a human-centered risk assessment targeting compliance and a safe business culture in the dry sector’
In the upcoming ‘H.EL.M.E.T. - Human ELement Maritime Enhancement Tool Webinar’ representatives from INTERCARGO, Prevention at Sea, Maran Dry Management and the European University of Cyprus will voice their views on shipping industry safety approaches and discuss the importance of the human element. Plans and progressions for the H.EL.M.E.T. tool and its methodology in 2021 will also be presented.
As the industry evolves, stakeholders are recognising the need to recentre around the human element and increase proactivity in nurturing a safe business culture. To enhance the human element, safety in the shipping industry needs to move away from the current ‘tick box’ culture, with greater emphasis placed on a proactive approach which puts people at the centre.
With the aim of detecting inefficient operational practices at an early stage before they can escalate into major incidents, the Human ELement Maritime Enhancement Tool (H.EL.M.E.T.) developed by Prevention at Sea represents a simple, practical, and effective methodology for risk assessment that can prevent safety incidents before they occur.
H.EL.M.E.T. is a continuous compliance program and represents a simple, practical, and effective methodology for risk assessment. It incorporates the development and conduction of assessments aiming towards the combined evaluation of the condition and the identification of potential human-born failures targeting optimisation of the human element in the maritime industry.
The use of this tool is supported by the H.EL.M.E.T. Committee, a group of well-respected industry stakeholders, who hold the joint ambition to ultimately re-establish a genuine, industry-wide commitment to a ‘safe business culture’.
