Description: Groundings and collisions with both fixed or floating objects (FFO) are the most high profile and costly of all maritime accidents. Usually human error remains the most common factor of such accidents. Even if vessel’s navigational systems and procedures are designed to reduce the risk, it is precisely the failure of these procedures that lead to incidents. North is a marine insurer company focused on safety culture and loss prevention, that also provides technical and operational expertise. This guide is designed to bring to the attention of masters and officers the key factors in groundings and FFO incidents, rather than be a textbook on voyage planning and the avoidance of groundings or FFO incidents. It includes suggestions on avoiding the contributory factors and aims to promote an understanding of how the risks can be minimised through following good practice. Real-life case studies are included at the end of most chapters to provide examples of poor practice, considering that is much less costly to learn from the mistakes of others than to learn from our own mistakes. The case studies and the questions they ask are designed to be the starting point for wide-ranging discussions on all aspects of avoiding groundings and FFO incidents. Each case study describes a developing situation and asks a number of questions, without providing the answers. The intention is to encourage the discussion between members of the bridge team.
