Titanic safety lessons
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.
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.
