This book provides students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, systematic knowledge of HRM in shipping, and offers researchers a valuable source of reference and a solid foundation on which further development can be built. This book is also useful for professionals in the industry. Shipping is a safety-critical industry. It is increasingly recognised that human error underlies the majority of maritime accidents. As such, there is a shift in regulatory and management focus from technical matters onto the human element. As such, HRM is at the core of ship management, and good HRM practices may offer a competitive advantage.
