INTERTANKO speaks at the Maritime Risk Management Conference in London

A presentation entitled "Continuously enhancing the skill base of crew on board" was given by Minerva Alfonso, Secretary to INTERTANKO's IT Committee, at the Maritime Risk Management Conference held in London last week. 


Her paper focused on the benefits of onboard computer-based training (CBT).  She gave a background on the tanker fleet performance over the last 30 years and discussed a recent industry-initiated incident analysis and the conclusions and recommendations derived from this analysis, as well as its strong correlation to several aspects of the Human Element in Shipping and training.  Finally, she highlighted some of the Association’s initiatives on the issue.  A copy of Ms. Alfonso’s presentation can be viewed here.
