Abstract

Most marine accidents related to vessels are the results of human error, such as mis-detection, mis-judgment and mis-operation. A particular example is the frequent collisions that occur between fishing vessels and cargo vessels in the waters off Japan that often result in the loss of life. In this context, the safety assessment for this type of marine accident is carried out in accordance with Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) approved by IMO in 2002 using the following steps; 1) Identification of hazards by Variation Tree Analysis, 2) Construction of Marine Casualty Database, 3) Collision Course Analysis, 4) Risk Assessment by Event Tree Analysis, 5) Estimation of probabilities of collisions based on ship traffic data and 6) Evaluation of Risk Control Options with Contingent Valuation Method.
