The author of; Navigare necesse est? What happened to "Berge Istra", "Rocknes" and "Bourbon Dolphin"? and The ISM code In practice, Arne Sagen is multi-educated, and has worked with maritime safety, inspection and investigation in a lifetime both nationally and internationally, has now published the second edition of "Safety and Health at Sea"
The manual contains, among other things. referrals, procedures, and guidance to be able to implement and maintain high levels of safety, health and hygiene with the human factor in centre to prevent accidents and build a good safety culture on board.
Description of responsibilities and training according to the regulations make this reference work a "must" for senior personnel and safety representatives.
For the undersigned, who has had the honour of cooperating with Arne in several cases over the years, the connection between ISM and STCW, a forgotten chapter by most authorities and shipping companies, is unfortunately particularly interesting.
ISM 6.2.2 in force from 1 January 2015 leaves no doubt about responsibility or the overall security process, both on the current and not least the manning of the future, where it is internationally recognized that human is above technology!
The manual can be warmly recommended as a good aid in the ISM / HSE work that MUST take place on any ship - to ensure that everyone who has their work on board comes home as healthy as when they left their family!
The book can be ordered from Witherbys.
