Abstract:
Over the years, the International maritime Organization (IMO) has developed several maritime safety management practices, regulations and codes at the global level for adoption by signatory coastal states and implementation by maritime operators to ensure safety of navigation and related maritime operations. The coastal states too have made many local safety rules and regulations to supplement domesticated IMO rules. However, the challenge in the full implementation of these safety instruments in the maritime sector particularly in Nigeria remains with the lack commitment of adequate financial resources to invest in these basic safety regulations and practices and training, since most of the safety management practices require employee training in order to yield desired result. The lack of commitment to investing in safety management practices has being linked by previous literature to poor knowledge of the level of returns on investment in safety management practices by indigenous operators who view financial resources spent on safety practices as an expenditure. The study was therefore carried out to appraise the maritime safety management practices and organizational safety performance in Nigerian maritime domain using bourbon interoil Nigeria limited and the International Safety management Code(ISM code) as case studies. It was cast to compare the safety performance of the pre and post ISM training periods at Bourbon and the overall performance of the organization. A mix method was used to carry out the research adopting both historical and survey data while the trend analysis and independent sample t-test statistical tools were used to analyze the data. It was found that; the trend of accident and accident induced losses show a significantly declining trend in the post ISM training period. The independent sample t-test showed that a significant difference exists between the pre and post ISM training periods. The performance of the organization in the post ISM training period is greater by 32.7%. Recommendations were given on the basis of the research findings.
