Situational Awareness with Stephen Polk, Dan Price, and Casey Stubbs

Loss of situational awareness has been cited as the cause of numerous accidents in the maritime industry and can result from a variety of factors, including fatigue, miscommunication, use of medications or illegal substances, social stress and more. Anything that is a distraction to a crewmember can diminish situational awareness.
 
Recently, AWO hosted a webinar entitled “Situational Awareness: Identify, Process & Understand,” featuring expert insights from Capt. Stephen Polk, Director, Maritime Education & Training, Seamen’s Church Institute; Capt. Dan Price, Operations Manager-Inland, Genesis Marine, LLC; and Casey Stubbs, Director, Safety/Compliance, Golding Barge Line, Inc. The presenters discussed ways to prevent loss of situational awareness as well as the policies, procedures and training their organizations are using to manage risk and preserve situational awareness. The panel also discussed how to determine if loss of situational awareness has occurred and the best ways to regain it.

VIDA Discussions with Jennifer Carpenter, Craig Montesano, and Caitlyn Stewart

On December 4, President Trump signed the Vessel Incidental Discharge Act into law. This milestone achievement is the result of an intensive, years-long advocacy effort led by AWO and its members to reform a broken system of overlapping and conflicting federal and state regulations for ballast water and other vessel discharges. Now that VIDA has been enacted, how will the law change the status quo, and what should AWO members expect as implementation proceeds?
 
This webinar features discussion of these topics and insights from Jennifer Carpenter, AWO's Executive Vice President &COO, Craig Montesano, Vice President – Legislative Affairs and Caitlyn Stewart, Director – Regulatory Affairs.
