Whale Strike Webinar
Seafarers take great joy from sharing the oceans with marine life. Despite our best efforts, strikes on marine mammals such as whales and dolphins continue – but there are ways to prevent them.

The Nautical Institute's MARS Lessons Learned takes reports from investigative services – and readers – worldwide and condenses them into a quick read with some lessons learned, rather like our Watch Out! page. They're a great basis for safety meetings or further discussion. Find them at https://www.nautinst.org/technical-resources/mars.html
P&I Clubs often have great risk management resources written specifically with seafarers in mind – it's in their interest to keep ships safe, after all! Some of them may be in paper on the bridge, but it's worth looking to see what's online, too.
If you learn better by listening, https://maritimesafetyinnovationlab.org/recommended-podcasts/ has a list of recommended podcasts that cover all kinds of topics – you're sure to find something interesting there.
While we focus mainly on navigating the ship (the clue's in the name!) one of the riskiest parts of the voyage can be getting in and out of the berth. The IHMA's 'Missing Link' videos have some great advice on mooring. Find them at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uk_pLrX5Ye4
