Nina at Work Number 1 - 2017

REFLECTION ON 6 YEARS OF NINA

TIME FOR A NEW IMPULSE
How do we see NINA now, six years after implementation? In the last six months, SHEQ has listed what the issues are in division D&II: How do our colleagues experience this? What is the management’s view? What do we want to pay more attention to?


WORKING SAFELY WITH INEXPERIENCED RATINGS

Hans Hilverda, superintendent
“In Newfoundland, Canada, the Taklift 6 was involved in the construction of a concrete oil platform. We had to fit large metal decks together and carry out a lot of lifting jobs. It was the local content arrangements that were the main difficulty: half of the crew was replaced by Canadians, without relevant work experience. The dilemma we faced was how we could teach them to do the different jobs safely.


“IN MANY STORIES I HEAR AS TRAINER TRUST IS THE CENTRAL THEME”

Last year all officers and about 70% of the ratings on board the former Dockwise vessels had NINA training. This year the rest will follow. Senior SHE-Q engineer and trainer Svetlana Pritula talks about her experiences.


MY IDEA OF SAFETY? WARNING PEOPLE IF THEY ARE NOT SAFE

“Always remain alert”, says Salvage Master Wytse Huismans on the subject of working safely. He is just back from Liverpool, England, where he worked with a marine chemist and a contractor as a consultant in the operation to put a fire out on a ship. Wooden pallets had caught fire in one of the holds and carbon monoxide had been detected in the neighboring engine room. First operation: save an engineer.
