NINA Blog: Pleasantly surprised about the NINA effect

“I would venture to say that the safety standard here on board is already high, but NINA has really brought about a change.

Our crew was introduced to NINA last spring. I am very pleased about that: Every week I see improvements being made in how people approach their work. Everyone shares ideas and talks with each other about safety. Our Filipino crew members have also become much more vocal. Where once it was always a one-way conversation during safety meetings, people are now asking questions. The nature of these meetings has completely changed – much more feedback is being given now. To be honest I didn't expect that; I am pleasantly surprised. Now safety is discussed on board each and every day. Everyone thinks: it just can't be done any other way anymore.”
