Consultancy company: Often simple things that need changes

It is often quite basic things that need to be changed when Mia Verniere from Ponte pays shipping companies a visit. She looks through the companies’ ships and make sure that they live up to standards and certificates. It is often the reporting of near-miss incidents which need improvement, she tells ShippingWatch.

Through her company Ponte, Mia Verniere advises shipping companies when they need a new certificications within security, quality, environment or other areas. In her work, she often experiences that what is needed is small and simple adjustments in order to obtain a higher certification or standard level for a ship. The picture is similar when she controls ships and offices. It is often concentrated around near-miss reporting.

“I often see that the companies have a really high level of focus on security when it comes to the large tasks. They know that they need protection, check lists and work permits etc. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder at the quite simple shortcomings. In some companies they do not even report near-miss incidents – it is a classic shortcoming which is seen again and again”, Mia Verniere tells ShippingWatch.
