Reflective Learning - Weak Signals

Weak signals are subtle signs or indicators which may indicate that some of the barriers intended to prevent an incident are failing or missing. Weak signals can be observed in equipment, human factors and near misses.

The aim of this course is not to just watch a video, it is to think and discuss WEAK SIGNALS. We want the learner to reflect on what the term means to them in their work activities and relate it to situations at their own site. During this course, you will have an opportunity to learn how to prevent incidents from happening on board your ship in the future.
