As a step toward improving quality and safety systems and easing work for its crew, the German tanker company Chemikalien Seetransport has implemented DNV GL’s ShipManager QHSE software across its entire tanker fleet of 40 vessels.
The ShipManager QHSE ship safety management system supports findings and incident reporting, documentation, certificate control, safety task management and direct link into the class survey items and certificates. The software also helps to reduce the administrative burden of relevant shipping industry regulations, such as ISM/ISPS, SOLAS, TMSA, classification rules, vetting inspections, or Port State Control.
“We wanted to achieve two things,” says Frank Eggert, project manager for the Chemikalien Seetransport implementation. “We wanted to further develop our quality and safety system, and also to ease the work for crew and onboard staff.”
The ShipManager QHSE is a user-friendly tool known for its capabilities of rapid implementation. The system implemented in the Chemikalien Seetransport fleet also includes DNV GL’s ShipManager Analyzer software, for efficient fleet management reports of safety KPIs and statistics.
“ShipManager QHSE has modules such as Safety Management Reporting, Documentation, Safety Tasks & Drills and Certificates modules. Chemikalien Seetransport will have a framework for reporting, assessing and following up any incidents, audits and findings. They are also able to manage one complete database with documentation such as safety management manuals and technical documentation, accessed both centrally and on the vessels,” says Dr Torsten Büssow, DNV GL’s head of Maritime Software.
He adds: “We are very proud that we could prove with prior good work to Chemikalien Seetransport that we are the right partner for ship management solutions.”
