SCRAPING THE BARNACLES

Often, it takes tragedy or other highly impacting incidents to bring about positive change. This is particularly true concerning safety improvements in the maritime industry. The 1990s were a milestone decade in maritime safety and environmental advances, following several important government and other stakeholder policy recommendations. This article describes new management practices--focusing on safety, human and natural environments, economic growth and mobility, and security--adopted by the U.S. Coast Guard's Office of Marine Safety and Environmental Protection (G-M) to help attain higher levels of maritime safety awareness, practices, and programs.
