Maritime disasters or casualties at sea are major concern of key players in the maritime industry today. Collisions top the list of maritime disasters. It results in loss of lives, property and in many instances the environment is threatened with oil pollution and long term irreversible damage. Human error, lack of training, experience and improper bridge resource management have been established as significant factors contributing to collisions at sea. To overcome this concern and improve the navigational standards, Bridge Resource Management Training (BRM) was introduced in Europe seven years ago following the model of Cockpit Resource Management Training of the airline industry. Recently, this training has also been introduced in Asia.
