Scott Baker, Head of Marine Standards Europe, Svitzer says...
“Nippin’s session reinforced a new approach that my team had embarked on; that of looking at what the company could have done to help prevent situations arising, rather than the more traditional system-based error detection doctrine. A powerful, thought-provoking session and one that we intend to follow up with Nippin in the future."
