The International Maritime Organization (IMO), the United Nations' specialized organizationfor ship safety i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The maritime industry is still characterized by prescriptive standards and reactive approaches in relation to safety and risk management to a large extent. For a very long time, responses to maritime accidents have been in terms of automation, regulation and training. While this as such is not wrong, it does not offer the full potential that concep...

The EC funded CyClaDes research project is designed to promote the increased impact of the human element in shipping across the design and operational lifecycle. It addresses the design and operation of ships and ship systems. One of the CyClaDes’ tasks is to create a crew-centered design case-study examination of the information that is shared bet...
Article
Full-text available
The development of human factor- (HF) related regulations of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has often been the result of responses to maritime accidents. The typical reaction to an accident has been a combination of (mainly technical) regulations, changing of procedures and training. Systemic evaluations and changes have rarely been...
Article
The development of a new technology, the definition of a new regulation or an organisational change aims to increase a positive performance (i.e. safety and cost effectiveness) or decrease a negative performance (i.e. occurrence of accidents or workload) in a system. However, change can also be the origin of consequences that have not been anticipa...
Article
Full-text available
The recent foundering of the Costa Concordia in January 2012 demonstrated that accidents can occur even with ships that are considered masterpieces of modern technology and despite more than 100 years of regulatory and technological progress in maritime safety. The purpose of this paper is, however, not to speculate about the concrete causes of the...

Project
SAFEPEC -Innovative risk-based tools for ship safety inspection- project aims to promote proactive safety and develop a ‘unified risk-based framework’ built upon the analysis of historical data of casualties, near miss cases, deficiencies and non-conformities that are detected by various types of inspections. Another outcome of the project is a software prototype that enables the interoperability and coherent interpretation of those data sources; and can contribute to the early detection of failure, either in the ship structure or its equipment. Workshops and other engagement activities will be organised to collect the stakeholder views about the products developed during the project. Based on the feedback obtained along these events, a set of recommendations for proactive ship inspection policy will be elaborated.
