Title: Poor security practises can lead to costly repercussions.

 

Intro: Bibby Maritime know that a window can most definitely be an opportunity, however some opportunities are not with the purest intentions.

Challenge:  Did you know that according to the IMO statistics report (FAL 43/13) there were 1,420 reported cases of stowaways on board vessels in 2017? Resultant from this was $9.5 million in fines imposed by States to all affected vessel owners, with the average cost per incident being around $22,000. These kind of figures are enough to make anyone wince, especially vessel owners, Captains and crews.

Solution: As mentioned in March's Monthly Obstacle, Bibby Maritime’s business sits somewhere between the shipping industry and the hotel industry. On any given charter, we can have hundreds of people accessing our vessels at one time, therefore for both our crew and clients it is important to consider good safety and security workplace practises. Such thing to consider can include, but are not limited to the following;

Access control – There should only be authorised persons on board our vessels, whether that be crew, client workers and contractors. Upon entry and exit, all persons should be processed through the reception area and given an appropriate ID badge or cabin card key. Any persons that need to be given access to restricted areas should be escorted with a crew member and not left unattended.

Screening and Patrolling –  Various rounds are completed on board our vessels by crew, ensuring that internal and external areas can be checked at any time at random. If either crew or clients should come across any suspicious behaviour or activities from an individual or group, it should be reported to reception or the nearest crew member immediately. Alternatively, be sure to report it to the CSO (Company Security Officer).

Doors and windows – We all know that in some temperate climates a good breeze can be a welcome respite. Sometimes windows and doors are wedged and left open – the security risk in this is obvious, so any time they are going to be left unattended be sure to close them on exit. Furthermore, not all doors are meant to be opened, unless in cases of emergency. These doors should be clearly marked.  For safety and security there are designated entry and exit points on board our vessels. Be sure to be aware of the appropriate entry, exits and emergency exits on board.

 

The team at Bibby Maritime work hard to make sure you sleep easy, vigilance is key. Here’s to what the next month brings.
