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
