Marine Safety is already an intense concern, nationally and internationally. This paper offers some views on how improvements might be made in the design and administration of tanker safety plans. Brief perspective is given on marine risks, ship casualties and personal injuries. Since human errors predominate in ship casualties, the area of corrective actions must be centered on "human factors." Safety is now a professional discipline; new ideas from industry can strengthen marine safety. True total costs of accidents are far larger than generally believed. The concept of "Total Loss Control" shows this and can be used to improve safety plans. Management benefits demonstrated. Includes model safety plan for tanker operation and training and the use of simulators.
