The session began with a case study on a near emergency situation in the engine room, its analysis and a conclusion highlighting typical human errors. Audience was divided into several groups. Each group studied  the case and analyzed the entire incident as to what went wrong, reason for the same and what action  could have been taken to avoid the incident. Each group presented their views and speaker after making an assessment apprised all as to the right approach and what could have been done. The next part of the session explored human behavior related to team work, communication and leadership through a workshop session.
