18.104.22.168 REVIEW OF THE PASSAGE PLAN BEFORE EXECUTION
A common cause of accidents is lack of situational awareness. The departure or arrival plan should be reviewed immediately before it is about to be executed and the Master should invite his/her officers to express any concerns they may have. Circumstances or conditions may be different from when the plan was first made and new hazards may have developed, e.g. other vessel movements, the presence of dredgers etc.
