Maritime Logistics Community News : Autumn 2013
19 MARITIME LOGISTICS COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER SUMMER 2012/AUTUMN 2013 o Seaworthiness content as part of the DMO/Navy Re-entry Induction modules, and o Seaworthiness content within the DMO Recruitment/Selection Criteria. o Seaworthiness cultural content in targeted Navy/DMO courses o Benefits Measurement and Reporting. o Looking at a Seaworthiness equivalent of Airworthiness 'Knock It Off' program, based on the Navy Aircraft Maintenance Improvement Project (AMIP) Throughout the roll-out of these strategies there will be wide consultation, including the conduct of 'waterfront' workshops and focus groups across the country to obtain local awareness, support and 'buy-in' to ensure that everyone understands their part with respect to Seaworthiness. Communications and Engagement In support of Culture Change, a Communications and Engagement Plan has been developed and its implementation is critical to the successful implementation of a Seaworthiness Culture. As well as Navy News, a range of mediums will be used including: Senior Leadership Video packages, establishment of an Intranet Web site (http://intranet.defence.gov. au/navyweb/sites/Seaworthiness/comweb.asp?page=178791), and Seaworthiness promotional material. A series of 'Seaworthiness Images' that are platform specific have been developed by the SwCP Communications and Engagement Team and this has been an early success, recently receiving endorsement from CN. An example is: Way Ahead The SwCP will be very busy over the next 12-18 months as it embarks on its Culture Change Plan. We fully appreciate that it takes time to make a successful Culture Change and with that in mind, we are looking at a transition and strategy to continue with instilling a Seaworthiness Culture with Navy/DMO beyond 2014. There is a long road ahead, but we believe that we have got off to a good start and through the ongoing use of the Seaworthiness Obligations, as well as the support of Senior and regional Leadership, the project team will be able to make major inroads to imparting a Seaworthiness Culture across Navy and DMO. Of particular note for the Supply Community is the future role of DGLOG-N as the Support Seaworthiness Authority and its implications, which are still being determined. Ultimately, the success of the RRP depends upon everyone understanding their part in adopting Seaworthiness mindsets and behaviours so we all need to get involved!
