Bob Couttie has written for a number of maritime industry publications, including the prestigious Lloydâ€™s List International daily newspaper and Lloydâ€™s Ship Manager magazine. His reportage on problems with shipâ€™s officer certification examinations in the Philippines in the late 1990s influenced the adoption of computerized examinations for ship officers by the countryâ€™s Professional Regulatory Commission. . Bob's current work, Maritime Accident Casebook, draws episodes from investigations around the world to explore in a informal, entertaining and accessible way how and why such incidents happen and how they might be avoided. Each casefile consists of an audio podcast, accompanied by a transcript with illustrations and links to further information. Except where otherwise indicated, opinions and recommendations are those of the author.
