Making the Safe, Safer

This article discusses how the flagged domestic passenger vessel industry in the United States (U.S.) is one of the safest modes of transportation in the country. According to the Passenger Vessel Association (PVA), the U.S. passenger vessel industry safely carries more than 200 million passengers each year. Though no injury or fatality is acceptable, this industry record is particularly significant and this is a testament to the professionalism of vessel operators and their commitment to maintaining a high standard of safety for passengers and crew. The passenger vessel industry got this safety record by developing safety and training programs that work and creating an atmosphere where all employees work toward a common safety goal.
