Getting ready for the new Safety Score – A guide for shipowners

After taking on industry feedback, RightShip reviewed its Safety Score and enhanced it through industry collaboration. 

As a result, we opened the new viewing window for our beta Platform with the revised Safety Scores on 30 November 2020. Customers can now log in and become familiar with the improvements and application of the rules and model to better understand scores that require resolutions. 

The present beta service is still in development and scores are indicative only, meaning these results are not suitable for trade decisions until our formal launch. It is important to note that the data in our beta Platform will not be refreshed before the week of 4 January 2021. From this time, customers will be able to submit their ‘request a review’ for rules in safety scores 1 and 2 within the beta platform. 

The new Safety Score will go live in the first quarter of 2021 and we will provide more updates in January. 

 

For shipowners: what to do if your vessel has a Safety Score of 1 and 2? 

 

The new viewing window of our beta Platform and Safety Scores opened on 30 November 2020. We now invite our shipowner customers to look at their fleet’s indicative scores. Our team recommends reviewing any vessels which are scored SS1 or SS2 in your fleet. In particular, please note if an inspection is required as part of any rule resolution or any inspection due dates for all dry bulk vessels over 14 years of age. 

Customers can also see if there is any vessel information marked as “unknown” in the platform, such as a vessel’s DOC, Flag or Class. This information can be submitted through the existing forms on a vessel’s page. 

If necessary, we encourage you to start preparing your incident and PSC inspection close out information which you will be able to submit through the beta platform, or if you’re a shipowner who’s not currently a customer, you can submit this information by emailing DryCargo@RightShip.com 

From the week commencing 4 January 2021, customers can submit their ‘request a review’ information via the beta Platform. Our new Safety Score includes an expert review as part of the process to confirm corrective actions taken against any of the rule trigged that result in a SS1 or SS2. 

RightShip will endeavour to process any information, reports or data provided by vessel managers and owners as quickly as possible with the following prioritisation to: 

  • Any vessels which are in the process of being vetted
  • Vessels which our vet requesting customers frequently vet
  • Vessels which are of interest to our platform subscribers or key regulators
  • Stakeholders and others supplying updated information like operators or ports and terminals intended for future use 

It is important to note that the data on our platform will not be refreshed before the week of 4 January 2021.
