FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE TITANIC DISASTER:

Following the Titanic disaster, the first ever International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea was held. These are some of the recommendations that came out of that meeting:

  1. Creation of the International Ice Patrol to monitor icebergs;
  2. Separate frequency for distress signals and messages;
  3. Universal adoption of the distress call S.O.S.;
  4. 24-hour radio watch on all ships carrying 50 or more passengers;
  5. Shipping lanes shifted farther south;
  6. Steamships now carry search lights;
  7. Passenger ships must carry enough lifeboats to hold everyone on board;
  8. Lifeboat drills must now be conducted by both passengers and crew.
