Mariners have been coping with the effects of larger ships and smaller crews for some time now. In recent years, there has been a concurrent trend towards greater cultural and ethnic diversity among ships' crewsand towards the employment of less experienced seafarers. These trends carry with them clear implications for pilots, for whom interaction with shipboard staff is vital.

  • Is language and communication going to be an increasing problem?
  • Is there sufficient understanding of cultural expectations?

Videotel has addressed these questions by producing a training package that is aimed at both the bridge team and the pilots to help form better communication and understanding between each other. It highlights problems that have occurred in pilotage waters and promotes safe practice, to reduce the likelihood of them recurring. Ultimately, the package aims to further improve safety of navigation in pilotage waters.

Pilot On Board! uses original dramatic and probing techniques. Simulated incidents are acted out and explained with an ethnic mix of people in varying situations and different locations. It has been combined with interviews from serving Pilots and Deck Officers to form an informative and highly educational programme.

Working closely with PD TEESPORT pilots and with the full support of the International Maritime Pilots Association, Pilot On Board! is an important production that contains some powerful and compelling messages. It's a programme designed to encourage both pilots and seafarers to think about various issues, what to look for in the other's professionalism whilst maintaining a mutual respect.
