However, authorities and a section of the public feel that the device could be a safety issue, as riders could crash into boats or coral reefs. Additionally, there are concerns that water-powered jet-packs could pose an environmental threat to marine life. This may come about through damage to coral reefs, which provide habitat to various forms of marine life. Finally, authorities are also concerned that the device could scare away fish from fishing nets. Companies that are in the business of renting out the device claim that their reviews on its environmental impacts have revealed that they are neither harmful to marine environment nor do they scare away fish. They have also not received any reports of serious injuries to riders (Carlton, 21).
Relation of Article to Human Resource Management
Evidently, state authorities in areas that the devices are in operation should conduct their own reviews to solve the issue. This article is related to human resource management in the sense that authorities need to hire qualified individuals to conduct the review on the safety and environmental impact of the jet-packs. This hiring will involve selection and assessment of potential employees to undertake the task, bringing human resource issues into play (Martin, 46).
