The safety of ships at sea has been an increasingly high profile subject in recent years, and despite some improvements in certain maritime sectors, the majority consensus is that much can still be done to improve the overall situation and that high technology simulator-based training can play an important role for the future. Johan de Jong, manager of MARIN's Nautical Centre MSCN, took up the theme of safety in a discussion with Alan Dickey for MARIN Report.
