Continual improvement aspects

As part of ISM code, objectives to continually improve safety management skills ashore and on-board via analysis of nonconformities, accidents and hazardous situations need to be achieved. Procedures for maintenance of the ships in the fleet are required. Use of risk assessment techniques is necessary.

  • For ISO 14001, the company should establish an environmental management programme that addresses all of its objectives and targets including schedules, resources and responsibility for achieving them. The environmental programme helps the company improve its environmental performance and meet its commitment to continual improvement.
  • For ISO 50001, the company is required to plan its energy use when working to achieve its energy targets. This means to develop and carry out an energy review and establish energy baselines. The company is required to use performance indicators. Checking and monitoring is done against the indicators (MariEMS 2017).
