Titanic safety lessons

April 15, 2019

A moment's silence to remember those who perished.

 

The story now being taught even to young children.

 

The most prestigious beautiful ship ever built.

 

Famous for all the wrong reasons.

 

A heart-breaking tragedy, sinking the unsinkable, an iceberg ripping a hole in the hull, on a maiden voyage.

 

1500 died.

 

02:20hrs, 15 April 1912.

 

An awful maritime disaster, never to be forgotten.

Humanity's sorrow continues: an icicle shard in each of our hearts.

 

How could this happen? A string of human errors.

 

Maritime safety vastly improved as a direct result.

 

But how quickly we can forget: often similar circumstances continue to arise. 74 years later there was Chernobyl.

 

Have we learnt?

 

[Time pressure, management pressure, financial pressure]

[Equipment issues, resource issues, support issues]

 

There is a degree of risk in life's everything.

 

A unique video well to remember, thanks go to Yestervid; a perfect choice of thoughtful touching music by Bobby Cole.

 

We owe it to ourselves & to honour victims of all such catastrophes.

 

To be individual and corporate giants of quality & safety first.
