Improving awareness of the human element in the maritime industry.

A unique resource of professional maritime articles and bulletins, FREE to all.Some of the many themes of each issue include Fatigue, Ergonomics and Training, Health, and more.
This is a Nautical Institute project, sponsored by The Lloyd’s Register Educational Trust, to improve the awareness of the human element in the maritime industry.

The project seeks to represent the views of all sectors of the maritime industry. Suitable for:

  • Mariners
  • Engineers
  • Naval architects
  • Port operators
  • Regulators
  • Insurers

The purpose of Alert! is to establish a common database for, and to promote debate on, all maritime related human element research, focusing attention on areas of weakness that may lead to new research projects, while offering a vehicle for distributing and applying the results.

Also check out our Alert! vodcasts on the site!

Alert! Vodcasts are short (approx 4min) films that can be viewed online or downloaded to your computer or smartphone, aimed at anyone with an interest in the Maritime Human Element.

Each Vodcast corresponds to an edition of the award winning Alert! Bulletins. Why not use them as a free study aid, embed them into your Powerpoint presentations or share with friends and colleagues on your social networking page?
