Customer Reviews

so much in such a small book Review by Mark
I am writing a lifeboat handling course (STCW PSCRB) for the maritime college I run. This is a great text book to give to students and also a really good concise guide to give to my staff as well. It draws upon causes of incidents and accidents and makes straightforward suggestions for accident prevention.
Good example procedures and risk assessment at the back. Highly recommended for novices and also for experienced staff needing a prompt. (Posted on 19/06/2014)
