Why Thousands of Lives Perished When the Titanic Sank?
Have you watched one of the top-grossing films of all time, Titanic? We have all been moved by the poignant story between Jack and Rose and the massive ship that caused the deadliest maritime disaster in modern history. I’d like to ask you this question – how come thousands of lives perished when the Titanic sank?
You must have thought of hypothermia or even drowning, in its literal sense. It was however noted in many reports and studies that the answer to the question, how come thousands died when the Titanic sank is there were not enough lifeboats for everyone. This has been the classic case in point I have been using when preaching standards and quality.
It was a time in history where people questioned shipping standards and regulations, among other issues, which arose from the tragedy. If the shipping standards and regulations at the time were dealt with stringent management, it would have been a different scenario or the loss of life and the casualties could have been reduced.
Standard is defined as “A required or agreed level of quality or attainment” and Regulations, is defined as “A rule or directive made and maintained by an authority”. In the Recruitment and Staffing space, spanning across a multitude of business sectors like Environmental Health and Safety, Oil and Gas, Aviation, Retail, Healthcare, Financial, Power, and Utilities or others – there are standards and regulations imposed by a legitimate office. Standards and regulations are made to protect both entities – employer and employee. Complying with standards and regulations of the governing body is imperative and tantamount to success.
Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA), for instance, is to prevent major hazards; the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) ensures the overall welfare of the overseas Filipino workers – these examples of administrations decreeing these standards and regulations ensure safety and quality for everyone.
And in today’s highly regulated marketplace, an error or a noncompliance could mean a lot of financial breakdowns or worse, a negative business impact that may surely cause some serious damages to the employer.
It’s high time to take control of your staffing essentials – which means it’s high time to work with the fastest growing POEA agency in the Philippines.
