Sire 2.0 update

The profitability of an independent oil tanker owner’s operation is dependent upon being accepted by SIRE subscribers, such as major oil companies, oil and energy traders, as charterers. The decision to hire a third-party tanker depends largely upon a ship’s good SIRE reports.
There are big changes coming to SIRE later in Q4 this year with the launch of the SIRE 2.0 inspection regime. We’ve subsequently updated our modules with the new version in mind to ensure your crew are well repaired. We’re also working on additional modules that build awareness and understanding of all important Human Factors

#0436 SIRE 2.0 Preparing for inspection. Learn more.
#0437 SIRE 2.0, Pre-inspection and documentation. Learn more.
#0438 SIRE 2.0, The ship inspection. Learn more.
#0439 SIRE 2.0, The closing meeting. Learn more.

We have also added a new title to our Ocean shop.

#0819 Diversity and Inclusion at Sea

Everybody has the right to work in a respectful work place. Seafarers come from a wide range of cultures, nationalities and beliefs, and also represent the full spectrum of gender and sexual orientation. This diverse environment makes the industry an interesting place to work, however lack of awareness and unconscious bias can lead to tension, anxiety and conflict at times.

This eLearning title aims to improve awareness of diversity at sea, build understanding of the people you work with and help create an inclusive, respectful and safe workplace for everyone.

The course includes the following components.

  • Module 1 – Introduction
  • Module 2 – Culture
  • Module 3 – Faith and Beliefs
  • Module 4 – Gender and Orientation
  • Module 5 – Other Traits
  • Module 6 – Conflict Management
