Rightship launches Dry Bulk Management Standard (DBMS)

RightShip has recently announced a new program for the DRY BULK sector which aims to ensure the highest possible levels of safety, security and environmental excellence. The new Dry Bulk Management Standard (DBMS) aims to support the improvement of safety and risk management standards within dry bulk ship management and help drive collaboration, conversation and increased standards in the dry bulk sector.

The guidelines and standards (draft at present) have been created after many months of collaboration with partners and operators across the dry bulk segment and the wider industry, including experienced ship managers and maritime experts.

What are the DBMS Key Objectives?

The program (voluntary at present) is designed to allow ship managers to measure their own Safety Management System (SMS) against that of the agreed industry standards, with an aim of improving the fleet performance and the risk management. This will ensure an operator’s policies align with the industry best practice to both advance their performances and to attain high standards of health, safety, security and pollution prevention.
