CHIRP Maritime has released its latest podcast discussing lessons learned from reports of a near miss between a yacht and a merchant ship, the use of ECDIS and the handling of flash fires during welding and painting. 

This is the fourth podcast in a series designed to assist individual seafarers, maritime training academies, ship managers and safety committees. See all four editions below.

Safety First 

CHIRP Maritime is the UK Confidential Reporting Programme for maritime safety worldwide, facilitating an independent and confidential reporting system for all seafarers and employees associated with the maritime industries.

CHIRP's reporting program is totally confidential, and only keeps personal details for as long as needed to be in contact with the person submitting the report. When a report is closed, all correspondence and contact information - electronic and paper - are removed.

Reports can be submitted online through CHIRP's secure encrypted online form, by email to or by post:

Centaur House 
Ancells Business Park 
Ancells Road, Fleet 
Hampshire GU51 2UJ

New website for easier reporting

CHIRP Maritime recently updated its website to make it easier for crew to report incidents online in total confidence - an important step towards changing attitudes to incident reporting as part of the wider safety culture onboard superyachts.
