Ships fit for Purpose - People fit for Purpose


DNV GL SeaSkill™

DNV GL's objective is to safeguard life, property and the environment. To fulfil this objective a focus beyond vessel condition and organisational management systems is required.

Many marine incidents and accidents are related to human errors and should be the starting point for proactive competence management activities. Addressing competence means protecting assets, securing future cost reductions and gaining competitive advantage.
