The paper is in two parts. The first deals with the historical background to training for seafarers, and signifiant events which have produced legislation. It also discusses the ways in which education and training have developed and considers the courses leading to statutory examinations, and makes some analysis of their "safety" content. In the second part of the paper the theme is developed that training and legislation are not likely to be fully effective unless conditions encourage the seafarers to behave in a safety manner. Finally, some conclusions are drawn from British methods of education and training for safety at sea and a systems approach to the general safety problem is suggested.
