CHIRP Video: Poor Communication and Safe Berthing

By The Maritime Executive 2016-08-22 22:57:02

The latest issue of U.K. charitable trust CHIRP’s Maritime Broadcast discusses a superyacht with a fouled anchor, power loss and poor communication on a car carrier and the issue of mooring snapback zones.

The Confidential Hazardous Incident Reporting Programme (CHIRP) aims to seek out root causes for near misses, without blame, identify the lessons learned and to consider how best this information can be used to prevent reoccurrence elsewhere in the maritime industry.
