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.
