Working together in a perfect storm, 22 September


Working together in a perfect storm, 22 September

We are excited to announce that Young IRO in close collaboration with the STC-KNRM Offshore Safety training provider established to organize a life event. After months of social isolation and working from home we are now (let’s hope) heading to the end of the storm and that’s why we from Young IRO see an opportunity to organize the first live event of this year, of course within safe boundaries!

This event will take place at the training institute of STC-KNRM in the harbour of Rotterdam. Where action and knowledge will be combined to make sure that you are ready to face the end of this storm together! Twan van Tilburg is invited as guest and will prepare a workshop in line with the topic; ‘Welfare, a pre-condition for working together’.

After this, we will take a dive in the indoor training pool, where an introduction training will be given by STC KNRM instructors in regard to ‘Surviving at sea’.

Workshop ‘Welfare, a pre-condition for working together’
The philosophy of managing welfare or well-being is a condition for safety to manage what goes well. Not a bad thought if you realize that in 98% of the cases, the systems just work and in 2% of the cases they do not. Therefore, it seems more effective to focus on the things that are going well! But how can you manage what is going well in this dynamic maritime & offshore world we work in?

Training ‘Survival at sea’
After an instruction, participants can enter the training pool to learn survival techniques at sea in which the group needs to work together. Of course this will be on a voluntarily base, where we do encourage everybody to try to actively participate. In the indoor swimming pool several weather conditions can be simulated such as waves, wind, rain and lightning. A realistic experience in a controlled environment!

We will end the event with food and drinks to talk about our experiences and more.

Bear in mind, spots are limited and reserved for Young IRO members only. Registration is now open so don’t miss out and go to:
