First CHIRP Report Out

We have received this week, courtesy of Captain Michael Powell (CHIRP Marine Director), the first report of feedback from the new Confidential Hazardous Incident Reporting Programme (CHIRP) launched earlier this year to collect maritime reports of trouble and near-misses which can be used to provide lessons for others and also to help the companies and ships concerned to act on the anonymous tips by their employees.

INTERTANKO sits on the CHIRP Advisory board and thus strongly supports the this reporting programme to enhance safety at sea.
