Bridge Resource Management

Bridge Resource Management or BRM was adopted in the early 1990s by the maritime industry as a safety and error management tool and has now become an integral part of the crew’s training. BRM makes use of all available resources including equipment, information, and human resources to achieve safe operations. BRM plays an important role in environments where human error can have devastating effects. It has proven to be an important tool for improving safety in the maritime industry and thus prevent the recurrence of incidents. It can thus help to support a safer and more efficient execution of operations by blending technical with human skills.
