Ongoing investigation

Safety report about the design and use of risk assessments in shipboard operations


In this report, DMAIB will take a closer look at the preconditions for carrying out risk assessments for shipboard operations, e.g. the situations in which they are carried out and the methods used. Instead of looking at risk assessments in hindsight to evaluate whether persons did good or bad, the focus is on understanding how the support tools for carrying out risk assessments influence how risk is understood by mariners.
