Search and Rescue Workshop

Workshop overview

Build effective strategies that can help reduce the risk of accidents at sea. Our Search and Rescue workshop offers an interactive approach to addressing and introducing Human Factors to ashore and onboard personnel. 

The overall goal is to provide you and your team with the necessary tools to break communication barriers, individual limitations and system vulnerabilities that may compromise safety on board and assist you with identifying practical strategies to design error-tolerant solutions. 

The workshop is designed for smaller groups of 8 to 20 people and is ideal for gathering different groups of maritime staff to create a cross-organisational understanding.

About the workshop

Our experienced Human Factors trainers will work closely with you to create a bespoke Search and Rescue workshop according to your needs, including any particular topics or problem areas you may have already identified. 

Since we are a smaller number of people at our workshops, we include a series of experiential learning exercises. This means that when you join one of our workshops, you will experience the benefits and pitfalls on your own body and mind, creating a much more effective form of learning.

Our workshops for SAR operations can help in: 

  • Developing and implementing standard operating procedures, considering the risk of human error 
  • Operationalising an incident reporting and learning system
  • Creating a safety culture where ashore and onboard workers can raise safety concerns
  • Implementing strategies to reduce the risk of errors, such as double-checking and cross-checking in a “Know. Check. Ask.”-fashion. 
  • Understanding the impact of fatigue and stress on mental performance
  • Understanding and accepting the effect of team behaviour synergy

When booking a workshop for your search and rescue operation at NaviMinds, you will receive a bespoke programme customised to suit you and your organisation’s needs. 

We include curated materials for your SAR organisation that will help you introduce the topic of Human Factors.

Our experienced team of Human Factors trainers is dedicated to providing the highest quality training possible. We have spent years developing eye-opening games and exercises that help us prove that human error is a normal part of our human makeup. We guarantee that our workshops on Human Factors will be an eye-opening and thought-provoking learning experience for your Search and Rescue team.

At NaviMinds, we deliver Human Factors and resource management training to various safety-critical industries. We are specialists in Human Factors and have vast experience designing lessons and workshops for the maritime industry.
