Bridge teamwork for safe navigation in pilotage waters

Amid persistent concerns about marine safety associated with teamwork on the bridge, the Marine Accident Investigators International Forum (MAIIF) and the International Maritime Pilots’ Association (IMPA) have collaborated to develop a poster for display on bridge decks of ships navigating in pilotage waters across the world.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is partnering with the Canadian Marine Pilots Association to ensure the message is seen aboard Canadian and foreign vessels plying our waters.

While the International Maritime Organization and most Member States have demonstrated due diligence and have implemented mandatory training for ships’ crews and pilots, the number of accidents in which the cause or a finding as to risk is related to the pilot/bridge team relationship continues to be a concern.
