How to correctly use loading programs?

In light of the recent North P&I Club recommendations on how the ship operators may reduce the problems using loading computers, we have gathered hereunder the most crucial prompts: 1. Standardise: Try to standardise the software in use across the fleet. If different vessels have different software, an officer moving within the fleet needs to re-familiarize themselves with the system on board that vessel. 2. Train: Those in charge of using the software should undergo appropriate training. 3. Check: Make sure that the crew are aware what they should always check; 4. Mentor: Junior officers are the Chief Mates of tomorrow! Actively encourage junior officers to learn how to use the system from those in charge of it. 5. Simulator: If you have a spare computer on board, add the software and allow juniors to upload conditions and practice. 6. Feedback: Set up a feedback communication line for the crew to report issues with the software, this will help improve its usability. Remember to
