Safety considerations must take precedence to ensure that anyone relying on charter transportation remains safe. Safe charter companies must consider take necessary precautions to ensure that their busses do not put the lives of passengers at risk. The risks of catastrophic injury should always be considered by safe vessel operators. When charter operators fail to account for the known hazards of the industry catastrophic injuries or deaths can result. Safe companies must hire and train only individuals who can carry out the work without putting at risk the lives of dozens of passengers.
