Navigation’s crucial role in ensuring global vessel safety
It is said that 80% of maritime accidents are due to human error, but to what extent can shipping take navigational competence for granted?

Does the onus of safe navigation in our important waterways sit with the governments or do owners and managers have a crucial role to play when it comes to funding such essentials?
