New tools for safety compliance
Ocean Time Marine has added to its suite of safety management tools
Australia’s Ocean Time Marine has added a new vessel content management system - the Ocean Time Marine Dashboard - and a suite of paperless safety document packs to its suite of safety management tools.
These tools provide simplified administration for vessel management, delivering greater support and cost-savings for captains and crew on board and ashore.
In response to the marine industry’s need for an easier way to store and manage vessel documentation, Ocean Time Marine developed the Dashboard.
“The Dashboard provides a simple mechanism for vessel operators to monitor their safety documents and access documents all in the one place. Captain’s using the Dashboard are mostly impressed with the MLC hours of rest recording feature where they are able to record all the crew’s monthly hours of rest on one page”, said Jonathan Pike, lead product developer at Ocean Time Marine.
The digital safety document packs further simplify management of documentation by allowing vessel operators to monitor whether documentation is being completed in real-time and respond quickly.
The safety document packs are available in four specific vessel collections: fishing trawlers; vessels up to 8m; superyachts; and passenger vessels.
“One of the benefits of the packs is that once a document is filled out, you can save it to the Dashboard or email it to your office so you’ll never have to deal with forms being damaged, lost or forgotten again”, said Mr Pike.
By providing easier access to documents and records, the new Dashboard and digital safety document packs not only provide greater efficiencies but are another way to enhance the safety culture amongst vessel crew, the company says.
