So true about most things. Unfortunately, it seems to take a major disaster to do what needs to be done.As that was the wake up call to make big improve on safety standards for survival
Its not just ships that takes a major disaster to improve safety, it applies to other forms of transport as well. like planes. vehicles, trains and ferries too.So true about most things. Unfortunately, it seems to take a major disaster to do what needs to be done.
Is climate change going to be the next great disaster? And will it be reversible?
No. These days, from my understanding, on board cruise ships and ocean liners (QM2) everyone is assigned a lifeboat and walked through the processes of evacuation during the lifeboat drill. So, in an event similar to Titanic everyone would be expected to congregate at their assigned lifeboat and would be loaded on in no particular order.Is there still even a women and children rule today? I think modern safety standards have made it possible to eliminate such protocols. Those who are part of the LGBT+ community would not have worry about that. That being said, if someone were to claim their gender identity to be different than their physical appearance, it absolutely would not have been honored or taken seriously in 1912.
I think the women and children first rule somewhat stems from the idea of gender superiority and sexism of the times. Of course children are helpless, but women? That’s a different story.
