Nippin Anand PhD MSc Master Mariner FNI CSci

Hello, and a warm welcome to my website. I am a Principal Specialist in management systems and human factors. With more than two decades of exposure within the maritime, oil and gas sector I have accumulated a career capital that spans across hands on operations, academic research, consultancy and certification and regulation in the maritime, oil and gas sector.

I am genuinely interested in risk and safety management from a human and organisational perspective. But I believe that ‘softer’ human sciences cannot be learnt without a good grasp of technical knowledge. As a master mariner and a human factors scientist, I feel I am in a privileged position to understand both technical and social dimensions of risk and safety.

There is a common perception in many organisations and society at large that safety runs against profitability and efficiency. This is understandable when safety is ‘measured’ as a cost resulting from accidents, incidents, commercial losses and degradation of environment. In recent years, science is coming to realise the limits of this traditional approach to safety. Cutting edge research is gradually showing us the light to transform safety management into a tool for improving performance and efficiency in a pro-active manner. My mission is to simplify this knowledge and make it more accessible. I call it linking theory with practice.
