It is a well-documented fact that human error accounts for too many maritime accidents; with fatigue and overexertion being a prominent causal factor.

One of the serious pain-points for crews on board vessels – as well as shore side organisations supporting global fleets – is how to possibly avoid fatigue for all crew members, stay compliant and at same time manage the Rest/Work hours efficiently on board.

At Teekay Tankers we always put safety first and are constantly striving to find new and innovative ways to deliver Operational Excellence. From this, the idea of a real-time, holistic and transparent rest/work hour management system was born.

Teekay Tankers has during the last couple of years worked closely with SeaSolutions on an exciting journey and have co-created the next generation rest/work hour management tool: REST MANAGER. Integrated face recognition features, provide enhanced user interface to deliver a truly proactive compliance experience. The application is now running on 48 of our vessels, giving unprecedented insights and advantages to the crew on board.

WHY USE REST MANAGER

Reduced cost

Ship Operators get a higher level of transparency on resource management which will lead to better optimization of crew resources.

Easy to use

Crew only needs to check in and out of work using tablets/mobile devices with face recognition technology.

Adaptable

Time adjustment functionality to calculate and check work and rest hour compliance as vessel adapts to local time zones, including International Dateline crossing.

Transparent

A dashboard monitor on dedicated TV screens on board offers real time overview of each crew’s work and rest hour status.

Alert

Built-in warning system, which is easy to configure, sends emails to ensure immediate action onboard.

Efficient

Instantly checking for compliance in 5-minute intervals – in real time – to warn of potential non-conformances well in advance for optimal planning of work and rest hours.

Intuitive

Depicts each crew member’s maximum stretch of working hours without risk of rest hour violation upon commencing duty.

Clever

Shows the safe call out time for resting crew members without them violating the rest hours in case of urgent and unscheduled assignments.

Compliance and Regulations

I believe that this is a huge step forward in managing seafarer fatigue which allows a new proactive rather than the traditional reactive approach.

The Isle of Man Ship Registry did an initial scoping exercise last year to determine if your solution, Rest Manager would meet our current national legislation and I am pleased to confirm that it does.

The Isle of Man Ship Registry would accept your solution for use on Isle of Man registered ships should any of our shipowners or managers wish to trial your solution.

Innovation and technology solutions award

Award winning Rest Management Solution.

“Teekay Tankers received the “Innovation and Technology Adaption Award” at the CrewConnect Global 2019, due to their successful implementation of the REST MANAGER solution”.

While several dedicated software solutions are currently available in the market, relatively simple to use and allowing for some planning of work and rest hour schedules – these still mainly operate on the basis of actual rest and work hour data being recorded after the fact/via keystrokes. However, a different approach – integrating known technology- makes it much easier for seafarers to register work and rest hour data as it happens; at the same time enabling a truly proactive compliance follow up and overview in real time. Instead of relying on manual data entry at the end of the day, a new onboard app deployed on dedicated Android tablets installed at strategic locations onboard, utilizes face recognition technology; capture of live data will happen as each crew member checks in and out upon starting and stopping their work accordingly. In a collaborative and innovative effort, Teekay Tankers and SeaSolutions have co-created the next generation rest/work management solution REST MANAGER.

Frequently Asked Questions

How difficult is it to check in and out?

Mounted tablets on board – with tailor made Face Recognition software – ensures that the crew can check in and out of ‘work mode’ without having to make one single keystroke. They simply check in and out of work/rest mode – in line with the operational reality – by showing their face

 

Who is handling the solution crew on board or shore?

REST MANAGER is a tool built for the vessel and the crew on board; yet it can share all relevant data with the shore side module (normally every 24 hours the content of each vessel database will be shared with the shore module)

Is there a lot of administration with the solution?

When signing on a seafarer a photo will need to be taken – and six data fields entered. Then the seafarer is ‘active’ in the system – and ready to use it. All personal data are kept on board the vessel (including crew photo’s) – honoring all relevant GDPR/security measures.

What hardware/infrastructure is needed to run the solution?

– Six to eight Android tablets; fixed mounted (in locked casings) + 1-2 active spare tablets (e.g. in table holders for Master/Chief Engineer) could be one, proven setting. However, this is highly dependent on existing vessel IT infrastructure – and existing on board servers may be used as well
– Wireless network, routers, cabling to be established on board (arranged by company IT)

How is the software installed onboard?

One installation package will be provided (to be installed on the on board server). From there all Android tablets will be installed/configured (via ‘pull’ concept).
Remote on board access/-support possible (e.g. via TeamViewer or similar tools)
