We, the authors' team for the newly established Human Element bulletin, are very happy to welcome everyone involved in the shipping industry (and any related industry as well), meaning both professionals of today and the students, to the 1st release of Alert! human element bulletin and the we are now about to start the completely new campaign with the ultimate intention to raise the attention of the commercial maritime industry professionals to the awareness of Human Element issues. This project is planned to take approximately three-years - it is run by The Nautical Institute and fully supported by the LRS (Lloyd's Register of Shipping) Class Society, one of the leading class societies in the world. The materials that are included in our bulletins, are all prepared by the recognized experts sharing their professional opinion on the various issues, and will of course be of great use for the readers. In this pilot issue of the HE we are going to shed some light on the classification society's and naval architect's professional views of the basic Human Element matters, look at some marine engineering perspectives, go through several interesting accident investigation reports, etc. The publication is supplemented with this short video film.
