We investigate accidents on Danish and Greenlandic ships, and accidents on foreign ships in Danish and Greenlandic water. We also investigate serious accidents related to commercial diving.
The goal with the investigation is to clarify the accidents, and to provide education about safety at sea. The investigations do not take precautions about punishment- or replacement courtly relations.
The Danish Maritime Accident Investigation Board investigates approximately 110 accidents yearly, where 10 of these investiagtions are published as sea accident repports or as investigation resumées. Furthermore, the board's employees are hosting 20-30 lectures yearly about different topics on safety at sea, and general safety and accident theoretical subjects.
