Abstract Lessons from maritime accidents are conventionally used to inform safety improvements in design and operation of ships. However, this process is only as good as the core understanding derived from accident analysis is. The current explanation of accidents is limited to direct and contributing causal factors, whereas the role of a wider socio-technical context that has given rise to causal mechanisms behind major maritime accidents in recent years is left unexplained. The paper describes...

Abstract Designing maritime safety management systems commonly follows basic processes which focus on fulfilling the demands of the regulations in the industry. This provokes designing systems with limited application which are not capable to efficiently use the guidance contained in regulatory demands, and more importantly, creating systems which are not capable of representing, evaluating, and improving the dynamic management of safety-critical organizations. This article proposes a safety sys...

Abstract As the initiatives to develop and implement autonomous merchant vessels into the global shipping industry are gaining momentum, their safety remains in the spotlight. It is argued that every effort shall be taken to ensure that the safety of maritime transportation is not reduced in the process, but the question of how to achieve it remains open. Meanwhile, the systemic approach is more widely being used to analyse innovative systems’ safety. We therefore apply a System-Theoretic Proces...

Abstract The complexity of a deepwater well control system makes defining appropriate safety requirements with traditional safety analysis methods difficult. Hence, there is a need for a complex systems approach for better understanding the development and prevention of accidents during deepwater drilling. Differing from traditional methods based on reliability theory, we use the system-theoretic accident model and process (STAMP) and system-theoretic process analysis (STPA) methods to establish...

Abstract Unmanned merchant vessels' prototypes are expected to come into operation within a few years. This revolutionary shift in the shipping industry is feared to negatively impact the safety of maritime transportation. Therefore, in order to support future designers of remotely operated merchant vessels system, we applied System-Theoretic Process Analysis (STPA), identifying the most likely safety control structure of the analysed system and investigating it. The aim was to suggest potential...

Summary Expert judgment informs a variety of important applications in conservation and natural resource management, including threatened species management, environmental impact assessment, and structured decision-making. However, expert judgments can be prone to contextual biases. Structured elicitation protocols mitigate these biases and improve the accuracy and transparency of the resulting judgments. Despite this, the elicitation of expert judgment within conservation and natural resource m...

The ongoing existence of workplace accidents suggests that opportunities exist for organisations, regulators and other government bodies to improve their ability to learn from past events. The processes and outcomes of incident investigations are crucial to understanding the vulnerabilities and opportunities associated with work related incidents and accidents. Many scholarly articles exist that discuss the failure to learn from industrial incidents and incident investigation processes. However,...

Abstract The objective of this paper is to outline a framework for online risk modelling for autonomous ships. There is a clear trend towards increased autonomy and intelligence in ships because it enables new functionality, as well as safer and more cost-efficient operations. Nevertheless, emerging risks are involved, related to lack of knowledge and operational experience with the autonomous systems, the dependency on complex software-based control systems, as well as a limited ability to veri...

This article describes a case study using a fault tree analysis for a multi-operational-state system (system with several operational states) model with many different technical solutions for the power system of a fishing vessel. We describe the essence of system dependability metamodeling. A vector of external events was used to construct a detailed metamodel, depending on the operational status being modeled. In a fault tree, individual external events modify the structure of a system. The ana...
