s-T-art accelerating vessel performance today
Let's START to accelorate vessel performance. We've already discussed how we can start to develop a new STRATEGY inside an organisation to improve vessel and human performance by conducting the three R's, and which part of those 3 R's we can use. AIM actionable individual monitoring to utilise data analytics to unlock that power of human performance and revolutionise vessel performance at sea.
However, we can't start to see change unless there's TRAINING involved, whether there's an education program to enlighten true and management as to the effects of human performance, which his why we, as part of the digital maritime business membership, we run regular weekly training sessions that are deployable at the click of a button internationally around the globe, accessible by all those members of the organizations that are taking part in the program. This is where we look at the four P's of performance.
We look at the FOUR P’s of human performance every single week, live and downloadable from wherever you are in the world. We look at how human performance and safety go hand in hand, how when we take into consideration elements of the human body, of how crew behave on a daily basis, that this could in fact jeopardize the vessel. It could affect risk, safety onboard and the future operation. Safety is critical. We don't talk about safety in the tradition of one because quite frankly, all the organizations in maritime understand safety to a degree.
It could affect risk, safety onboard and the future operation. Safety is critical. We don't talk about safety in the tradition of one because quite frankly, all the organizations in maritime understand safety to a degree. This is the relationship that human performance has to the safe operation of the vessel. This is both for management and the teams at sea, the crew around the world.
Then, we lot at why is human performance so important, and what really is it? We look at more physiological elements such as body fat content, what effect that, that has on the human body, on performance, how that affects daily operation, not necessarily on a safety matter but on a general day-to-day. We look at why nutrition is so important in day-to-day life and in human performance and how that can affect the seafarer's future life.
How do we fuel our crew affects human performance. We look at other areas that include sleep, physical activity, endurance, fitness, medical standards and a whole host of topics. Then, we look at how to improve human performance at sea. What we actually need to do to initiate that improvement to perform better every single day begins with small nuggets of information that we can start to incorporate into vessel operation around the world.
Then, on top of that, we provide an element of performance training, how we can actually take physical activity into our own hands and improve that, not only in our own lives but the lives of those around us and what affect then that, that will have onto vessel operation. Now, this is the joy of technology where we conduct these sessions generally live for the teams on shore to participate in, to ask questions, to learn, to ask specific questions beforehand and have them answer during the session, to be interactive.
For those seafarers that are bound to join a vessel for the first time or for the hundredth time, they're able to get an update. For those individuals who are at sea today who can't stream these training videos live, we provide the facility for them to be able to download this at the next quarter call, so they can learn at their own time, in their own pace, so they can pick out areas that are important to them.
During this period of transformation of accelerating performance, we can start to use the technology and data analytics using what we have at our disposal to track vessel performance against human performance and how effective a program such as the maritime business, digital maritime business program is inside your organization, so we can start to show our accountants, our investors the truest return on investment and how human performance is affecting vessel performance on a daily basis. In the next blog, we look at the actions that need to be taken.
