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.
