This three-day training offers both seagoing and shore personnel an in-depth understanding of oil company chartering, TMSA3 performance analysis, risk management, vetting processes and physical inspections. In conjunction with TMSA3, the OCIMF Ship Inspection Report (SIRE) Programme is used as a basis to understand the expectations of charterers and SIRE results analysed to identify, measure and minimise risks.

Newly added to this course, is a module dedicated to the specific performance measurement and comparatives expectations set out in TMSA3, and in particular, those in Element 12. Processes to demonstrate how Operators can identify/reduce risk and drive continuous improvement across the fleet and to most effectively demonstrate performance to charterers.

Supporting the performance measurement and analysis required by TMSA3, use of SIRE data to analyse Observations and quantify associated risks is demonstrated. Self-inspections by Masters/Superintendents to deliver timely corrective actions are discussed and compared with SIRE inspection results to identify/measure risks associated with fleet, vessel and personnel performance.

The course combines lectures with practical exercises to raise awareness of issues that are critical to oil companies and the inspectors who undertake SIRE inspections. A virtual “walk-around” of a tanker looks at many issues of concern and encourages attendees to think like an inspector. Action plans to assign responsibility and efficiently rectify shortcomings revealed in inspection reports are also addressed.
