"During 2016, the NTSB's [National Transportation Safety Board] work to make marine transportation safer took us to many accident sites and continued in our laboratories in Washington, D.C. The accidents in Safer Seas Digest involved loss of life, injuries, and property damage. The lessons learned in these accidents can prevent such losses in the future if marine stakeholders apply what has been learned. Not only mariners, but management and executives as well, should take these lessons to heart. Safety culture begins at the top; the lessons in Safer Seas Digest should be as important to those in C-suites as they are to those at sea."
