Life afloat can be challenging – but experience tells us that the biggest single cause of accidents at sea is not the absence of safety policies and procedures, but the lack of safety awareness among seafarers. Fleet Management’s award-winning SafeR+ program – launched in 2010 and reinvigorated in 2012, 2014 and 2019 – addresses this concern by helping seafarers internalize the importance of Communication, Teamwork and Risk Assessment – encouraging every seafarer to take personal accountability for doing things more safely. The program has helped reduce crew injuries by 70% – substantially above its initial target of 50% – while increasing near miss reports by 550%.
