Shipboard/vessel Operations

For the uninitiated, shipboard operations can be complex and confusing. From the hierarchy of command, to navigation and security, the rules and culture at sea are different and often foreign to industry outsiders.

The experts at Robson Forensic have served at sea and on land, overseeing other Captains and their vessels, developing policy standards, and conducting investigations into major incidents and accidents.
