BP Shipping Ltd. is honing the skills of its 200 ship operators using e-learning. The initiative aims to ensure that staff skills meet a common standard, while easing the pressure of off-site training. 'Shipping is the single biggest risk factor for BP, commercially, environmentally and socially,' says John Harris, fleet operations manager at BP Shipping Ltd. BP has divided the training into two parts. The first stage took all staff up to a minimum level of understanding. Stage two examines different types of voyages and what to do when things go wrong.
