Improving Performance Through the Human Element Course

Introduction


The Nautical Institute (NI) Improving Performance Through the Human Element course is an interactive, two-day course that has been designed to provide mariners with an in-depth overview of the most important physical and psychological aspects of the human, and the interaction of that human in a very specific environment – a vessel at sea. And further, to provide mariners (and their managers) with a comprehensive introduction into the realities of human limitations and the implication for delivering consistent, safe and efficient overall performance. 

Mariners that understand both the abilities, and limitations of the human body and mind, are better able to promote improved performance – both in themselves, as well in their colleagues at sea. And positive improved performance is closely linked to improved safety culture on board – the ultimate aim in any safety program.

The course builds on the information outlined in The Nautical Institute’s book Human Performance and Limitation for Mariners by delivering this safety-critical information in a direct, instructor-led workshop, using a number of media to deliver this message (accident case studies from CHIRP and MARS reports, material from the Alert! series, videos, exercises, etc.). Active delegate involvement and participation is strongly promoted throughout the two days. We will also provide delegates with references to best-practice guidelines from other high-risk industries (especially rail and aviation).

Course aims:

To provide mariners with an in-depth overview of the most important physical and psychological aspects of the human, and the interaction of that human in a very specific environment – a vessel at sea.

To provide mariners (and their managers) with a comprehensive introduction into the realities of human limitations and the implication for delivering consistent, safe and efficient overall performance.
