Are you ready for 1 July 2018???

If, like the majority of people we speak to you would answer this question ‘am I ready for what on 1 July 2018???’ the simple answer is that its the date that AMSA take over full responsibility for service delivery from the States and NT.

Its not entirely clear at this stage as to exactly what this will mean for fleets or individual vessels. Here at Kedge we are keeping our ears very close to the ground to give our customers the best chance of a simple and straightforward transition.

If there is anything that is concerning you or that we can assist with please by all means drop us a line at service@kedge.com.au

New and Updated AMSA Standards and Marine Orders Released

Some good work from the AMSA standards and legislation team has just been released.

The Fire Standard C4, a perennial nightmare to apply has been re-cast and looks pretty decent.

There is some good news on transitional standards application which could simplify bringing  vessels into new areas of operation without  having to completely re-design and rebuild them.

Here’s the link to the Standards- you will find the others in the new-look AMSA website under their applicable sections. https://www.amsa.gov.au/vessels-operators/regulations-and-standards-vessels/national-standard-commercial-vessels

Negotiating these legal and tech standards can be a bit confusing- if you get stuck call us on 1 300 89 95 96 and we will link you with one of our  friendly experienced surveyors who will be happy to help you.

Human Factors Design Capability

Capabilities include:

  • The ability to conduct HF/HCD analysis of ship designs using Usability Heuristics underpinned by software such as Human CAD- applying Apsara’s cutting edge findings from her recent PhD research at AMC.
  • The capacity to conduct HF/HCD analysis of other designs and work spaces- for example AUV launching and recovery modules, Offshore workspaces etc.
  • Perform link analysis/ergonomic analysis of design drawings and provide recommendation whether the drawings comply with available HF design guidelines and criteria.

If you are designing vessels of any size and need cutting edge HF/HCD input we would love to join your team. Contact Adam on 0417 544 339 for a confidential discussion.
