A Remote Navigation Audit provides an objective independent check by a trained auditors team that the right procedures are being followed on board. The human element is usually acknowledged to be a serious factor still in many shipping incidents and accidents so this audit reduces the danger of future accidents occurring. The navigational audit will be conducted through an analysis of documentation sent to be the vessel. VDR ANALYSIS is an invaluable and efficient tool to prevent 'NAVIGATIONAL INCIDENTS'. In spite of various advancements in technological tools, the importance of "Situational Awareness" and "Human Elements" in safe ship-board navigation is of paramount importance & remains the focus of various quality control checks through audits and inspections. We conduct a very comprehensive VDR analysis with graphical representation of Critical parameters (depending on data extracted from VDR or SVDR onboard the vessel). It is clear that significant benefits can be derived from post-incident analysis and VDRs can help in improving safety at sea, particularly relating to:
1. Accident investigation
2. Bridge Team Training
3. Promoting best practice and accident prevention
4. Assessment of response to safety and environment emergencies
5. Reduction in insurance losses (Safety at sea, 2001).
Our VDR Analysis audit service supported by comprehensive analytics of VDR data captures the actual performance of the bridge team covering all phases of Navigation and provides detailed information/report of Bridge Team complying with the companies Navigational procedures /practices and focusses on imbibing discipline within the Bridge team.
