>NTSB Adds to Marine Most Wanted List

>The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently issued its 2010 Most Wanted List of Transportation Safety Improvements. Under the maritime transportation mode, the NTSB says the Coast Guard should: (1) require domestic vessel operators to develop, implement, and maintain a systematic and documented Safety Management System (SMS) to improve their safety practices and minimize risk; and (2) set working hour limits for mariners based on fatigue research, circadian rhythms, and sleep and rest requirements. NTSB also says States should: (1) require mandatory eductation of boat operators; and (2) require use of life jackets by children.
