Maritime Resource Management for Pilipino Seafarers
A Brief Description:
In the recent times with technological enhancement there is a marked improvement in ship structure; systems have become more reliable and sophisticated. However, these improvements have failed to translate into safety. Maritime safety is a prominently a human issue. Various studies highlights that human error is the major cause of all ship related incidents and accidents. Human error contributes to 84.88 percent of tanker accidents, 79 percent of towing vessel groundings, almost 96 percent of collisions and 75 percent of fires and explosions on ships. The only way to reduce maritime casualties is to address human related issues.
