BRIDGE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CAN PREVENT HUMAN ERRORS

The US National Transportation Safety Board has followed the development of bridge resource management as an alternative to traditional bridge management methods for many years. Bridge resource management is defined as effectively using all available resources to achieve safe operation. Bridge resource management has demonstrated many ways in which it can prevent marine casualties for commercial and public vessels. Specifically, when investigative analyses of accidents identify officers' deliberate or inadvertent oversights of available information, failures to use available navigation bridge equipment or inadequate use of personnel, there is a good possibility that management and the use of bridge resources could be improved.
