Possible factors leading to sea transportation accidents in Indonesia are divided into three, namely nature, technical, and human error. Human factor is the biggest contributor to the number of accidents at sea. One can be caused by the lack of implementation of bridge resource management on board, especially on the platform. This study aimed to identify the application of bridge resource management on board ships and provide recommendations for solving the problem of inhibiting factors of its application. The research was carried out during a 12-month shipboard training at one of the tanker ships based in Indonesia. This study used a qualitative descriptive method. Data are obtained through observation and questionnaires with related parties as primary data, and documentation and literature review as secondary data. The results showed that the application of bridge resource management still has many deviations that make its application not optimal. This is caused by factors from human resources, and other external factors such as lack of utilization of navigation equipment. Improving the quality of human resources in using navigation equipment will ensure that the Bridge Resource Management runs well on board.
