Competence beyond compliance
DNV's objective is to safeguard life, property and the environment. To fulfil this objective a focus beyond vessel condition and organisational management systems is required.
Many marine incidents and accidents are related to human errors and should be the starting point for proactive competence management activities. Addressing competence means protecting assets, securing future cost reductions and gaining competitive advantage.
DNV SeaSkill™ does not perform training, but assists shipping companies, manufacturers and training providers to assure that competence is properly addressed, built and retained.
