Research shows that 80% or more of accidents result from human error. Often that error is fatigue-related. As maritime regulations continue to proliferate, vessel crews are being expected to do more and more, potentially pushing up the risk of fatigue.

Fortunately, there's a lot of good science pointing to effective--and affordable--ways to manage the risk of fatigue.

During this intensive two-day conference you'll learn about CEMS, the Coast Guard's CREW ENDURANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM and the benefits it offers, including presentations about CEMS implementation on a Coast Guard ship and in a number of varied commercial maritime operations.

Another important focus of this year's conference is maritime security training and certification. You'll get authoritative answers on exactly what training is required, what the certification process is, where training is available--and more important how to sell security to your people and how to dovetail it into your existing safety management philosophy.

As with all Marine Log conferences, there will be ample time plugged into the program and during social breaks for delegates to exchange information, discuss concerns and network.

The conference fee of $625 includes admission to all conference sessions, luncheons and the cocktail reception as well as the Marine Log MARITIME OPERATIONS: HUMAN FACTORS 2004 conference documentation on CD-ROM.

MITAGS has arranged a special room rate of $119/night (single) or $171/night double that includes dinner on your arrival night (or after hours "night lunch") plus breakfast next morning for each night of lodging.
