Safe maritime companies must perform regular maintenance and inspections in order to ensure the safety of their crew members. When ship operators fail to conduct regular maintenance and inspection of the equipment on their vessels, dangerous incidents can result. This not only puts the lives of hardworking seamen at risk, but can also endanger members of the public.
A recreational boating accident can be the result of many factors, including: human error, weather conditions, equipment failure, poor maintenance practices, waves caused by other vessels, or a lack of equipment. An incident can often be a result of a combination of the above factors. Ultimately though, many of these incidents are preventable.
