Casualty response

The biggest issue in those first moments is lack of information and only a partial understanding of what is happening. Often the incident will be over the horizon and in a maritime setting crew members may have been arrested making fact finding even more difficult. As we know often it is not the event itself which causes the most reputational damage, but the response. The inability to respond quickly in a world where social media is ready to condemn, even where no fault has been found, is critical.
