As we know, there are two Cods introduced by the IMO as a result of so many maritime accidents including shipboard casualties and marine pollution prevention, namely ISM Code and STCW Code. Their timely introduction to the shipping industry was aimed to focus the attention of all people involved to the critical importance of the safety standards. In this book, the authors have addressed the maritime safety through proper and thorough examination of the human factors.
Note that is not prepared to be a sort of purely academic reference book even though some academic arguments addressing the behavioral safety are included. We would rather say that this book will be great when applied as a practitioner’s book containing useful texts that would be interesting for all people working on board as well as to the supporting personnel ashore and operating companies.
All maritime professionals duly caring about the safety of life at sea and prevention of the marine environment pollution will definitely find the content of this publication useful. Starting with the brief historical background, then author has proceeded to literally all important aspects of the maritime safety making the book an absolutely excellent volume with a truly remarkable coverage of the topics.
