Navigation Assessments: A Guide to Best Practice, 1st Edition 2016
Many maritime incidents could have been prevented by the use of a navigation assessment, which, through careful observation, evaluates how the navigation of a ship is being conducted. An effective assessment should take place over several days and provide practical feedback to the bridge team as well as guidance to shore-based management.
This handbook provides a step-by-step guide that will enable the assessor to carry out a fair, objective and positive assessment that properly takes into account human element issues. Case studies of maritime accidents and incidents provide valuable learning points to help mariners understand the assessment process.
