Risk Assessment on Ships - summarized for seafarers and mariners
This video summarizes the practice of risk assessment conducted on board ships for identifying the risks, the severity of the harm, and the strategies to counter the identified risks. Risks are always managed and can never be removed. Hence, senior officers on ships must always conduct an adequate risk assessment on board ships to identify the risks before starting a task. The priority should always be to keep the ship's crew and the ship safe from harm.

Risk Assessment For Mooring Operation
The key to safe and effective mooring operations is planning and ensuring that appropiate procedures are followed. A mooring operation risk assessment should always be carried out. Suitable controls and procedures should be in place to minimise the risks identified for this operation. The use of tollbox talks to discuss the operation and the hazards involved is an effective way to help reduce accidents. It may seem like an unnecessary task to undertake, as mooring is a routine operation that most crew are very familiar with. However, this is the danger, as familiarity and complacency can lead to a mistake and an accident. #MooringOperation #RiskAssessment #ShipSafety Don't Forget to Subscribe Us Like Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarineOnlineYoutube Follow Twitter: https://twitter.com/MarineOnlineYou Follow Google+ https://plus.google.com/107450234425940445683 Website: https://marineonlineyou.blogspot.com/

Assessing Risk: Hot Work
This training film encourages crew to take another look at Risk Assessment, explaining not just HOW to perform a Risk Assessment, but WHY it ahould be done. The film looks specifically at Hot Work, but the lessons learned are clearly shown to apply to any area of work onboard. The film explains the difference between the terms Hazard and Risk, making it clearer to crew what it is they should be assessing, and why. Additional training materials are included on the DVD to aid the trainer in getting the best from the film, although it can quite happily be viewed individually.

Ocean Prediction and Risk Assessment
Accurate predictions of the oceanic circulation are critical for many economic sectors, including various transport phenomena, marine ecosystem and fisheries, energy harvesting, as well as underwater mining. This overview shall focus on aspects of ocean predictions that are especially relevant to optimizing oil and gas mining operations as well as minimizing the associated hazards. We will address associated challenges and opportunities, particularly those related to ocean modeling systems, weather forecasting, the role of ocean observations and data assimilation, and efficient methods for assessing uncertainty and risk.

Hazard, Risk & Safety - Understanding Risk Assessment, Management and Perception
(subtitles available in English, French, Dutch, Spanish, Chinese and Russian, German, and a French version is available here: https://youtu.be/wRmfvFYDNr8) Hazard, Risk & Safety Danger, risques et sécurité Gevaar, risico's en veiligheid Peligro, riesgo y seguridad Опасность, риск и безопасность Gefahr, Risiko und Sicherheit We all hear these terms on a daily basis. So and so a chemical, physical or a biological agent poses a risk; This or that product is a hazard or behaving a certain way is unsafe. A lot of the time “hazard” and “risk” are freely used to mean the same thing. However they are not. Hazard is the potential to cause harm. Risk on the other hand is the likelihood of harm in defined circumstances. In a nutshell, hazard and risk are not always aligned as the risk depends on the exposure to the hazard ; similarly, risk, safety and perception of risk are not always aligned; this can make political decisions regarding safety levels difficult to make, in these cases it is especially important to base them on facts rather than on subjective perceptions. http://www.greenfacts.org

UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 - Urgent priorities for the UK
This animation accompanies the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment 2017 Evidence Report. This report has been prepared for the UK Government by the Adaptation Sub-Committee of the Committee on Climate Change. www.theccc.org.uk/uk-climate-change-risk-assessment-2017 Script Climate change is a global problem. The world is already around a degree warmer than it was, due to extra greenhouse gases in the atmosphere from human activity. Scientists have warned for some time that a temperature rise of two degrees or more risks severe and potentially irreversible changes to our planet. 2016 is set to be the warmest year ever recorded. If so, it will be the third record warmest year in a row. Last year’s historic Paris Agreement was an important step towards tackling this. But the effects of climate change are already being felt in the UK. Average temperatures are increasing and there is a trend towards milder winters and hotter summers. We can also expect more frequent floods, like those we’ve seen in recent years. And there are plenty of other challenges on the horizon. Which is why the Committee on Climate Change has carried out a comprehensive, scientific assessment of the risks and opportunities for the UK. The climate change risk assessment is the result of more than three years of work, involving hundreds of leading scientists, and experts from both the public and private sectors. It shows that the greatest threats to the UK come from periods of too much or too little water, increasing average and extreme seasonal temperatures, and rising sea levels. Action is needed to tackle six key risks: The increasing chance of more severe and widespread flooding. Risks to public health from higher temperatures, including in overheating homes. A risk of shortages in public water supplies, and scarce water for farming. A threat to nature including loss of native species. Food price spikes and potential disruption to UK and global food production. And risks from new and emerging pests and diseases affecting people, animals and plants. The longer action is delayed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and adapt to the changes, the higher the costs and risks will be. Climate change is happening now. This new UK risk assessment identifies where more effort is necessary, and urgent, to address these risks. It’s time to act.

7 Things That Shorten Your Lifespan
7 things that shorten your lifespan. Did you know that 70 percent of American adults engage in some form of life-shortening activity? If you have more than three bad habits, you are 6 times more likely to be in poor health. #HeartAttack #Lifespan #LifeExpectancy Sources: https://pastebin.com/duzKkGYY Timestamps: Running:01:03 Loneliness:01:59 Smoking:03:26 Air Travel:04:18 Being Grumpy:06:25 Unemployment:07:48 Having Too Much Sex:09:07 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Summary: Running Running can put serious stress on your heart. Most who die while running do so through a heart attack. Heavy water consumption leads to low sodium, which can result in hyponatremia. Warm temperatures are also a factor, making runners susceptible to heat stroke if they’re not careful. Loneliness Those who remain socially isolated for long periods of time and engage in little to no physical activity, have an increased early death risk of 29%. Still not enough? Loneliness, has the same health risk as smoking 15 cigarettes per day. This has the potential of shortening your life by 8 whole years. Smoking Smoking cigarettes reduces your life expectancy by double digit numbers! For females, 11 years. For men, it’s 12! However, quitting before age 40 can lower your risk of smoke-related death by 90%. Air Travel Upon hitting the mark of 39,000 feet, humans are exposed to 64 times more cosmic radiation than they are at sea level. Being Grumpy Releasing the odd guffaw after hearing something funny can increase one’s blood flow and relax muscles for up to 45 minutes. It is also known to strengthen the immune system by increasing cells in your body. This helps improve your resistance to certain diseases. Laughter is just so important. Unemployment An increase of 10% in unemployment equals roughly a year and a half off the population’s lifespan. Having Too Much Sex Did you know that some beetles mate everyday? No, not the band members! I mean, I’m sure they did just fine in that department. I’m referring to the actual bug. That’s right, apparently they like to get freaky. They also happen to die fairly early... This is due to hormones in their body that damage their immune system. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Bestie : https://goo.gl/tUqro6 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bestieinc/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GoMRI RFP-V: Deep-sea Risk Assessment & species sensitivity  (Knap)
The Deep-sea Risk Assessment and species sensitivity to WAF, CEWAF and Dispersant project is lead by P.I. Anthony Hayden Knap, Texas A&M University. http://research.gulfresearchinitiative.org/research-awards/projects/?pid=291 Subsea injection of dispersants offers some significant benefits compared to the application of dispersants on the sea surface, for example access to the freshest and non ] emulsified oil in the high turbulence environment, ability to reduce the volume of required dispersant by injecting it directly into the oil stream without the loss of the product, ability to operate day and night under a wider range of weather conditions, and availability of a large water mass to rapidly decrease the concentration of a dispersed oil intrusion. Although dispersant application at the sea surface has been extensively studied, more data are needed on the efficiency and environmental impacts of dispersed oil in the subsea to evaluate and document acceptability of this response technique. We will test a series of deep sea organisms to the effect of specific individual hydrocarbons, as well as WAF, CEWAF and Dispersant. If successful, we are hoping to develop a new method for the effects of contaminants on marine organisms. This project was funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) in the RFP-V funding program. The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) is a 10-year independent research program established to study the effect, and the potential associated impact, of hydrocarbon releases on the environment and public health, as well as to develop improved spill mitigation, oil detection, characterization and remediation technologies. An independent and academic 20-member Research Board makes the funding and research direction decisions to ensure the intellectual quality, effectiveness and academic independence of the GoMRI research. All research data, findings and publications will be made publicly available. The program was established through a $500 million financial commitment from BP.

Reefs at Risk Revisited
http://www.wri.org/reefs Under the Reefs at Risk Revisited project, WRI and its partners have developed a new, detailed assessment of the status of and threats to the world's coral reefs. This information is intended to raise awareness about the location and severity of threats to coral reefs. These results can also catalyze opportunities for changes in policy and practice that could safeguard coral reefs and the benefits they provide to people for future generations. Reefs at Risk Revisited is a high-resolution update of the original global analysis, Reefs at Risk: A Map-Based Indicator of Threats to the World's Coral Reefs. Reefs at Risk Revisited uses a global map of coral reefs at 500-m resolution, which is 64 times more detailed than the 4-km resolution map used in the 1998 analysis, and benefits from improvements in many global data sets used to evaluate threats to reefs (most threat data are at 1 km resolution, which is 16 times more detailed than those used in the 1998 analysis). Like the original Reefs at Risk, this study evaluates threats to coral reefs from a wide range of human activities. For the first time, it also includes an assessment of climate-related threats to reefs. In addition, Reefs at Risk Revisited includes a global assessment of the vulnerability of nations and territories to coral reef degradation, based on their dependence on coral reefs and their capacity to adapt. WRI led the Reefs at Risk Revisited analysis in collaboration with a broad partnership of more than 25 research, conservation, and educational organizations. Partners have provided data, offered guidance on the analytical approach, contributed to the report, and served as critical reviewers of the maps and findings.

Keynote: LightsOut: Climate Change Risk to Internet Infrastructure
Climate change is perhaps the most significant problem facing humanity. The dramatic rise in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere over the past 100 years is causing changes in weather patterns including increased likelihood of severe storms, forest fires and rapid rise in sea levels due to melting polar ice caps and thermal expansion of seawater. In this talk I will describe our recent study that considers the risks to Internet infrastructure in the US due to sea level rise. Our study is based on sea level incursion projections from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Internet infrastructure deployment data from Internet Atlas. We assess risks in terms of the amount and type of infrastructure that will be under water in different time intervals over the next 100 years. We find that 4,067 miles of fiber conduit will be under water and 1,101 nodes (e.g., points of presence and colocation centers) will be surrounded by water in the next 15 years. We further quantify the risks of sea level rise by defining a metric that considers the combination of geographic scope and Internet infrastructure density. We use this metric to examine different metro regions and service provider infrastructures that are at highest risk. Our on-going work is focused on expanding our risk analysis beyond the US, considering additional threats, assessing potential impact and developing mitigation strategies.

Arcopol Plus: Risk prioritisation methodology for hazardous and noxious substances for public health
Large numbers and quantities of hazardous and noxious substances (HNS) are transported by sea. For this reason, the prioritisation of risk from HNS becomes an important element to emergency planning and preparedness. The colleagues of ARCOPOL Plus project implemented a methodology to prioritise potential acute public health risks associated with incidents involving maritime transport of hazardous and noxious substances (HNS). To this end, authors have developed a tool and database with toxicology and behaviour statistics for over 300 HNS. The methodology does not provide a process for assessing risks for specific incidents but instead aims to provide strategic risk information for public health planning and preparedness. Whilst chronic effects are important public health considerations, acute health impacts have been used as the risk driver for this assessment. This decision has been taken in order to reflect the type of incident scenario envisaged, i.e. associated with large chemical releases, and additionally because of the inherent difficulties associated with attributing chronic effects such as excess cancers to specific events / agents. With this index, regional planners or port operators have the possibility of identify risk of most relevance to the region by reviewing statistical data on maritime transport and handling of HNS.

How do you manage the risk of climate change?
Firms need to perform risk assessments of floods, water stress, extreme heat, storms, and sea level rise, experts say. They should also incorporate the long-term impact of climate change into business planning and strategic decisions. Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, and Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg L.P., highlight the way these major issues affect global markets. This video was first shown at ‘Advancing TCFD guidance on physical climate risk and opportunities’ at EBRD HQ in London on the 31st May. #climatechange #sustainable #green #future #EBRD Still haven’t subscribed to EBRD on YouTube? ►► https://www.youtube.com/user/ebrdtv Follow us on social media: ►Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ebrdhq/ ►Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ebrd_official/ ►LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/ebrd/ ►Twitter: https://twitter.com/EBRD
BE SAFE: flood risk reduction using vegetated foreshores
Natural processes can strengthen flood defences in our delta. For instance, spacious and vegetated foreshores located in front of dikes absorb wave energy and reduce wave-battering during storm conditions. In addition, foreshores will be built up by trapping sediment and accordingly keep pace with rising sea level. Not only do foreshores in combination with dikes provide improved protection against flooding, nature and recreation also benefit from a restored coastal ecosystem. Vegetated foreshores enhance biodiversity and offer excellent breeding conditions for fish, and space for the Dunlin, Sea Lavender and Samphire. At the same time, humans can enjoy a wonderful environment. The research project ‘Be Safe’ investigates this innovative approach, which combines nature, flood protection and recreation. To allow growth of the Dutch delta and keep pace with rising sea level, vegetated foreshores play a critical role. Be Safe examines the functioning of foreshores in the field, the laboratory and with computer models. Successful implementation requires innovative cooperation and sharing responsibilities across stakeholders. In Be Safe universities cooperate with governments, water boards, companies and NGO’s to establish a direct link between research and practice.
Is the Thwaites Glacier contributing to sea-level rise?
The Thwaites Glacier is an enormous glacier roughly the size of the UK or the US state of Idaho. It is rapidly draining into the ocean at a rate that is of serious concern to scientists and policy makers.
