The ShipInsight In-Depth Guides have in a very short time become established around the world as a key tool for decision makers and purchasers within ship operation and shipowning organisations.
A safe ship requires two things: a skilled crew and the means to evacuate safely in times when circumstances become too difficult to deal with. Training and competency is a necessity for a safe and efficient shipping industry and thankfully there are universal standards for most aspects of operation contained within the key regulatory document the STCW Code.
This 148 page guide explains in depth the regulation around basic training and skills acquisition in conjunction with the provision of lifesaving appliances and systems for fire-detection and fighting. It will prove useful to all who have responsibility for ensuring the safety of ships and those on them whether passengers, contractors or crew.
