This publication contains 12 aviation incidents that cross-refer to the maritime sector, highlighting important and transferable ‘lessons from the flight deck’. A discussion of these lessons follows each case study, emphasising important teamwork practices such as clear communication, situational awareness and the need for a shared mental model between all members of the bridge team.
The case studies in this publication provide lessons to be learnt from the aviation industry, showing how they mirror maritime incidents and focussing on the key human element modules included within the MCRM training. Each case study makes reference to the MRCM course structure.
The publication is a valuable resource for seafarers of all ranks and for those ashore, as the comparisons demonstrate the relevance of effective teamwork in maintaining safety throughout shipboard operations.
