  1. Ocean Time Marine

    Operating a Fleet of nine vessels on Sydney Harbour is extremely challenging. Over the last 10 years we have developed appropriate Safety Management System (SMS) as required by NSW Maritime/Roads and Maritime Services in paper form. As we are all aware the Safety Management Systems have become, due to legislation, increasingly demanding for crew and the Designated Person Ashore (DPA) to keep all of the documentation valid and current as required by the Regulators. Record keeping of Risk Registers, Hazard Reporting, Safety Audits, Record of Emergency and Operational Drill, Defect Reports, Engineer/Deck Logs, Pre-Sail/Shut-Down Checks and Procedures, Confined Space Permit, Safe Work Method Statements and Hot Work Permits are just some of the required documentation required to operate a vessel safely and compliant. To find a maritime specific system that holds all of these documents in one easy accessible place, electronically, had proved to be challenging until we discovered Ocean Time Marine Dashboard.
    We were looking to upgrade our SMS and I found Ocean Time Marine while surfing the net. After reading Ocean Time Marine’s Web Site I applied for a free trial. That same afternoon, I received a phone call from the founder of the Ocean Time Marine and we set up a meeting the following Tuesday. Once they talked me through the potential of Dashboard I was convinced that this system was the right one for Sydney Heritage Fleet. Not only was the system user friendly but it was very specific for the Marine Industry and designed by a Marine Engineer and Surveyor. This Web based Dashboard system ticked all the boxes.
    We have five vessels in Survey. The Steam Tug Waratah,1E, built in 1902; Steam Launch Lady Hopetoun, 1E, built 1902; Motor Vessel Harman, 1E; the Tug Bronzewing 2E, 2D and finally the James Craig built in 1874, 1E, 1C. The other vessels with Operational Certificates are the Currawong, Boomerang, Berrima and Protex – there are nine altogether.

    We also have three workshops, one at Roselle and two at Wharf 7, Pyrmont. We now use Ocean Time Marine for our land based Safety Management System. Both sites carry out high risk work and require Safe Work Method Statement (WorkCover Regulation) to be read and signed off each morning (Tool Box Meeting). We use Dashboard to store the SWMS templates and open the file in Adobe Active PDF which allows the active participants to read the SWMS, fill out the required fields and electronically sign off alongside their printed names. Should note that all of this is done on our Apple Ipad Air 2s and after the SWMS are completed the documents are saved in the Adobe Document Cloud and emailed to the appropriate stakeholder, team leaders and active participants.
    Managing a Fleet of this magnitude requires many hours of planning and understanding of Maritime Law, Regulation and the correct procedures for a safe operation. Carrying passengers is high risk and in the case of the unlikely event of collision or fire the consequences are potentially catastrophic. With the understanding of these risks it is paramount to have all the Certificates of Survey and Operation and Crew Certification valid and current. Dashboard provides this tool to remind the owners and operators when each certificate expiry date is due.
    The ability to check records from anywhere is brilliant. A good example of this was the first time the James Craig had her offshore overnight charter. The Engineers completed all of the pre-sail checks and voyage Log Book electronically and after the first shift the Chief Engineer saved both the Pre-sail Check List and Voyage Log Book page into Adobe Document Cloud on the James Craig Ipad Air 2 (Telstra Connected). At that time, I was at home (Sunday) and the vessel was eight nautical miles off Sydney North Head. Within moments I was able to read all of the Main Engine and Auxiliary vital instrumentation recordings on my Ipad Air 2 via Adobe Document Cloud which the Engineering Team on James Craig had recorded. We have six Ipad Air 2 and all of them are linked via the same email address which allows all of them to have the same Adobe Account. This mean that each time we update the Adobe Document Cloud with a new document the other five Ipad Air 2s are synced.

    Combining the Ocean Time Marine Dashboard and Adobe cloud storage we have developed a powerful way of managing our Fleets Safety Management System. We keep our all our required Documentation Templates in Ocean Time Marine Dashboard which allows the Engineers and Masters to then open, example the Voyage Log Page and complete all of the recordings or check lists.
    Once the document is complete we can either email it or send it to your cloud.
    I highly recommend Ocean Time Marine to those who are either in the process of setting up a new Safety Management System or upgrading their existing system. Dashboard is a brilliant and a cost effective system to keep all of your Maritime/WorkCover Certificates and working SMS documentation for your crew and the Designated Person Ashore (DPA)

    I found Oceantime Marine after googling Safety Management System templates on the internet. This has been the best find I have had in a long time. Not only does it provide a very comprehensive SMS template that can be tailored to your particular vessel, the Cloud based Dashboard provides a perfect environment to keep all your statutory information in one place, and provides easy access to all those that need this information.
