THE NEED FOR A STRUCTURED POLICY TOWARDS REDUCING HUMAN FACTOR ERRORS IN MARINE ACCIDENTS

The paper questions why so little attention has been given to the primary control centre of a merchant ship, namely the bridge, when so many accidents at sea are caused by "human error". The paper than suggests that there is a need for a policy which will draw the various threads of the problem together in a form suitable for international discussion and even legislation. The identified areas are those of training, bridge design, psychology and marine traffic discipline.
