One of the world's leading paint and coating suppliers, Jotun, has co-operated with Seagull Maritime AS, to develop an informative set of e-learning modules on the theme of onboard paint maintenance, with emphasis on in-service treatments.
OCIMF (Oil Companies International Marine Forum) has recently released their new Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) that takes effect on 17th of September 2018. With a complete section on maritime security devoted to Cyber Security, this is the first major revision of OCIMF’s VIQ since 2013.
From a new trainee to the Master, all crewmembers on board a vessel must be trained and ready to deliver effective first aid in the event of a medical emergency. Whether treatment is given to counteract shock, relieve pain or prevent further injury or death, it is often essential that first aid is given quickly to preserve life, prevent worsening or promote recovery. In some cases, such as severe bleeding or asphyxiation, a few seconds’ delay might mean the difference between life and death.
One of the challenges that navigating officers’ face is a large number of ECDIS systems found on vessels, all with different user interfaces. However, on boarding vessels officers need to be able to competently use the ECDIS, as it could be their main source of navigation. In order to assist the shipping industry, Seagull has partnered with ECDIS developers to create cost-effective ECDIS type-specific training for several of the widely used models.
Marlink and Seagull Maritime have entered into a partnership to introduce a step-change in onboard training this year, creating an online, satcom enabled environment for the distribution and updating of e-learning material. The partnership combines Marlink and Seagull’s respective domain expertise to streamline and automate e-learning content distribution and management. Additional functionality will be offered later this year to enable fully digitalised services with the Seagull software running on Marlink’s XChange centralised IT and communications management platform, providing full on-board hosting, and monitoring of Seagulls market leading software to improve crews’ knowledge and qualification.
Do you know how to perform CPR? Let’s have a little refresher on this important life-saving procedure….
All seafarers must be trained to deliver effective first aid to a casualty. Accidents and medical emergencies can happen at any time, on land or at sea, but seafarers do not have the luxury of being able to call an ambulance for help. In the case of a cardiac arrest, prompt treatment is essential if the casualty is to survive. In this Bulletin, we’ll remind ourselves how to perform CPR so that we will be ready to act if the time comes.
Onboard Danish flagged vessels members of the safety group are required to undergo training concerning the working environment approved by the Danish Maritime Authority. This is also called “Section 16 course”. Immediately after the election of a safety representative and appointment of a supervisor, the ship owner shall enrol them for the Section 16 course. The objective of this course is to give seafarer’s necessary training and knowledge required to carry out their duties as a member of the safety organization in cooperation with others to promote a safe and healthy working environment on board ships.
Seagull Maritime continues to update the Seagull Training App. The newly enhanced Seagull Training App is now complete with the possibility to run e-learning modules and learning films directly from the main menu. The App can be used across a range of mobile device including tablets, in both Android and iOS formats, with dynamic screen layouts for all sizes.
Produced by DNV GL, the Cyber Security Awareness training is set out to help seafarers identify and respond to cyber threats.
Safety Culture is critical for safe and efficient operation of a vessel. International Chamber of Shipping and Seagull Maritime are using the definition where three key components to developing an effective safety culture is in place;
