Title: SOCP Anti-Piracy Video
DVD, which has been developed to assist seafarers, vessel owners/operators,
maritime unions, underwriters and government agencies in preparing vessel crews
for piracy attacks.
The SOCP Anti-Piracy DVD includes two training
sessions that are complimentary to each other
Onboard Anti-Piracy Measures for
Situation Awareness and Response
The threat and success of pirate attacks on commercial vessels has had a significant impact on the maritime industry and on the lives of seafarers that crew the vessels. Piracy continues to remain a major challenge to maritime nations. It is obvious that the maritime community must do more to end this threat to our sea-lanes and mariners.
Title: Bridge Resource Management
Description: The purpose of this video is to inform sea going personnel of the concept of Bridge Resource Management and to gain an understanding of the human factors involved and to control them. Topics covered include bridge organization and procedures, pilot and bridge team integration, voyage planning, situational awareness and error trapping, communications, stress, fatigue, and leadership and group decision making. Bridge Resource Management is such a crucial part of navigational safety that it is a requirement of the international STCW convention and the International Safety Management (ISM) Code.
Title: Engine Room Resource Management
Description: The concept and practice of Bridge Resource Management is applied to engine room operations in this video, and human factors are the central theme. Topics covered include engineering organization and procedures, team building, situational awareness and error trapping, communications, stress, fatigue, leadership and group decision making, and cultural diversity. The relationship of Engine Room Resource Management to STCW implementation is stressed and it should be an integral element of the mariner's STCW training package.
Title: International Safety Management Code
Description: This video is aimed at ship operators or managers who are early in the process of implementing their International Safety Management (ISM) programs. The ISM Code provides an international standard for the safe management and operations of vessels and for pollution prevention. It also promotes the development of safeguards through the emphasis on human element capabilities and training to harness advances in equipment technology. In addition to describing the required elements of the code, unique lessons learned by companies who have gone through ISM certification are included
Title: Shipboard Security Awareness
Description: This training video is aimed at providing merchant ship crewmembers with an awareness of the possible threats against their vessels and how to recognize when such threats might occur. The video should help instill a high level of security awareness among crewmembers and provide practical real-world advice to crews on the security of their ships.
Title: Shipboard Accident Investigation
Description: An important part of a shipboard Safety Management System (SMS) is an effective accident investigation process. The level of safety has been shown to improve when changes are made as the result of analyses of accidents and near accidents. This video is intended to be used as a training aid to assist accident investigation teams in conducting investigations. It is also intended to make all crewmembers aware of the importance of reporting accidents and near accidents. The video addresses all of the elements of the investigation process, with emphasis on identifying root causes and making recommendations for corrective action.
Title: Enclosed Space Entry
Description: Entry into, or work in confined or enclosed spaces may cause fires, explosions, injury, illness or death. Because of these deadly hazards, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration as well as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, National Fire Protection Association, and the Coast Guard have prepared regulations and guidelines for entry or work in confined and enclosed spaces. The video covers hazards of confined or enclosed spaces, personal protective equipment, testing procedures, ventilating and inerting procedures, hot work and emergency and rescue procedures.
Title: Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program
Description: The 1995 Amendments to the STCW convention require that crew members have knowledge of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.

Since the breadth of materials to be covered is quite large, this material is presented in a two-part video. Part one covers evacuation, life rafts, and personal life saving appliances, emergency electronic equipment, and survival at sea.
Title: Personal Survival Techniques (Pt 2 of 2)
Description: Personal Survival Techniques represent training requirements for both the 1995 Amendments to the STCW convention as well as the Code of Federal Regulations. Since the breadth of materials to be covered is quite large, this material is presented in a two-part video. Part two covers lifeboats, fast rescue boats, and helicopter rescue.
