SAFEMETRIX MARITIME RANK SPECIFIC ASSESSMENTS BY SAFEBRIDGE

SAFEBRIDGE

SafeMetrix by Safebridge is an online assessment platform created to help companies in the maritime industry make better crewing decisions using relevant industry and rank-specific data.

With an easy-to-use web-based, platform, SafeMetrix supports Crew Admins and Recruiters by providing them with a detailed assessment of seafarer’s soft and cognitive skills. It offers the ability to assign tests and collect data in order to generate individual and company level reports based on a scoring mechanism, which compares skills of the seafarer with a group of officers of the same rank category.

The integration of SafeMetrix into the crewing process provides substantial benefits to both companies and seafarers, into the following areas:

  • Selection: Enhanced validity of interviews via preliminary screening
  • Retention: Improved position adaptability and decreased turnover
  • Promotion: Enhanced timely and transparent career development
  • Training: Optimized training initiatives with targeted actions

The product was created in partnership with industry experts and the seafarers. Therefore, it is focused on delivering maritime, rank-specific psychometric assessments for the crews' non-technical skills which are proved to affect the performance of a seafarer.

The important role of seafarers’ soft skills has been officially introduced since STCW Convention & Code 2010 Manila Amendments. These skills are increasingly important for both the wellbeing of the seafarer and the overall safety of the operations at sea.
