SUPPORT OF MARITIME EDUCATION AND TRAINING SYSTEMS FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ISM CODE

The issue of safety improvement and pollution prevention in maritime transport has become more and more critical and urgent to solve. In fact, the number of accidents at sea has increased very quickly over time. Concern is increasing about poor safety qualifications and poor management standards in the shipping industry. The International Safety Management (ISM) Code aims to provide international standards for safe management of ship operations and for pollution prevention. This paper, which presents part of the work done by the University of Trieste--ISTIEE within the framework of the METHAR Project, aims to identify the expected support from the Maritime Education and Training (MET) systems to implement the ISM Code, consequently improving safety and preventing pollution. The origin and objectives of the ISM Code, and the standard requirements on MET identified by the Code, are described. The opinions of the operators collected through questionnaires are summarized and possible enrichments of the MET system are identified to better optimize the implementation of the Code.
