|Date issued:||23 May 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Safety Advisory Notice was developed|
The safety management system on board Pasha Bulker did not provide the master with specific guidance about safely putting to sea in adverse weather. Neither the master's standing orders nor the passage plan form prescribed in the safety management system contained any guidance with regard to bridge resource or team management or encouraged its use.
