For VENLYS Maritime Specialisation Services building and studying resilience is a long standing objective and a multiple year effort. Combining principles from resilience engineering with human element related aspects and characteristics permitted us to promote an innovative resilience framework and relevant activities. SHELL elegantly targeted to compliance and solid implementation of resilience, our goal remains to go one step further, to introduce a new rationale for safety and resilience. 


We can define SHELL induced resilience in a simple, brief and self-explanatory manner: for us it is to be able to 'Manage the Unexpected’! This can initiate further discussions and actions, we can all work together towards a safer and MORE RESILIENT industry!
