Many factors play a key role in reducing the number of accidents at sea e.g. advanced technical equipment, safe routing and greater awareness through improved quality and safety systems to name but a few. However, due to the very nature of the shipping industry there will always be a risk element and prompt and professional assistance is essential should an accident occur.
