NZISM has secured Nippin Anand, one of the world's leading safety investigators, for a 5-part series of online Masterclass Workshops that will run throughout July. Securing the Scottish-based Nippin for these workshops has been something of a coup and the opportunity to enable a wider audience to benefit from his expertise seems too good to miss. We are therefore opening up the workshops to non-NZISM members and inviting the members, staff, or clients of partner organisations such as your own to join us.


: 8:30-10:30am 

Workshop 1: Wednesday 1st July - Introducing the case
Workshop 2: Wednesday 8th July - Uman and organisational factors in safety critical operations
Workshop 3: Wednesday  15th July - Managing the unexpected
Workshop 4: Wednesday 22nd July - Discussion and Debreifs
Workshop 5: Wednesday  29 July - From a just culture towards a learning culture

Price: $275 incl GST. 

This includes 5 x Masterclass workshops plus NZISM membership until 31/3/21.

Nippin Anand 
Nippin Anand is a licensed Master Mariner and an internationally recognised specialist in human factors and safety management. His significant experience in the maritime, oil and gas sectors spans hands-on operations, academic research, consultancy, and certification and regulation. He is keenly sought both as a consultant and a guest speaker.



At the end of the series, participants will have benefitted from a Masterclass in the emerging safety sciences, told in an engaging documentary-style narrative that uses the 2012 Costa Concordia disaster as a case study. To the media of the day, the Costa Concordia was a dramatic tale of a cursed ship, and heroes and villains but the story - and Nippin's investigation - runs deep and pulls upon many sources, including first-had video interviews with the vilified captain of the vessel.

Here's what international experts in the Health and Safety field have said of Nippin's course:

  • Todd Conklin "Every investigation leader - anywhere - should sit through this with Nippin. It will change the way the world does investigations"
  • Erik Hollnagel "Nippin's provocative comparison of a 'hero' and 'villain' provided much food for thought"


 Past attendees also offer great commendations:

  • "Even though I don't work in the maritime industry... I'll always be thankful that I made the right decision to attend this workshop" 
  • "I wasn't sure what to expect, but found that much of the analysis and insights into a sinking ship is highly relevant to my career in Biotech manufacturing"
  • "If you are an investigator of any stripe, if you are an HSE or H/OP professional in any industry, or even if you just love to solve mysteries, THIS is a great workshop to attend! Worth. Every. Penny. Spent"
