How Data Saves Marine Lives

By hiloadm | May 22nd, 2022

Coronavirus, environmental concerns, ever-growing business competition – the world is changing increasingly quickly.

As new elements emerge more and more rapidly, they need to be taken advantage of. When they become threats, they need to be mitigated – fast.

Why do you need increasingly accurate data?

Such a volatile, changeable environment means businesses can’t rely just on past experience. Instead, they need to understand the exact current situation they face in order to make the right decisions.

It is therefore critical to have an accurate understanding of where you’re placed in relation to:

  • Your competitors
  1. Fail to meet safety standards and you put lives at risk.
  • The latest industry issues.

This is because you always face 2 key requirements:

  1. Fall behind your competitors and risk losing out on business.

To keep crew safety paramount while driving business forward, you need the right information.

Your fleet’s make up is unique; but the situations you face may not be. The data collected from your own vessels is crucial. However, it is more powerful when combined with experience from many other shipping companies. High impact events are rare – this means we need to pool our data in order to prevent them.

Using data to improve maritime safety

By knowing where to focus your safety efforts, you can make small, proactive changes to prevent major catastrophes.

Access to accurate data analysis means you can not only see how safe your fleet is currently, but what is likely to happen in the future. With this information:

  1. You know exactly how effective your fleet is at managing safety
  2. You manage what your fleet needs now, rather than your historical issues, or other people’s risks
  3. You protect your seafarers by taking the right action at the right time
  4. Above all – you save lives on the seas.

HiLo’s fleet safety decision-support system

No one shipping company has enough high impact incidents to generate the data needed for analysis – and you wouldn’t want to. We need the granularity of internal shipping data multiplied on a large scale to see patterns.

HiLo’s customers provide their full internal data for analysis. HiLo standardises information from many different data sets and processes it with our world-leading statistical analysis. We transform this big data into a simple decision-making tool, so you know where and how to act.
