Capt. Nicolo Terrei, Managing Director of RINA Academy Philippines, is featured on the Safety4SeaLog-May 2018 for providing a feedback in the ‘Resilience Watch’ special column answered the question “What are the key drivers & barriers towards developing a resilient culture across the industry?”

As stated by Capt. Terrei “Training is vital part of the human resource development & current events have proven why it’s necessary for the crew progress. Key drivers towards developing resilient culture could be: Company commitment to the resilient culture program; Better ship to shore communication regarding implementation of resilient culture; Building recreational activities to reduce crew’s anxiety; Superiors resilience counselling with juniors. On the contrary, barriers could be: Multi-nationality cultures & different views for resilient culture; The financial cost on investing in a resilient culture program; Lack of cooperation & self-confidence to consult problems to supervisors. Therefore, company’s commitment should include allocation of funds to support seafarer’s welfare onboard”.
