Is systems approach to safety the right approach in the maritime environment?
ISM Code Section 1.2.2.2 requires the Company to identify all risks in the operation of their ships. This is not a one time activity. It requires principles of resilience engineering to fully meet the requirements of Section 1.2.2.2. The sinking of the ill fated US flagged vessel the El Faro in 2015 is a pointer to the urgent need for the industry to make up for this deficiency. It requires certain specific organizational capabilities.

How can we make paradigm shift systems approach to safety in maritime world?
Maritime transportation system is a SOCIOTECHNICAL SYSTEM. Therefore, linear and quantitative risk assessments methods are not adequate. The systems approach to safety using resilience engineering looks promising. The industry leadership ashore needs to conform to high level requirements of the ISM Code "objectives" before being granted a Document of Compliance. The organizational climate aboard is dependent upon capability of shore management to control emergent nature of risks.

Delivering a Ship Panama - Canada
Hello- I recently became a mate, and I am currently working as a 2nd mate on the Great Lakes in Canada. I will be joining a new ship in Panama in October to bring her up to Canada. I have never worked outside of the Great Lakes, so I was wondering what kind of information I should maybe look up/practice before this voyage. (ie. azimuths, or publications, tide tables). Just some things that would be useful to know for this voyage. Thanks! Kelsey
