The foremost one is to understand the definition of governmental functions concerning maritime safety. Next the industry should work within a skeleton of maritime safety regulations. The safety navigation is put in danger by the uncomfortable shortage of aids to navigation such as light houses, search and rescue capability, vessel traffic control system, and weather forecasting and information dissemination.
Safety measures include the safety performance among boat workers that should be observed and evolved into a key component of their reward and giving employees a vested interest in the safe operation of every journey.

Even if there is enough safety, accidents that took place in recent years give the impression that sea travel remains a risky adventure.
