SCREENING SAFETY NEWS ´´LACK OF BRM BEHIND SHIP'S HEAVY CONTACT WITH QUAY AND CRANES" In a recent report released by the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB), lack of BRM is identified as a major cause behind the container ship CMA CGM Centaurus' contact with quay and shore cranes in the Port of Jebel Ali, UAE. The accident caused massive damage and 10 injuries to shore personnel. MAIB says: "There was no agreed plan for the intended manoeuvre, and therefore no shared mental model between the bridge team and the pilot. Consequently, the pilot was operating in isolation without the support of the bridge team, allowing the pilot’s decision-making to become a single system point of failure." " Despite extensive industry guidance, there continues to be a reluctance by masters and pilots to work together in accordance with the principles of BRM", according to MAIB. RESPONSE TO MRM NEWS ( ALL Ac. 2018-december.12) At first step signing that the term referred in MAIB report is BRM not MRM. At the second one, to say that in addition to MAIB referrals reports ( reluctances to apply the BRM principles ) is necessary to add other reasons because the BRM principles and procedures don´t usually are applied; because: 1. The formation are not courses (contents) than changing and learning process (objectives); are not modules themes ( theoric and traditional model ) than training objectives and competencies targets, ( practical competencial model ); the electric light not result from summing candell´s light (emergency property); and talking about the time is not time control train/learning 2. The aim of BRM training is a human factors competencies, not only principles concepts or attitudes formation; It´s say: procedures, behaves, abilities, skills, habitues...…. all integrated in technical competences. 3. The competence is a table of 3 foots: to know, to know how and will; its say, knowledge, abilities- skills , and attitudes; only one absence it´s enough for it to fall. The human factors and resources competences requires practice training, not theoric explanations. ( The 12 greats error of MRM). 4. So the question is the training methodology we use and the mental model we applying for enhancing those competencies. That´s because Human factors and resources management training requires at least the same instructor´s competencies that he trying to train others; because we can not selling that we haven´t, neither teaching that we uknowledge. 5. So the BRM aim is trapping, managing and don´t disseminating any kind of errors (unnoticed and hazardous errors) and advising them anytime and wherever these happen (overall our shared an errors or scams); all of wich requires knowledge, abilities, skills, attitudes, experience, even more valor and values; because technique without ethic don´t bringing benefits. 6. It´s a evidence that human elements /factors, (some human factors) are behind most of maritime incidents, accidents or catastrophes, but this is a unfortunate affirmation because human error as a cause informs nothing ( any problem with man- made systems is ultimately a human error), and only show a generics and unspecific sentence that ever are fulfills (self- fulling prophecy or Pigmalión effect ); It´s like to say that behind the death are ever human health causes ( private clinics causes). 7. The question Is not pointing out these evidence than knowing what kind, which level and miscellaneous interfaces root causes operates, physical, technical, ……, medical, psychological, mental...... organizational and cultural causes including; but overall how to manage and preventing them with the technique – scientific methodologies ( the safety management should be a science not a religion; epistemology, not doxa). 8. So, identifying lack of MRM ( ¿maritime resources management or human resources management?) behind accidents or navigational claims, It´s a great judgment´s error ( ad hominem & ad verecundiam inference fallacy)*. The real sentence it would be:“…. Lack of human resources competences and cultural and organizational factors are behind most of the maritime accidents (air, health,…) or navigational claims”. 9. These kind of errors/mistakes ( ad hominem fallacy) are any of bigger hidden hazardous thoughts that BRM training have to trapp and correct for accident prevention and maritime safety. 10. All these caused by false and shared believes* that attitude is enough for BRM competences acquiring and anybody can teaching or training it; bringing the illusory perception and delusory believes of unreal competence for your easier acceptance (placebo effect) and rapid product diffusion (nocebo effect) Error is ever simptome of a deeper trouble (Sidney Decker); and the biggest error is the shared error because it gives a certainty feeling (scam); because people prefer the certainty of error than uncertainty of true ( pos-true) CONCLUSION: All these show that the traditional MRM courses are not real competencies training than complacency formation ( placebo effect ); with some of worst effects (nocebo effect). But the maritime safety not admit these kind of errors/mistakes; because like other malware it go unnoticed (hidden agenda ), afgecting or blocking the rest of system (error chain); that it needs special attention, & caution, specialized analysis and professional challenge. Because one error is enough for every fails, all effort isn´t enough for maritime safety and accidents prevention (The vital few).. That´s our best professional engagement, cultural reliability, and social responsibility ( CSR) for higher maritime safety mission. All sayd for safety´s cause from any cause knowledge on the field. Time will brings to light all is hidden, and covers everything that with splendor now shines (Quinto Horacio Flaco). luck for everyone JCGA
