A vital global educational resource on the human element was launched on 12 July for the benefit of the whole maritime industry. Lloyd’s Register Foundation and The Nautical Institute have joined together in producing a special limited edition bound set of all 40 issues of Alert! the human element bulletin.
It is understood that enough have been produced for every maritime training college in the world to have a copy so all will have access to the topics and case studies covered by the project over its 14-year history.
The volume acknowledges the enduring significance of these topics and the continued role of Alert! bulletins in helping to improve safety at sea, said Professor Richard Clegg, Foundation Chief Executive, Lloyd’s Register Foundation, which has funded the project.
As a result of the project some 2.5 million of the four series of Alert! bulletins comprising 350 articles had been distributed around the world; 21 innovative videos were produced for free download and a reference library of 250 papers has been made available online.
