Most of the accidents at sea are due to Human Error. Human error can be reduced by proper training and motivation. Accidents mainly happen due to lack of management, taking shortcuts, complacency, attitudes, etc.
The responsibilities to avoid accidents flow from the top down; from the shore establishment to the Master, to each and every individual aboard. "Safety awareness" by all hands is the biggest single factor in reducing accidents.
The role of the Marine Safety Officer is to promote Safety Culture by training and motivating the crew. And continuously inspecting and auditing the vessels against the requirements of SOLAS and the ISM code. It is the desire of every seafarer to work in a safe and healthy environment.
