The Human Factor


The importance of the human factor in the corporate governance of any industry should be obvious to all. And how much more crucial this is in the hazardous environment of marine transport, where skill and professionalism are required to co-exist with an unforgiving sea. Directly or indirectly, "human error" has been responsible for the vast majority of marine accidents, but curiously, the human element has tended to be positioned well down on the list of priorities, with regulatory efforts focussed upon the structure and equipment of ships and their operating criteria.

The latest in a series of high level quality shipping conferences, attempts to tackle human factors head on, with a carefully developed programme concentrating on the importance of people and their contribution to the quality and safety culture. Previous events in this series of meetings have focussed upon the shared responsibility for shipping safety, the regulatory response to safety demands, risk based solutions and the development of incentives for best practice and quality shipping. But all these strands can be traced back to the human factor, and it is this feature which the forthcoming Mare Forum will strongly emphasise.
