Alert 10 - Regulation - For the guidance of wise men and the blind obedience of fools. Wherever we are, we are sourrounded by rules and regulations - of course, rules are for our benefit, they are designed to protect us from danger, stops us from getting hurt, or worse... In our business, along with regulations, we have got standards, recommendations, conventions all designed to protect us, the machines we use, our systems and the environment. But the accidents at sea still happen - while no one is suggesting the regulations are not important, there is one important question that has to be answered - do rules and regulations take account of the human element? That is what we will be looking at in this issue of Alert. The video supplements this training booklet addressing same matters.
